Thanx for your interst Purrbox! I'll try to get some pics up maybe tonight. In the meantime, here's the stats....
Black small gravel substrate
All live plants
2 pieces of driftwood
Lighting is basic flourescent strip light
I don't know the CO2
details?? How do I find that out?
I'll test it tonight when I get off of work.
My water quality is good, I'm certain. I use a DI
and do frequent PWC
. Normally my PH is between 6.5 and 6.8, ammonia 0, nitrites 0, and nitrates are hard to read on my test kit, but I'm guessing they're O.K
. I'll test it tonight and post the results.
I don't have anything that test for phosphates or KH
Does fert mean fertilizer? (Go ahead, it's O.K
. to giggle) Is that the same as plant food?
There's only one thing I add to the tank. It's Plant Gro from Nutrafin. I don't add it that often because it has iron in it, and I'm not sure how O.K
. that is with my Discus. They're the most important thing in the tank to me.
They are all pale and orange to dark red. They do not get bigger than a little over an inch. (I've had success with them in another tank years ago) No brown at all. I was told the males willl have the darker red coloring to them. They do not look like they're painted. The last one died last night, so I can't take any pics to show you now. I have no surface plants. I did at one point have some hornwort, but that died. I gotta run to work. I'll be back on tonight
