hopefully by joining this forum, u will all be able to provide me with some useful information and advice i making my newly setup community tank ( about three months old ) a success. it is a planted aquarium with large pieces of driftwood and gravel. i have also installed the c02 system for the plants.this really is my main aim as I really am such a newbie!!, i have a RIO 180 with an internal filter and also have an external filter (Fluval 305 )..... my tank has the following species
1 upsidedown catfish
5 black widow tetra
3 phantom tetras
1 blue dwarf gourami
2 kissing gourami
1 pearl gourami
3 large angel fish
1 small angel fish
1 bala shark
2 young torpedo barbs
3 baloon mollies
( is this too much, as the tank still seems quite empty )
few questions to start......
is it ok to have 2 filters running at same time?
how do i get rid of driftwood discoloration
is it ok to vacuum the gravel ( i have read conflicting advice )
have used INTERPET GREEN AWAY but this has made water cloudy ???
any advice would be really appreciated
