New user to this site today :)

Hello. My name is Ashley. I have kept tanks for most of my life and right now I have a 40 gallon long freshwater aquarium that has only been set up for 3 months. I have 4 juvenile Angelfish (my fav), about 10 neon tetras, 2 fancy male guppies, and a small pleco. I have a combination of 3 live plants (ruffle plants) and fake plastic plants but I plan on getting rid of the plastic ones and having a 100% live planted tank as soon as funds will allow. The PH in the tank is good and the fish are thriving and the plants are growing even though I am new to planted tanks. I use Coralife Colormax 7,000K bulbs and but I haven't put in a plant growing substrate. I have been looking at liquid supplement products online such as Natural Aqaurium Vital to replace a C02 injector. Does anyone have any experience using these type of products? Will plants thrive with these types of products alone? Thanks for taking a look and I hope that everyone has a great day.

Welcome to Aquarium Advice! There are all sorts of plants, some with more requirements than others. Unfortunately, I am no expert in the plant field at all! You may want to post a plant thread question in this forum. http://www.aquariumadvice.com/forums/f24/

We have some great plant people here.

Thanks for joining us!
Please don't forget about the toxins in some corals (like zoas and palythoas)
