So once my tests are over, I'm planning to convert my 10 gallon into a planted tank. I want some beginner plant names to start my research. And tips. Lotsa tips.
My tank has 1 dwarf gourami and 6 neon tetras with a sponge filter and 1 air stone.
Cichlids are omnivores. You can give either sinking pellets or flakes as a staple food, and occasionally feed them spinach (cichlids love greens!). You can also give some live food like brine shrimp as a treat.
As for brands, I use Tetra for all my fish. I am not sure about Omega One.
