I have a 20 gallon tank with 12-13 adolescent guppies it is heavily planted, and am curious what else I may be able to get in there? I definitely wanted mystery snails, or at least one. Any input is appreciated.
your input is appreciated and I realized earlier one prior guppies that died they pooped clear and that meant illness so I’ve learned to treat that as well and not blame oxygenation etc I suppose I bought them that way but things like oxygenation that I can help I try my best with
no illness only a few hanging at the top but I put a circulation pump in with bubbles today and it appears to have done the trick no one at the top and all are moving active and even swim in the current
I notice that they do it more in the evening but I had another one die this morning, it is only the adults from the pet store and not my fry or the ones I have from a breeder. I do notice that a few fry will chill out at the top of the tank on occasion
No glues nothing I still got a circulation pump on sale anyway to try it why not at least I’ll get my answer I do water changes twice a week
I do water tests too there is always what seems to be a minute amount of ammonia like below .25 but it’s hardly recognizable in the test kit
Java Fern, Wisteria, Hornwort, Amazon Sword, and a moss ball. I have Over 20 fry and 4 adolescents and two adults, yes i am aware there is overstocking
i also do have a small airator that bubbles but its not much
I bought all three from the same place but the small one that is not doing well i have had for longer. It makes no sense to me. The others are doing well. If i get rid of the small one its just another reason for me to go buy more plants :)
Can anyone tell me why my amazon sword in the foreground is doing mediocre and why the ones in the back are doing so well? Parameters are normal and I dose flourish by seachem. None of the swords have root tabs. I would say that’s the issue but the others are flourishing. (No pun intended)
I just read all of that and it is so cool. I will definitely do that to the new filter and let the bacteria build up, once that is ok I'll do it to the other filter. Thank you so much for that what an awesome idea!
