    20 Gallon Tank How do you add floating plants from a Facebook marketplace seller

    Maybe you could first rinse them and then float them in dechlorinated water in a bucket or any other container and check for any dead stuff and passengers before adding to your tank. I do not know how hornwort deals with peroxide and/or excel rinse so cant recommend. If you decide to use...

    Keeping aquarium cool in a heat wave

    I have bunch of 1.5L water bottles circling between tank and how many i can fit in the freezer (my tank is also way bigger so it cools soooo slowly) it's quite annoying as they take quite the time to freeze so need many bottles I only dare to lift the lid off when I can observe the tank...

    Stocking suggestions and ideas.

    72°F - 80°F (22°C - 27°C) is the recommended range for rummies but Ive kept my tank no lower than 24C winter time and temps tend to rise near the max on summer days Since rummies still prefer temps closer to the max of the range Id like something going well with similar preferences so near...

    I have 10 rummynose tetras who love to take bites of the younger salvinia leaves and roots sometimes but the plant still takes over.

    Growth Rate: giant salvinia vs dwarf water lettuce

    Not sure if there is much difference between natans and auriculata growrh wise but you may have might need to try them yourself as everything doesnt work for everyone like Fisch mentioned. And since you can get the lettuce for free you might as well just save a buck using what already works

    Growth Rate: giant salvinia vs dwarf water lettuce

    I have salvinia auriculata and have to dump alot of it to bio every month so it doesn't block all the light in my tank. But I bet you can choose either of those for your purpose, just pick whichever you like the visually more or mix them!

    Last Chance before I get out of the hobby

    I was thinking, since you used to have co2 if i understood correctly.. Now that you dont have it you might have too much light/nutrients compared to when you ran co2 and the balance is off. I would consider trying to dim your lighting or reduce lighting time as light is the most common issue...

    Aquarium plants that can tolerate a ph of 7.5 to 8.0

    I have 2 varieties of swords, anubias barteri, a lot of ambulia, bacopa monnieri, 2 types of crypts parva and wendtii, marsilea hirsuta carpet and salvinia as floaters.. So far all of them do great in 7.6 pH. Most common plants should adapt to waters even up to 8.5 but might have a little...

    Nerite shell, pale on the edge?

    I added CC (into filter and mixed into substrate) and a bit of GH salt when I got them. My GH has been quite stable since (6-7).. but before that I've had the tank running after my last move at very low GH so I believe that all the algae that had formed before adding supplements and the snails...

    Nerite shell, pale on the edge?

    Not sure if new growth of shell, there is a clear line. Is there a lack of food or something? They have cleaned almost all possible surface in my tank from bba/diatoms in a month I've had them
