Thanks for all the help you have given me!BottomDweller said:Some plants do better in some conditions than others. Not all aquarium plants would do well in a pond for example. But they really aren't picky.
Yes plants are fine at the start of a cycle.
Always start your focus on the lighting they are getting. Unless a very high tech category yours will probably be classed low light. So java ferns, anubias, java moss, bacopa, anacharis and most cryptocoryne (crypts). Beyond that most are pretty resialiant. You should look up how they get planted though.XenoMarc said:Hello! Before I buy my first aquarium plants in the future, I have a few questions:
Do plants have specific water parameters required?
Can you add plants at the start of a cycle?
I'm no expert in live plants however I believe that those two are fairly low tech and just need a regular light.XenoMarc said:Thanks for the tips! Do anubias and java ferns require any of those stuff like co2 etc?
Thanks for the tip! The fish I'm planning to buy might be stuff like ember tetras, honey gouramis, sterbaI cories, kuhlI loaches, BN pleco and stuff idk yet. Do u think they'll be okay around plants or a no no?VioletSS said:Also consider if your plants will be tasty to your fish (if you are getting a goldfish they'll nibble and dig up some plants more than others.)
I have anubias and java fern in my tank - I'm especially happy with the look and ease of the anubias - in my opinion you can't go wrong with those.
Those fish should be fine with plants. It's mostly goldfish and large cichlids that are destructive towards plants.XenoMarc said:
Okay thanks! Since we have the same tank, is there any way to change the colours of the lights or does it require like a day night cycle thingy?BottomDweller said:Those fish should be fine with plants. It's mostly goldfish and large cichlids that are destructive towards plants.
Thanks for the helpMaddieTaylah said:Sounds like an awesome tank already! The fish you listed shouldn't effect the plants.
