yep, just push one under sand close to each plant about once per month. super easy as that is what I have going on and everything is living and growing. probably can even do every other month depending on how things are growing or notThanks bitseriously! 2c are always appreciated! Want plants both because of their look, and because they help filter the nitrates a bit. I'm A-OK using root tabs if needed, was just thinking there might be some plants that don't really need them. But not problem if they help.
I do not want floating plants - have some in another tank, do not want to use them again. Really looking for something I can plant. Out of the plants you listed, are any of them very sturdy in the sense that they are not likely to break apart? I got hornwort one time and it was a disaster, it came apart into a million different pieces over time and I had to pick them all out one by one.
P.S. - how does one do root tabs? Just push one under the sand right next to the planted plant, and repeat ever few months? Or is it more difficult than that?
I'll take that yes with the pics as in it is still effective haha. Good thing this tank has only been rolling for a little under a week.. I will add some this weekend!
I use the Seachem line.I'll take that yes with the pics as in it is still effective haha. Good thing this tank has only been rolling for a little under a week.. I will add some this weekend!
That is Pool Filter Sand from ACE Hardware.HI Homeslice! Just came across this thread. I was also wondering about plants in sand. I have seen the Seachem black sand, but am interested in light sand. Thunder_o_b curious what is the light sand you have in the last ? Looking for a slightly more coarse than fine light sand, plants, kuhlis, AFD. Wanted to plant Vallisneria? And a Buce....?
