Those plants aren't particularly needy, though I would add root tabs for the root feeders and liquid ferts. There are multiple types of root tabs - I use pre-made Osmocote plus tabs and Seachem Flourish.Papichulo said:Currently I have 6 diamond tetras the tank is coming toawards the very end of its cycle (nock on wood), thhey were supposed to be all beginner plants that's what the dude at the only lfs said, the led light is classified as medium plant light on its site, the plants arewisteria, anacharis, corkscrew val bunch ,bacopa, java fern lace, red ludwigia broad. I'm new to plants and these kind of fish ive only ever had this tank set up for bigger bait fish years ago. If I need ferts please lemme know the brands so I can order them. Thank you for all the help so far guys
The only one that needs medium light is the red Ludwigia, and it might still grow under lower light conditions (it just won't be red).jpm995 said:I know the Java fern grows under any conditions, I think the others need pretty high light. The 55 is a great tank to observe schooling behavior as it's very long and good for small fish as it's narrow [12" wide].
I'd leave them, but add ferts.Papichulo said:the person at the store sold me the plants with the light saying itd be plenty powerful , around where I live there aint no good lfs the one I went to is a 40 minute drive. Should I pull certain llants
It's the right temp! Knowing your PAR ratings would be helpful, but I don't know if Current has released those or if anyone has measured them.Papichulo said:The light is currently on full spectrum light at 6500k 2000 lumens
