That look like Rotala Indica, grown out big, but I can't tell much other wise. Low Def. Picture
I think you might be right Lucas. It does look very similar to it. Also goes by the name Rotala Rotundifolia if im not mistaken.
Right guys plants are ordered and have gone for easy plants that can grow very well without Co2. Here is a full plant list below and where there going to be positioned.
Can you edit that photo with how many plants you will have in each area please.
Im not sure how many plants will be in each area Keith. They all arrive next week so will update then.
Thank you for doing that.
Hi Gary, Not sure could be this pog
Thanks Roy I ended up going for Rotala Rotundifolia
How are the plants going strong I hope?
I planted the background plants about a week ago and so far seeing good growth. Updated photos will be coming soon Keith
Thank you for your prompt reply.
Update: Put some Hygrophila difformis, Heteranthera zosterifolia, Rotala rotundifolia,Bacopa Caroliniana, Amazon Frogbit and Peacock Moss about a week ago and seen some very good growth so far
Had a snail outbreak aswell, Anyone have any ideas how to get rid?
Are they eating your plants or decor?
I've always used eSha Gastropex. Some folk haven't had too much success with it tho'.
However I've found that if I...
dose according to the instructions, and then a week later dose again, after a 50% water change, it works fine...
I've totally eradicated snails in both my low and high-energy tanks this way...
However, TBH I've also always put in a few assassins after a couple more water changes just in case there are any hidden survivors.
NB Don't forget to take in to account the capacity of your filter and remove all absorbable filter media...charcoal, purigen etc.
I had a snail attack back in the day, and I finally just let them go nuts on all the detritus I used to have. After they exhausted that source, they calmed down a lot.
For the snails three methods I would recommend "Squashoooo" every time you see them and a few Assassin Snails.
Two or three small hungry Clown Loach's they will dig out the snail eggs and eat snails all day.
My other question do you have your filter inlet and outlet plus the heater at one end?
Are you going to add any more inhabitants to your lovely tank?
Thank You Troi I will be sure to give it a try
They aren't eating any of my plants but they have become a nuisance they are everywhere. Im not sure if Im fully stocked Keith, I currently have 9 Black Neon Tetras and a Betta. Do you think I can add more fish?
Run this program then you will be able to see how many and what fish are suitable matches.
Thanks for the link I went to my LFS and got 6 Cardinal Tetras and an Oto. So now have a Betta, 9 Black Neons, 6 Cardinal Tetras and an Oto.
Aqadvisor says my stocking level is 87%, Water Change is 28% a week and aquarium filtration capacity is 268%.
I would add a few more Cardinals and Otos if your filtration is so good.
Water changes 2 X 30% weekly would be even better.
