How is the algae with the giant anbuia? I would like some plants to keep the nitrates down, but at the same time really don't want to introduce any plants in fear of a big hair algae outbreak...mambee said:Need a lot more info. What type of plants, lighting, etc. I have giant anubia which is tied to driftwood and is outgrowing my 150 gallon tank growing under LEDs. This is a low maintenance plant, like Java fern. Other plants need more intense lighting and co2. You could also put plants in pots with the proper substrate.
There are nutrient products for aquariums available but depending on the type african cichlids you have, it might not be worth it. It seems my fish live to destroy any plant I put in with them, or they eat them.CreeksideBrewery said:Hello, i just added 2 live plants to my 300 gallon (210 display tank & 100 gallon sump) setup. My substrate is pool filter sand. Do i need any additives for these? Is a co2 reactor necessary? Thanks.
