Does anybody have any advice or have any experience about setting up a planted tank. I cant remember if it washereor not, but I was going to use the Walstad Method for it.
But I got advice from somebody who works in a house & garden shop saying it would take a month for the 'soil' to settle and lose the chemicals.
At the moment I have a seperate 128L tak with fish and plants but the feckin fish keep digging them up from the substrate (gravel), so I thought I might aswell try and grow it in a seperate tank and possible keeping them for other tanks/giveing to others. I have 2 tanks available to me (for free, I'm not spending money on it) and have a filter for each tank, but no lights yet, and I was thinking about using the water from water changes from the main tank to fill them up! Maybe I might be better off using fresh water? I was considering putting the minnow I have into these tanks, as they're plant friendly
Any helpful response is appreciated!
