| | Re: Would Someone Be Willing To Send Me Some Floating Plants?
I am near Waco (McGregor).
PetsMart offered a discounted aquarium for a classroom setting. The teacher ended up with a kit that included a 10 gallon tank, crappy internal filter, hood, 2 incandescent bulbs, dechlor and fish food.
That is what I was dealing with when I got involved.
I asked her to get some gravel (which she did).
I purchased 2 - 15 watt, 6,500K CLF's to replace the incandescent bulbs. I advised her not to get a heater. I seeded the aquarium with some fish poo from my 46 gallon tank, put in a handful of Christmas moss, and floated a little hornwort.
Later, I picked up 5 Bloodfin tetras and put them in.
On Monday or Tuesday, I will tie down the moss to driftwood and hairnet some to rock.
I will instruct the teacher on the use of Flourish and Flourish Excel (which I will provide).
I would also like to try some additional floating plants in there to see how they will do.
That's pretty much it. Want to keep it simple.
