after a heater blowout in my 29g as well as an outbreak of disease, it crashed and killed all of the fish.
so i reset the tank up(tore it apart, got new filter media,and 3 bags of eco complete(2.5 used))
i ordered plants from aquariumplants.com because alot of people said it was good
there were a couple problems getting them but eventually i got them. they were in good conditon, but as expected died off abit, but they didnt stop they kept dying.i had an outbreak of snails and worms(couldnt get a close enough veiw, they were probably planaria) i replanted everything and removed dead leaves(besides anubias, just the vals, swords,and sags) they were still dying but i dont seem to see the worms and it seems like there are less snails
im getting really frustrated. i had watersprite, some sword plant, and 2 anubias nana's and they did great. now it seems like everything is going downhill
48 watts t5ho(i have a second spare light that i dont use, but its the same one)
dwarf sag(just the roots in the substrate)
vallisneria(crown above substrate)
anubias (on dw,doing somewhat good)
swords(just roots in substrate)
i need to get rid of all the dead plants again
dont know what type the snails are, and i cant get a good enough picture
here are pics kind of embarrasing
an attepmt to get a snail pic
i know i need to get rid of the dead plants first, but then what?
ps for the fert schedule theres a thread somewhere for the seachem dosing thing and thats what i dose i was going for a thick background of valls, a nice carpet of dwarf sags, a little bush of anubias, and a nice group of swords on the side
