| | plants & crystal red shrimps CARE?? (co2, flourish, dried/freeze food, etc...)
So now that my low tech tank is dirt, planted & shrimps (crs/rcs); where do i go from here? I did months & tons of research before getting into this but always got different answer. Hopefully you guys can help clears up all these information flying around. thks in advance
! Questions: 1. Plants will get all the nutrients from the soil/dirt, so no needs for chemical like fert, co2, etc... With the exception of having fish & shrimp to replenish it (by their poo & pee). Dirt will also last up to 10yrs?
2. If question one is false, should i use Seachem flourish, topfin plant food, or API c02 booster (if not then what good?). I heard shrimp are sensitive and can die from chemical like this!?
3. What do these dang shrimps eat? Some say; fish flake, bloodworm, dried shrimp, and other say; spinach, dries sun leaf (any?), algae waffle, or nothing but the plant in your tank?
