| | I would like some confirmation please
Hello, I just finished reading the book by Diana Walstad and I really liked it! Soon I’ll be setting up a 33 gallon El natural tank myself and although I’ve read the book and done a lot of research online, I would like to get some confirmation from some of you if I’m doing it right. I’ll be using 1 inch of regular potting soil and 1 inch of gravel. The plants I’m going to use are:
-Multiple hygrophila species
-some floating plants
The tank has two 14watt lights and I will be using the 5-4-5 time schedule.
Some other questions that I cannot find an answer to are:
- Is it okay to put some wood and stones in the tank or will that cause the soil underneath to go anaerobic?
- Will the tank benefit from some matured tank water from my other tank?
-Do I need to use a power head to distribute the warmth of the heater in the tank?
I’m really hoping someone can answer some of these questions for me and can confirm I will be doing this right. Thanks in advance!
