| | Planted without fish - fertilization
I'm trying to maintain a tank using Walstad method.
The 120l tank has an industrialized substrate (mBreda Amazonia) and gravel. The water was soo soft, so I added Seachem Equilibrium to up GH (now it's not soo soft, maybe I need a little more).
At the moment, there are no fishies in the tank, just plants (about 20 species) and just a little small snails (that came with the plants).
Even in a soft water, the plants are growing (slowly). I've increased the GH just a few days ago, so I coudn't observe the results of that.
My question is related to fertilization. Fish food is a way to "fertilizate" the plants. Do you recommend to add fish food for plant nutrition in this case, even without fishies?
(sorry about my poor english)
