I'm not 100% sure what all is in (or not in) the substrate. But I have the same stuff (aquariumplants.com plant substrate) and although all my other plants perform great in it, my swords suffer unless I supplement them with a couple root tabs beneath them. (And I dose liquid ferts using EI method.)about the root tabs, i was under the impression that this soilmaster select had all the nutrients my plants would need (minus dry ferts). did i misunderstand this?
thanks! i feed them chiclid gold pellets everyday, and tilapia filets, shrimp, scallops, etc about 3 times a week. i also have a breeding pair on convicts, and i release about 200 juvies that are 3/4-1" every few months so they pick those off gradually as well.Very nice looking fish and tank! What are you feeding them and how often?
