Good morning APC!
I'm very new to plants and I plan on introducing new plants to my aquarium. However, my aquarium uses undergravel filter which does a good job and I don't have plans of changing it. I've heard that using undergravel filter (UGF) is not a good idea for plants but I would really like to keep the UFG. So, I need your advise on the best way to introduce and take care of plants taking into consideration the UGF. Thanks very much.
(By the way, does anyone know what's a red wave plant and yellow rose plant?)
My tank - 30 gallon horizontal tank:
4 Featherfin Catfish
8 Sepae Tetra
1 red swordfish
6 albino cory
6 bronze cory
1 Clown Loach
3 Glass Fish
These fishes are quite small, except for the Angels which are about 3 inches.
I have 1 driftwood and 1 decor. Approximately 20% of the right-side of the aquarium are covered with short plants.
I have an undergravel filter with 2 tubes on each of the rear corners. I am using airpumps for both tubes with the air being pushed through a small tube down into the gravel and up a bigger tube. The gravel are small pebbles, not sand.
I've also begun vacuuming the about 30% of the gravel once a week when I change 30% of the H2O.
