180 L Planted Aquarium Journal

Through building and maintaining beautiful nature aquaria people re-learn the intricate connections between forms of life, plants, fish, microorganism and humans. Riches and beauty come from harmony, from balance. Aquaria are great teachers of this truth. Takashi Amano


The 36th day

Its been 5 days since some of my "removed" fish showed signs of sickness. There are no signs that the rest of the inhabitants are affected. They are all eating readily & shoaling together. Plants are thriving and they are showing no signs of , nutrient or trace elements, deficiency.
I will start adding liquid fertiliser at the end of March. It is probably gonna be the Tropica Master Grow that has no phosphates. In a next few days I will add some aquarium peat to the filter. It is a good addition to a planted tank that has Tetras, Angels, Otos, SAE & Amano shrimps. So far so good.
