    Hi A week in the mature filter should do it for the sponges.Also mature leaf litter and presoaked wood will have bacterial colonies already established.

    6ft Shallow "ish" tank

    Hi I will personally try to increase plant mass first before going the CO2 route as I didn't see any CO2 demanding plans on your list in previous posts.The tank is relatively new and not very densely planted. Its early days yet and you haven't really given it a chance. Some floating plants...

    Tips for planting in a tank full of water

    Hi and welcome to the community. If this is the 23l tank from your other post I will suggest to swap the Amano shrimp for Cherry shrimp.Amanos get quite large and need a roomier tank(I always had problems with them escaping smaller tanks than 60l in volume) You are correct about the Aponogeton...

    The Nymph's Spring (EA900)
