Hi all,

If my tank plant is without any soil, do i need to change it every month ?
i notice after 1-2 months the plant will slowly aged, yellow and wither..
is it normal ?
need to consider are all the conditions necessary for it to grow are there or not.

Next is what plants is that.

You grow plants not keep replacing. Some stems plants can grow floating. Some plants like Anubias, moss, etc no need soil.

What plants do you have?
ever had marimo moss ball, but very pathetic, the fish keep bite it and it stuck into the filter ...

usually i just buy what the market LFS had when i happen to buy..
java fern, water weeds, etc ( idk the name )
thing is.. none can survive long.. usually 3 months max ?
is the algae on the leaves contribute to it's dying ?
it's a goldfish tank btw.. had it for soon to be 2 years..
filter cleaning and water change is once a week..
water treated with conditioner and a very little of aquarium salt..

These packets of fishes, have few variations, like guppy, mollies, small frogs right? If so, they are reared and sold as feeder to the big fishes. Actually I feel they are good enough for causal rear too if one doesn't mind they don't look as pretty.

Most likely those are feeders...sometimes those abit defect they will jsut pack as feeders...will see platys mollies...guppies...

Those to feed monster fish , just pour whole pack in...then..1 week no need feed



If goldfish..then u see the whole tank sparkle...
