    You wouldn't need to cycle it, you could use the existing media for a seeded kickstart.

    Quite a few parts in Europe any washed up seaweeed was used as fertilizer. Load of NPK right there with a good amount of micros and it breaks down easily.

    Pretty good. They're not very good with the higher temperatures most people prefer in their aquariums, more a temperate species really.

    NO! Rams like their water soft, neutral at most. Shellies want it hard. They also get rather territorial when breeding which could be another issue.


    Shellies will do well with escargot shells....

    Teething is one possibility but an unlikely one. You'd find the kid a touch feverish, producing very awful diapers and crying in pain.

    Much more likely is something growing and changing in the...

    I think it also depends a lot on how much ambient light a tank gets. Low light plants in a room that gets a lot of light is a different matter than medium lights in a very dark room.

    Lights on a timer is a must for a planted tank I'd say. Fish can do a week or so without food, well a lot of species can. If you do have a reliable person that can feed them have him/her come in...

    I'd get rid of the angel aaand the rio tetra and see about getting a few more cories and white skirts. I'd also consider restyling the tank to get sand for the cories at least.

    Just my 2 cents.
