    Question Brand new to planted tanks!!


    1 Not allowed!
    Hey everyone!! I picked this aquarium up Friday off of craigslist, it is a 3-5 gallon plexiglass planted tank, mainly got it because I wanted the plants and the 20-25 rili shrimp. It also came with the fancy guppy. I couldn't pass up the deal. Anyways I am brand new to plants, the tank has perfect water and everything looks great. Is there any advice a "newbie" like me needs to be successful with the plants. I know the plant in the front in moneywort but Im not sure about the plant right under the guppy it had bigger leaves and a think stem. Anyways thanks in advance.

    Watch your parameters. And don't over feed. It looks like a good set up. And here it comes, shrimp poop a lot. Watch the plants but you should not have to add fertilizer to this tank. And remember to change out about two gallons of water weekly.
