How many Goldfish

  1. Hello all! Forgive me this post is rather lengthy and I thank you for your patience. My girlfriend and I would like to put more plants in our aquarium. Presently, there is an Anubis plant that took root to a lava rock. I think I'm going to put more anubis to the same rock to make it more colorful. I have a few questions. Anyone use CO2? I looked online and it seems really expensive, (my aquarium is 56 gallons). I'm hesitant about it and DIY pumps because if I forget to check the levels one day, I could find my fish dead. I don't want that. I also have heard of using dry fertilzer instead of the liquid stuff...what!? Ideally, I would like to have plants that can root themselves into rocks, ike lava rocks so that I can move them and thus creating a more natural look. I don't trust driftwood because of rotting etc. I am open to suggestions. What plants are suited to this? As far as lights go, I don't recall what kind of lights I have in there, they are the t5's that's all I remember and they weren't cheap. I was also wondering about oxygen consumption at night, of both the plants and the fish. Anyone have problems with this? Also, I have a deeper tank would you recommend installing a power head for circulation? The bubble wand seemed to kinda stress the fish out (I think) but maybe I'm just paranoid. I am totally willing to revisit it though if necessary. Where do you get your plants? What plants do you have in your tank, what plants didn't work for you? (I realize this will vary from tank to tank in some degree) How do you have them secured in your tank? What mistakes have you made in the past and: what did you learn/changes did you make? When do you prune your plants? Do you wash the algae off your leaves? Do you use any plant food i.e from Seachem? Do you take your goldfish to the beach with you? (I'm kidding, if you've read this far - give yourself a hug from me and thank you) Anything else or advice you'd like to share?
