My first attempt- Planted tank -need advice

Postby sandip1200 » Sun May 27, 2018 6:21 am

Hi everyone

This is my first attempt of planted tank. The size of the tank is 4ft-18"-18". This is with CO2 setup. I am using bottled water for my tank. I am observing that the TDS level of my tank is currently 150ppm. Could you please confirm whether this is harmful for my tank or not. Currently this is the 4th week running. Please also advise when can I put fishes or shrimps in this tank. I have attached some pics of my tank.

In my view TDS of 150 is ok, my tank is having much more than that no issues.
Once your tank is stabilized very well, you can introduce shrimps.

Thanks for reply. I am currently facing a problem. My tank water became cloddish for last few days and unable to view inside it. There are 2 mollies and 2 guppies for algae eating. Can anybody suggests whether it is a algae bloom or bacteria bloom. Please also advise how to clean. One day before I changed 50% water of my tank. However this problem has not stopped.

cloudish white - bacterial blook
cloudish green - algae bloom

If it is white it will settle in some days, if it is green you will need to something more along with constant water changes and light-outs.

Please share some pics so that we can judge better. Also exactly how many days has it been?
