with the unfortunate demise of a few neonate lizards i had "adopted", iv decided to turn there terrarium into an aquarium. as with most of my terrariums, i would like to make it planted with live plants. it is only a 5.5 gallon, so i know my choices of animals and plants are limited so as not to overcrowd. the books i have said that i could get away with some dwarf frogs (1 or 2) an oto catfish or cory cat, and a small school of danios and/ or guppies.
i have a filter and hood and all that, and my main question is if anyone has any info on keeping the live plants alive. with my terrariums i did not use fertilizer, so for the first while i lost alot of the live plants untill the animal matter and decaying plant matter fertilized the soil and now everything is doing pretty good.
i was wondering if it is safe to use aquatic fertilizer with the frogs, i work in a petstore so acquiring whatever would be no problem. my other question is substrate. some resources suggest sand, others gravel, and others a mixture of the two. i would like to just use gravel if possible, it seems easier to keep clean.
any info or experiences would be appreciated, thanks.
