Re: Stocking 100g (long) planted tank

I'm aware and its a good list all my plants were chosen off this list. But it and all the other lists I've found on the Internet (wet web media and fish forum) seem to end by saying salt is a detriment to plants in general be sure your dosing and co2 are spot on.
