40 Gallon Breeder or a 55 Gallon?
I'm planning on doing a low tech tank, either a 40 breeder or a 55 gallon with mainly Congo Tetras. Just a giant school of them. Not sure how many will fit in either size tank comfortably. I also thought of adding a pair of German Blue rams as well. I'm thinking of going with the 40 gallon breeder, I feel it gives you more room for aquascaping and not such a PITA to get into when you have short arms like I do!
My main question is lighting. I wanted it to be a Medium Light tank, I don't want to have to do CO2 but I want to be able to gross some decent plants.
What kind of lighting would you all suggest?
Also substrate, I hear good things about Fluorite and Eco Complete? Any preference?
