Converting my 30g fish only..
So I have a 30g tank that's been set up for over a year now. It has 1 Anubia Nana, and a bunch of plastic plants.
I want to turn it into a low tech planted tank. Mainly want to put a bunch of Anubias, some java fern and probably some christmas moss. I have a 55w light strip for the tank, and I also have a 20w light strip.
For the above planned plants and size of tank, should I use the 55w light strip, or would that be too much light? Also.. do I NEED a special substrate? I'm trying to keep it as low budget as possible. Currently it has just gravel, but there is a small amount of flourite mixed in (gravel came from a friend who had a planted tank)
Oh, I also currently have a power filter w/ biowheel for filtration.. is that going to be an issue?
Suggestions and comments appreciated.
