Just set up a 10 gallon w/pics to follow
After many fail attempts of trying to do a moss tank I decided to try something different. I bought a 10 gallon aquarium and decided to try low tech. Heres my set up so far with pics to come. I'm just waiting for the water to clear up a bit.
10 gallon aquarium with a 15 watt strip light. I'm gonna pick up a 6500k bulb today. Specificaly a Life 2 glo bulb.
Penguin 150 hob filter w/ bio wheel. Flourite for a substrate.
I bought a bunch of plants they were all potted. I spent $40 on just plants. I bought 2 bronze wendtii, 2 red wendtii, 1 cryp. lutea, 1 anubias nana, 1 hyrophilia kompact.
The Hygro was listed as medium light so I don't know if it will make it in my set up. The guy at the pet shop said it might and it was in a low light set up so I figured I'd give it a try.
After removing all the plants from thier pots there is a lot of stuff floating around in my tank. I'm hoping the filter catches most of it and I'll clean it in the morning.
When removing the plants from thier pots how much of the pot substrate should I remove? I tried to get most of it but some I couldn't get to without tearing the roots so I left some. Is it ok to do this?
