I have been looking at all of your journals on here and I thought I would start one. I got the 20g long at petco $ per gallon sale. The first tank I had was a 10g with blue gravel and a couple plants from petco. BTW, the only truly aquatic plants in petco are the amazon swords and the bulbs in packages. Im planning on going medium to heavy planted tank.
With this tank I plan on putting more effort and cash into it.
My plans include:
-Eco-complete or other similar substrate
-HOB filter (no place for canister)
-2 to 3 watts per gallon light
- glass cover
Would this setup be good? What light would you recommend (I was thinking t5 maybe)?
I just setup my 20g long yesterday. Petco sale as well. I am running a AC20 and I am using a dual T5 NO(normal output) fixture. If you are planning on doing T5 NO, the fixture in the link below is a good one.
