Hey PTForum! This is my first time doing a rimless with a predrilled hole. I need some advice on setting up the intake (it looks really makeshift right now) and how to get a carpet plant growing. I have the layout and an idea of where the seiryu and manzanitas going to be. I think a canister filter for this size is pretty overkill but unless I can plug that hole it's my only choice. As you can see the outflow tubing is really shoddy.
I'm thinking about HC and glosso, whichever one I can get my hands on. I want to start emersed because I don't have a C02 tank. right now it's all dirt but i want to cap it with white sand eventually :] where do I go from here?
