Fresh Slaw

This is my first freshwater planted aquarium (dedicated to plants).

I have been keeping tanks for the past 40 years starting in freshwater then moving to saltwater. I currently run four tanks including this one. The others are salt reef tanks.

Here is a pic of my new setup:

It is a 2 foot cube with sump. I have used Caribsea eco complete and stuck quite a few Seachem root tabs in there.

Return Pump: Eheim compact 2000
In tank flow: Tunze nano stream
Heater: Ebo Jaeger 150w
CO2: Sera reactor on a solenoid control.
Lighting: Vertex Illumina 300-260. 90% white, 65% blue, 40% royal blue. Ramping up from 10am and down from 8pm.

PH: 6.8 evening, 8 morning
dKH: around 5

Top off with RODI

10% water changes a week with tap water treated with prime.

Seachem Iron supplement with water changes.

Tetras and whiptail catfish will be the only livestock.
