Ok, so I will buy the organic soil. I'm thinking of a thick bottom layer for longer lasting root feeding and then capping it with something, IDK what yet.
I saw this lamp on another thread here http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...7GGEB892QY2H86
It's 3000k, 4.2 Watt LED. Great look to it, but I'm afraid it may be too yellow. I want to stay away from bulky lights because once again, this is in my living room and would love to please my fiancé with this project.
Are the planted bulbs a good idea? I've used them before and loved them once they grew out. What about fish? I'm not sure about the shrimp thing just yet, no betta for sure. I guess that leaves me with danios and neons maybe?
