4 gallon finnex deluxe stup questions

First of all hi people, this is my first post here.

I just got my finnex 4 gallon deluxe and I'm trying to plan out my tank. I'm not completely new to planted tanks however my experience is limited to a 37 gallon standard light planted with various kinds of anubias attached to wood, nothing in the sand.

My plan is to use the stock light that comes with the tank (26 watt cf), Eco complete substrate, and no co2. Plants I've been looking at are. As follwos h. Micranthmoides, m. Mattogrossense, m. Umbrusum, windelov, and s. Subbulata.

Any info such as ferts (if required) and how to use them or suggestions of other plants will be much appreciated.

For livestock I plan on rcs and celestial danios.

Thanks in advance for your replies

That's a lot of light to go without co2.

I would dose excel at the very least.

Follow the instructions on the bottle. Something like 1 ml/gal/day

DIY CO2 is also really easy and simple, can't really mess it up.

Good luck!

Congrats on the Finnex. I have one as well (link to journal in signature). I also have RCS and CPDs in mine.

I dose 0.5mL of Excel daily and 1.0mL after the weekly water change.
