Well I thought about dry-scaping it but ill just do that on my bigger tank , I was too anxious to get back in this hobby again ^^ .But anyway I picked up a basic 10gallon with hood from my local store and bought 2x23w 6700k Compact fluorescent bulbs (46w total).Recently I ordered a nice piece of drift wood that will actually work well with a nano-tree setup which I may attempt for my first time .. I am in the process of purchasing a 10lb. C02 tank and a regulator.. and then planning out what plants to get. But here is the pics nice and cloudy.
Just bought more floramax today .. the tank is still cloudy I'll post pics asap.I am looking up which Co2 regulator to purchase ... I don't want to spend over 100$ on a regulator at the moment, I can always upgrade later.Is this one good enough for a beginner regulator ? Milwaukee MA957 CO2 Regulator.I will purchase a tank as soon as I figure out which regulator to get.Also I was thinking about using the new atomic Co2 inline diffuser but I am not sure if the Zoomed 501 can handle it lol.Let me know what you guys think.. thanks.
You are right, I thought I could pass with it but once I had it installed I was like "eh".I am used to having more flow than needed which is nice , so I think im going to purchase an Enheim in the near future.
i would swing the driftwood with a 180 turn. when you place the driftwood that way, it automatically causes the other half of the tank to be isolated and closed off....if you place it the other way, it opens up the tank, and gives the tank a natural flow.
i would also move it back further so that its base is adjacent to where the most left rock ends (part of the rule of 3rds)....try it out, if you like it keep it, if you dont, go back to what you had before. more wood and more rocks!
Ok the lily pipes from Aquaticmagic came in today ^^ ! And then I went to the store and picked up Java fern and an anubias , and upgraded my cheapo hood with some mylar.Also I ordered a milwaukee Ma957 Co2 regulator and I will buy a 10lb. tank next week along with a drop checker and an atomic co2 diffuser.
any suggestions on what carpet bed I should use? I am thinking of using HC? I want to have some red plants behind green ones in the backround..
Another thing on my mind is what type of backround to use ? I have been hearing about these "sticky" backrounds that look alot clearer ? Was thinking black or grey?
