Woohoo my first nano tank project
Ok, so I just acquired a nano tank with these dimensions 20" length x 10 width x 15" height. After taking into account the gravel and decorations, this should hold 7g.
Filtration: I was going to get an Eheim 2006 or 2008 as a filter, dont want things hanging on the tank or beside it.
Heating: Got a Hydor 100w heater which should be more than enough.
Substrate: Is 2" of substrate enough considering the height of the tank? How much flourite will I need?
Co2: Well since I dont want a lot of things around the tank, I will have to supply co2 in the form of carbon with flourish excel, if I see that I am not managing, than I will look into other ways of getting co2 in the tank.
Lighting: This is the most difficult part, the hood is supplied with an 15w flourescent tube, which results to a bit more than 2w per gallon. Will this be enough to grow meduim light plants? Else I can change the ballast to odno x2 the tube.
Have I missed anything major? Thanks in advance for your help.
