First tank (12" cube) after years of admiring.
Hey Planted Users!
So I have finally gotten the chance to build my own planted tank after years of oogling at pictures of tanks. I have done extensive research and always find myself getting the best information from here so why not share the love and start my first nano journal! I built a kit, changed it about 50 times then finally impulse ordered the Fluval Flora. The next day I found a LFC in NYC that is fantastic and they helped me create my original plan and helped me with the price a lot. So my Flora showed up today and is getting shipped right back and I couldnt be more excited to actually have my cube.
So here is what I got for a set up:
Tank: 7.5 gal 12x12x12 rimless cube
Lights: 1x Innovatice Marine LED 12' 10k (plan on getting a second next)
Filter: Aquaclear 20
Heater: I cannot think of the name but it is a 4" heater that holds at 78
Co2: Fluval mini pressurized 20g (plan to upgrade to a larger kit or DIY eventually)
Substrate: Fluval Stratum
Plants: Getting them on Tuesday but going dwarf tear carpet, dwarf hairgrass, and 2 other medium/small stemmed plants I cannot remember the name of currently.
So this is where Im at today for a quick set up and Im going to take the next 2-3 days tweaking it and perfecting it before planting Tuesday! Let me know your thoughts!
