I know I am asking a lot of questions.
I figure a few weeks of questions here will prevent a year of bad tanks later on.
At first I considered 20gallons, then an Aqueon Evolve, until the prospect of a noisy pump scotched that. A 7.9 Fluval made sense until again, the filter was said to be lousy.
If I get a regular 10g.
Can I get away with an inch of MGOPM (UN
washed) + 1" of sand.
A 10g is only 10" high so I do not want to go deeper.
In fact I would go with 3/4" of both, if could get away with it.
I hate gravel; but I do not want methane gas buildup that comes with sand to happen.
I was thinking of using Petco WHITE SAND
I would have a glass cover. 30 Aquaclear, and a 100W heater, for emergency heating. We have a cool room.
I was planning on using the crappy plastic covers with 2 CFL bulbs.
But is 3/4", 3/4" okay?
Or is sand totally out or the question?
