A really low budget. I'm a college student just lookin for a hobby. I don't have a co2 system but I do have a air wall along the back if the tank to try an help. Not sure how good that is doing. I do have a t5 lighting with the white and pink lighting. The plants I have in there now are growing rapidly. Not to sure which ones they are tho. I am open to suggestions as I am trying to learn and get better.
