i understand that. thats why im asking questions. i bought my tank recently and built a little light canopy. ill post pics onces its up. it'll be bare at first tho. i have just a little experience with my brother's tanks, and he helps me a bit too. but this the the first planted tank in the household and i wanted it right.
as to roberts post. i understand. so most of the micro and macro nutrients will be supplied by the substrate, the water, and my fish?
