I just need some direction. I know what I wanna do, but I don't know exactly how to do it. So what should my steps be? Like starting with lighting I have 2 General Electric 13 watt ( 60 watt incandescent replacement bulbs) 6500k bulbs(pic below)? Is that considered high light or low light or what ? Soil what do I use? I have been looking at this at Home-Depot (pic below)? Fertilizer what will be necessary just the Sea-Chem Flourish Excel? Plants are those plants okay for this type of tank, lighting, and treatment? Filtration I am planning on running a Aquaclear50 (250gph) on it with no carbon packs (as it strips organic carbon out) is this okay or to much? Heating I have a Tetra 5-15g heater, it keeps water at a pretty consistant 75. Is this okay? Livestock, I want to keep A pair of Bollivian Rams or German Blue Rams, 6 Panda Corys, 1 Bristle Nose Pleco, and a few Crystal Red Shrimp. Would these be okay together, and with the plants? I have a bunch more questions but these are the pressing ones at the moment.
