29 g Set up advice
Hello everyone, I just bought a 29 gallon from Petco as I could not pass up the dollar per gallon sale! The plans for this tank are to create a planted community tank. I am hoping I can list some of the equipment I am planning on buying just to double check I am on the right track. Mostly my concern is with the filter and lights This is what I plan on buying.
Coralife Aqualight T5 Freshwater Dual Lamp Fixture
My plant list is mostly going to be Crypts I think but sometimes I am not sure if I want to go more high tech. Would this light be classified as high or low light over a 29 g? I have a Aquatec CO2 fixture in my closet I could use if I decide for higher light but I dont want to battle annoying algae on any slow growing plants if it is high light.
My final question is regarding substrate. I definitely am interested in getting some dwarf cories but have heard they dont like ecocomplete as it hurts their mouths? What would be a good substrate choice? I was thinking of using Miracle grow under ecocomplete but if there is a better choice please let me know.
