Am I going to need CO2? Ferts?
Good evening folks, I have a 55g tank, has 96 watts of t8 lighting. The tank has primarily Barb's in it and a few Black Skirt Tetras. I am also going to be adding some inverts. I ordered a 24 plant variety pack to plant the tank with. I don't want a jungle, or heavily planted tank. I just need to have something more attractive to look at. Should I be looking at getting CO2? I plan on using Total substrate pellets for fertilizer, should I be using something else in addition? How often should I use them?
Thanks, I really appreciate any input.
