New 75. Right equipment?
Finally taking the plunge and building my first planted tank. This forum has been an excellent resource and I'd like a second set of eyes before I start placing orders.
The plan is to start out medium light with fairly hardy plants but still have room to grow if I want to up the light output and try a more demanding scape.
