Thanks for the welcome, With all the lessons learned (the hard way) with the reef tank I want to do a little more pre-education this time.
lauralee - this may be a dumb question but, what and where are the "stickies". I might be looking right at them but don't see them.
Here's the basic concept so far -
Tank - I have a 3' x 3' area so a cube, round, 1/2 round or octagon shape
Design - going for a zen type design...not heavily planted or stocked
Filtration - canister filter..likely eheim with spray bar (inline heating)
Lighting -due to tank shape may have to be a hanging pendant type..MH?? Also, want lighting to be able to handle any changes in my plant selection.
Co2 system - assume..due to low planting and high light will need to supplement CO2??
Location -Tank will be in a sum room but in the darkest corner with no direct sunlight.
Is this basic concept making sense?
