Hi! I am thinking of getting one of these tanks and I love the way you put your tank together. Could you share what filter and lights you use and any other start off tips? Also which plants are working for you in this tank. Thank you!

LoriBerry Here is an update on my 12g rimless. Plants are starting to grow in nicely. I did have a problem dialing in the Co2 for a while, it was either too high or too low and I just couldn't seem to get it just right. Seems to be ok now, but I am sure as the plants grow it will need to be adjusted again.

Reeferjohn What filter is everyone running on their 12L? Need to upgrade my sunsun for something with higher flow and was thinking the 2213. Will this be adequate for the length of these tanks or should I upsize?

Jardiamj I almost forgot, here is a link to my 12G Long Tank Journal:

This is what it looks like at the moment:

Soon, I'll be adding a Finnex PX-360 filter on the other side of the tank.

LoriBerry Hi, my name is Lori and after 15 years of having a reef aquarium I have decided to jump into a planted tank arena. I decided to start small and this 12 gallon long tank immediately caught my attention at our local fish store. It has been up and running for about a month and I just add the neon tetras, red and blue ornamental shrimp and a few snails. I did quite a bit of research before setting up the tank and this website was a great help. Thanks for all the great information! Please feel free to critique and give suggestions as I still have so much to learn.

Jardiamj Hi guys! My wife got me a Mr. Aqua 12 G Long for Christmas. I've been thinking and researching on what substrate, lighting, filter and heater to use.
I plan on stocking it with some Cristal Red Shrimps and some Otos.

I want to do mostly carpeting with rocks, this will be my first time using a carpeting plant so I'll be using Micranthemun Monte Carlo since it was recommended to me as an easy carpeting plant. My plan is to do a Dry Start and I was thinking on using ADA Amazonia Aquasoil.

For lighting I think I'll go with a Finnex Stingray. Would this give me medium light?

For filter I was thinking about using the Finnex px-360. What do you think about this filter?

For heating I'm thinking about the hydor inline filter. Is there any other unobstrusive heater out there?

Do you guys have any suggestions or advice before I pull the trigger on this setup?

Hi the grey intank device is just a Eheim 350 Surface skimmer so not a filter, I am running a external canister filter.

I had 12+ in mines once. Good filtration and they should be okay because they don't get overly large that's the plus about them.
