Get some KNO3 "Potassium Nitrate". Look into EI dosing to find charts that will tell you how much to use per volume to get the ppm you are shooting for.

You would be surprised with how strong a floor (even up stairs) is. A load bearing wall is meant to be a part of holding up the entire rest of the building. 600lbs is peanuts. I have a friend with a...

You have a 16.5 hour light cycle. 8 is good in a full planted established planted tank. I would start the ferts, CO2, and cut light back to 6 hrs to start.

Not ever growing HC I can't say that it won't carpet well in an 18" tank without CO2 and high light but from what I have read it seems unlikely. Dwarf sag is an easy grower and I like the look of it...

Typically you don't put Anubias into the substrate anyways. They will do just as well tied to something in a BB tank.
