My 56 gallon planted tank build
Thanks for stopping by.
I have had hopes of starting a planted tank for some time and have been putting together everything needed for start up as budget allows.
So far I have:
Tank and Stand:
-56 gallon (36" by 18" by 20") rimless starphire tank,
-powder coated steel stand with plans of getting a stand skin done.
-Fluval 406 canister filter
-ADA Amazonia soil and power sand
-plan to purchase a 36" buildmyLed showtank fixture
mounted directly on the tank with 90 degree beam angle.
-plan to purchase from GLA, the Supreme CO2 Regulator with Ideal needle valve.
-10 pound tank
Plans for plants include:
-Ludwigia repens or similar
-undecided but open for suggestions for what would look great between foreground and background.
-either Hemianthus callitrichoides or glossostigma
Thats it for now

Re: My 56 gallon planted tank build
I Decided today to go with 2 Kessil Amazon Sun LED lights instead of the BuildMyLed fixture.
I have been very interested in the Kessil lights for some time. Based on a lot of research the Kessil lights seem to me the way to go.
There was a small price drop I noticed very recently and ordered them from Pets and Ponds here in Canada (Great to deal with).
I will take pics of them set up when I get them.
Next on the list is
Supreme CO2 regulator from GLA.
