new to ferts/chemicals/testing, need good recommendations to read up on.
I just spent about 30 min browsing this forum and didn't find much to help amatuers.
I'm setting up my 120 gallon. Going low tech first, No Co2, using AHsupplys 4x55watt kit. I do not want fast growing plants.
what is some basic testing equipment i should purchase? I will be getting a ph tester/monitor with calibration solution for ease of testing.
where can i read up on what chemicals to add, and how to test how much is needed for each one?
or does anyone want to give a basic run down on what to start with in a new tank and basic testing.
I will be starting with a few plants at first. unless its good to start with a lot.
fish wise i will have neon tetras, fancy guppies and clown loaches.
