New 60 Gallon Planted Low Tech
I am setting up a new low-light low tech setup. I have a 60 gallon tank with two 40 watt bulbs. Sitting around 1.3 watts/gallon. I am currently cycling the tank and it has nothing in it but gravel. I am running two Aqua Clear 70's.
I have had two tanks in the past and hoping to pull some experience from those.
At this time I am thinking of using some root tab product (I heard rootmedic was good, but it appears they are no longer around after searching through the forums), does anyone have suggestions? I will also be using Seachem's Equilibrium as I have quite soft water - roughly 1.3 dH of General Hardness.
Finally I hope to only have to perform smaller water changes as to not disrupt CO2 levels. I have read that water changes will introduce CO2 back into the water, and if you aren't doing a CO2 setup, you will not allow plants to adapt to lower CO2 levels. Apparently algae will adapt faster.
Thoughts on all this?
I am going to keep the post updated with pics.
