Fluval Edge 46l (12 US Gal) Journal

Hi Everyone.
So, here is the start of my new journal.
I just ordered:
Fluval edge 46l (12 us gal), gloss black
Fluval edge heater, thermometer, algae magnet
4kg of Fluval Plant Stratum
Extra BioMax
Seachem Matrix
Seachem Stabiliy

Everything should arrive this week.
I plan to modify the Filter slightly – mechanical filtration will be provided by the prefilter sponge, therefore I plan to fill the filter with Seahem matrix and bio max, as much of both as I can cram in there! I’ll just drop the carbon ‘pillow’ on the top and will most likely only use it for the first week or two.

Planting will be simple – I want to grow one or two Amazon swords in the middle of the tank, the idea being that they will really fill out and create quite a dramatic scene... around the bottom I’ll use crypts and moss. As crypts and swords are heavy root feeders, I may use an under-substrate layer.

Stocking: Unsure. Small tetras, some otto’s and maybe one or two platies or dwarf cichlids (curviceps, maybe?)

Not sure If I'll use C02 or Excel...

That's it for now... wish me luck
