Hey! I'm back after awhile of working, I had a 30g , and got alot of information for it from here. After working awhile with that and doing some stuff with my 55, Ive decided to do a new aquarium, not sure on fish yet, but a good planted tank definatly. Unlike the 30 Im starting from scratch and doing this one perfect.(hopefully) Any advice/input/ideas are welcome. Here goes:
Ive heard SO MUCH good stuff about Eheim I finally decided to get the 2213, Its pretty much my first real canister filter. was a snap to set up and its running nice and quiet. so far I love it.
I have a 192 watt aqualight on the way , 2x96w freshwater version and Im probally going to order a moonlight pretty soon cause they are just plain nifty.
As far as C02 goes, Ill probally set up DIY with hagen ladders cause I already have 2 ladders and dont want to learn/spend money on an automated pressurized system, it seems like to much trouble- maybe later down the road
I started out using some flourite as a base for substrate, then covered it with pea gravel from lowes so I didnt have to blow tons of money on rock.
Heres a picture of the thing as Im working on it
Heres a picture of it filled and ready to rock (not really, but we can act like it is ready)
