46g Bow High Tech

So after a 3 or 4 year absence from aquarium keeping I am getting back into it. I tried a planted tank in the past but never really succeeded due to always being on a budget and trying to find the cheap ways out. This time I'm doing it right and can't wait for the planted forest I have always wanted.

Right now I am just running the new filter on the tank to make sure of no leeks and everything is in good working order.

This is the equipment list of everything purchased thus far:

*46g Bowfront/Stand

*Fluval 306

*Ebo-Jäger heater (looking to upgrade to a hydor inline)

*Current Sun-Dial 36" t5HO 4 bulb (will only be running two bulbs but I got a great deal on this light new)

*50/50 mix fluorite and a very fine gravel that a local LFS sells here (that they actually use in their planted tanks)

*Pressurized co2 set up
- Matheson 3104c reg (from maknwar)
- Post body with clippard mouse solenoid, sms as1200 needle valve (from bettatail)
- 5lb tank
- ***still trying to decide on a diffuser-reactor...***

Also still looking into the best option for dosing frets...

I will update as I go... Thanks for reading!
