Arrie's 17g Build

So i would first like to say this is going to be a slow build
i have a 40g breeder planted set up at the moment but its failing horribly so i wanted to try something new and better.

Here is the list of parts to start the new tank all from
ADA

The co2 system isnt right i just added it for price since the one i want is out of stock.


So am i missing anything? Will this build work? Thought?

Thanks im new to this side of aquariums i do have reef tanks aswell.

Wow that is an envy worthy list! The only thing I think you may reconsider is the 1 bag of aqua soil. You may want some more for shaping purposes

Ya if you worried about budget, you could scale back on the filter and get an eheim or something else less expensive. Dont skimp on the lighting, something dimmable would be great as you can have a little extra then dim it back.

What are your plans for a stand?
