Hello everyone! As many may know, I've been planning on setting up a planted tank for quite some time now, and due to certain limitations, it fell through. Finally, I have begun the process, and will most likely have the aquarium up and running no later than december.
I am going to be aiming for an ADA style scape, with some decent gear...
-AGA 29g 30x12x18
-Coralife 2x65w Power Compact
-Rena Filstar xP3
-Pressurized CO2 5lb cylinder, solenoid, Rhinox 2000, ect
-2 liters of Powersand Special S
-12 liters of Aquasoil Amazonia I or II (also need opinions)
-Rex Griggs or Greg Watson ferts (EI method)
This will be my first high light planted tank, and I realize how difficult it might be, so I've really taken my time in terms of research to make sure everything is right. I hope that this goes along well, and I'm already excited for opinions and thoughts from all of you here on the boards. The plants that I'm thinking about as of now consist of...
-Eleocharis montevidensis (Giant Hairgrass)
-LOTS of HC
And the Hardscape right now, consists of some sand blasted Malaysian wood...
As of now, the hardscape, and my choice of filter, is what I need some opinions on. The hardscape I'm liking right now is on page 2, I accidently deleted all the photos from my host... I'g going to use this one, moved over to the right a bit...
I'm planning to cover a decent amount of the driftwood with taiwan or peacock moss, then put some Cyperus Helferi or stem plants behind them, and fill in the foregrounds with a carpet of HC. Sorry about the picture/temp. setup, its very mundane. I would actually use the tank, but it is still home to my low tech fish aquarium. All opinions and criticism are more than welcomed!! Thanks!
