Did you get answers? If not, please provide as much of the following as possible:

- Light (make & model): ideally, PAR and PUR reading at the substrate and photoperiod?
- CO2 setup (if any) and, if you inject CO2, what is the CO2 ppm level and how is it measured?
- Current NO3, PO4, GH, KH, pH and TDS readings and which test kits are used for each?
- What you are dosing (product and quantity) and how often?
- Substrate type and how long has it been in place?
- What is your filter setup?
- Cleaning regimen (filter and water change frequency and amount)?
- Circulation: surface rippling and are all plants gently moving from top to bottom?
- What is your water source and do you use a water softener?

Hi thanks for your time. I’m currently planning at the moment have brought a fluval Roma 125 (I know not the best tank for a scape but I shall make it work). I have also just brought an Oase external filter I went for an oversized one. I’ve been reading up on plants and trying to plan out what I’m going to put in. My biggest query was substrate I really wanted to have sand but have been told beat to have gravel with an aqua soil. I haven’t purchased any substrate as of yet. If you can recommend one to look at that would be grate. I will be using c02 once Setup. I would like to take it slowly and read some more before choosing c02 set up that’s in my budget.
