Finally got my tanks up and running.
Summary of the approach I've taken so far:
Water: I've been using pure RO/DI water, I don't plan on adding any livestock for some time and so far it has worked out great. I've got some GLA GH booster handy for when I do get started thinking about livestock. Currently GH and KH are at 1. I doubt any fish on the nano list can survive that, but it would be nice if I didn't have to mess with GH.
First 2 days: 75%
Next 5 days: 50%
Next 14 days: 50% every other day.
Afterwards: 2x weekly 50%
Eheim 2213, media basket removed (using Eheim lattice screens, one on top and one on the bottom).
1.5 months: Eheim bio rings + 2L active matrix carbon
1.5-3 months: Eheim bio rings + Seachem active matrix
After 3 months: All Seachem active matrix
Using only tissue cultured plants, the experience has been great so far. Great growth, no risk of parasites, algae or snails.
