Starting a 10 gallon, need advice
I'm starting a 10 gallon, fairly low tech planted tank, and need some advice from people with experience on what equipment and combination's worked the best. I won't be doing CO2, but I will be dosing flourish excel. I want to do T5 lighting and I am looking at a T5 aqualight 24" with 2 14 watt bulbs, or maybe a NOVA Extreme 24" 2x24 watt.
For soil I was looking at eco complete or ADA soil. An employee at a LFS told me that eco complete lost a lot of it's nutrients pretty early and that ADA was better for long term plant growth.
If you could tell me your experience or opinion with these products I would appreciate it!
