Just bought an Edge, and I have questions
I just bought an Edge tank. I have had about 3 salt water tanks and got this for my daughter when I realized she couldn't reach in and mess with the fish! Great design.
The last freshwater tank I had was 20 years ago, so I have a few questions. I am most drawn to minimalist setups with HC and 3 rocks with some neons, and a couple shrimp. This is what I want to do, but I am not sure I am up for the HC challenge with an Edge.
How hard is maintenance for HC? And more specifically in an Edge? Is CO2 required, or can it be done without CO2 in an Edge? How expensive are CO2 setups? Do I need to upgrade the lighting to an MR11?
The lady at the fish store was telling me I couldn't do HC, but there was a decent alternative. What are the alternatives for HC?
