First Planted Tank
Sorry for long post in advance :-)
Hey guys my name is Chris and i have been reading lots of post on this forum for about a month or so deciding if i wanted to give my hand a try at it and well yesterday i pulled the trigger and got a tank. :-) After reading lots of different post and looking at endless amounts of websites and videos i'm still a little confused on a few things.
First substrate, i purchased all my ferts like Tourmaline BC, Clear Super, Bacter 100, PenacP and also have my ADA Amazonia aqua soil. Now the part that i'm stuck on is am i going to need Power Sand for my bottom layer before i add my aqua soil? Seen people say yes people say no now i'm not sure.
As far as what i'm going to do with my tank i'm going to try and do a Carpet style setup with a Bonsai Driftwood as main focal point. The plant i decided to go with is going to be Micranthemum 'Monte Carlo for floor coverage and riccardia chamedryfolia for the branches on my Bonsai.
So with all that being said i would love to get everyone's input on this since like i said this is my first planted tank and i'm sure many people on here have tons of experience.
