Bartonís 7g UN systems nano

Hello! This is my first post on the forum. Iíve kept nano reefs for years and this is my first planted tank in about 10 years. Ill update the post with all equipment, plants and livestock as I go. Any tips and feedback will be appreciated. Iím not done adding plants. My filtration is the ehiem 1211 with lily pipes. No CO2 as of now. I am awaiting delivery of ThriveS all in one fert.

Nice setup. How are you going to keep the substrates apart though?

Thanks. I used some notecards to keep the sand and substrate separate when I put them. Nothing keeping them apart now lol

Setup my CO2 system. Got it running at 1 bubble every 2 seconds for now. I should have my plant order in soon. I cut out part of this organizer to keep everything concealed.

I found it interesting that your co2 tank is horizontal and not releasing liquid co2. I had to look into it a little and it seems that some tanks do have internal "expander tubes" or "siphon tubes" that allow for horizontal use! I had no idea... Apparently home brewers run their tanks horizontally quite often with no liquid released. Learned something new today. Well actually, I feel like I learn something new most days from this forum but this one really surprised me. I was totally convinced vertical was the only way to go up to about 20 minutes ago

92% of all statistics are made up on the spot.
