My planted nano.

Hello everyone. I havn't kept fish for a while so here we go.. Again. I have an aquael classic 40. I have upgraded to a boyu 3x8w light, tmc heater and an internal filter rated at 300lph with spray bar. Substrate is fluval stratum. Hardscape is mini landscape rock. The plants, which are on there way are hairgrass as a foreground carpet, blyxa, rotala roundifolia and cyperus helferi. Hope to have this running by the end of next week. Thoughts?

Thanks. I bought a 20kg box for £40, picked out the best ones then sold the rest on. So they were technically free

I'm really liking the light. Isn't it 3 8 watt T5 bulbs? Looks like its a good fit for your tank and is in the right color spectrum. Looks like an awesome start to me!
