First Nano Tank! Need Help
So I think I'm going to be ordering my first nano tank soon. I saw one online I lik a lot its 2.3 gallon, 18 inches long. I would like to get some input/feedback on what you all think of how I should set it all up. I have a few ideas, just looking to finalize.
I think I will use an aquaclear 20 for filtration unless you can think of a better or cheaper one that will work. I think I'll need a small heater just because the winters are cold here so the temp in the hpuse fluctuates a bit. I'm pretty lost on what lighting to use. I saw one on eBay that another member used for this sizetank but not sure if it will have enough light for what I want. LED or fluorescent? Maybe ecopico strips I'm thinking of using aqua soil or flourite as substrate, Mmaybe injecting DIY CO2.
As far as plants go, I'm thinking E Belem carpet, blyxa japonica or crypt willisii, anubias petite,a smaller crypt possibly wendtii, some moss and finally a short stem(any suggestions?) Possibly red watermilfoil or ambulia.
As far as fish/inverts I was thinking just a few ottos some shrimp and a scarlet badis. Any other suggestions? Maybe pygmy cories.
let me know what you think guys! Thanks a lot
