Hi all -
I'm new here
. I used to have 29g and 45g planted tanks but left the hobby because of the incessant algae battle that I fought
(high light, no CO2 to little CO2 injection).
Anyways, I've decided to get a JBJ 6g nano-cube and house a puffer or two in it.
My questions are as follows, in order of importance:
1) Since I will have it in my bedroom, and I'm a pretty light sleeper, how QUIET is this tank? Granted the fans won't matter since they'd only be on when the lights are on, which obviously wouldn't be when I'm sleeping! I'm more concerned with the filtration noises (impeller noise, water agitation noise, etc). Will the fans come on if the blue led (moonlighting) is on during the late evening hours??
2) Since I'm embarking on a mid-high light tank (3wpg, PC lighting), I will definetly be using Seachem Flourish and Excel. However, am I looking at constant pruning, given the lighting?
3) What type of filtration media do I need to buy for the JBJ when it's time to swap it out? I know with the Eclipse 6 systems, you can use the Fluval media and it lasts MUCH longer than the standard, Marineland media for the tank.
That's all I can think of at the moment. I really like this website and forum - great gobs of information and nice people. Thanks again!
