I have decided once again to try a planted tank. My past attempts were trying to convert established tanks into planted tanks. They were also deep tanks, 29G and 20H.
At one point I had 5+ tanks, I've been down to a 20H for years. Last week, I bought a Betta and a little acrylic tank. My cat loves my new purchase. He scratched up the tank already and he's stressing out my poor Betta. So, now I keep a pillowcase over the tank 90% of the time.
So, I've been thinking about setting up a nano planted (glass) tank. I ordered the Pico 3 today. Also, ordered Eco-Complete & Flourite.
I want this to be low maintainance and as inexpensive as possible.
I think I'm good on the substrate.
What about lighting???? Looking for inexpensive options.
I have an OttLight. Would the OttLight (energy efficient 15wHD) plus the light that comes with the tank work?
Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
