Lighting on an 11" cube + filter an plants Q
I'm currently in the process of setting up an slightly less than 11" nano to trial the tom barr emersed growth method of planting HC and I was wondering what is the best light source once it is set up?
I was considering a single 24watt power compact or possibly a pair of AZOO or arcadia nano lights.
Also while browsing I found a nano LED luminair intended for reefs but this would be spot on, I have emailed the shop and await a reply regarding sutability, the question here really is which method of lighting would people suggest/ say would provide the best source of light?
I would like to avoid co2 injection where possible but I may sway and use diy until funds allow for pressurised if co2 proves to be essential.
For the scape I intend to have a carpet of hc with a center peice of a moss covered unipac root and also some anubias or miniature crypts, something low maintainance anyway, possibly some stems of HM as a back ground.
That or Iwagumi style layout with just HC and moss I don't know ATM, which would people suggest and what plants would you use?
Also I already own a Eden 501 which I intend to use on the tank to provide filtration, I beleive the tank comes in at just over 4.5gallons would this be suitable and provide suitable flow?
Thank you for any responce,
