I've been bitten by the nano tank bug and would really like to give it a try. I'm wondering if i can get some comments on the equipment i plan to purchase. The biggest question i have is around lighting. From what i've read on the forums the watt/gallon kind of goes out the window with nanos, espicially with the tank i am considering.
- ADA Garden Cube 60F - would appreciate any comments on this tank especially the long shallow shape of it. I may consider a wabikusa, but the perspective i'm trying for is a long iwugami scape. If anyone has experience with this i would love to hear from you.
Aqualight with Colormax Fluorescent T-5 Lamp - 14W - 24 in
My question around lighting is - given the shorter hieght of this tank, will 14W be enough. The tank is about 8.6 gallons. I would like to grow HC or hairgrass as id really like to try my hand at an Iwugami.
- i plan on injected because i get sick of mixing yeast. I found this cool regulator for paintball canisters at thatpetplace.com
- ADA Amazonia
I'm debating a HOB or mini cannister. I'm leaning towards the Zoomed 501 Cannister since folks seem to like it.
Ferts and Supplements
I dose EI and Excel in my 55gallon with success, so i will likely attempt an appropriately dosed regime for a smaller tank.
Thanks in advance and i look forward to any comments!
