So, I got a 5.5 tank for free. Actually, I got two 5.5 and one 55g but I don't have enough room to setup them all..
Anyway, I'm going to start one of the 5.5 and I decided to make a nice shrimp tank and see what happens.
I had some EQ already from my others thank that planning on using on the 5.5 tank. At this point I have which is a 40 Whisper HOB filter a 50w heater and I 12 w light fixture.
My plans are to keep the expenses under $100. What I need now is Substrate, Light Fixture and CO2.
I would like to keep it low tech. Although, I would like to have some Moss, small Nana anubia and some carpet plant. I thing those plants are demanding. therefore, I'll need more watts and good substrate. As far as CO2 I don't know if I can get away just with Excel or some cheap CO2 system like Red Sea CO2 bla bla bla thats only $30.
Please help me with this tank. Any opinions are more than welcome, I just started to look at information about Nano tanks and I haven't understand well the light rule for nanos yet but hopefully I would get some help with you guys!
