I have been out of the aquarium hobby for at least ten years, and wanted to get back into it. I am planning on setting up a planted cube with a few shrimp and fish. I was initially considering the Fluval Flora. However, there seems to be numerous posts that the filter is loud, CO2 system is expensive to keep replacing with proprietary cartridges, and light is inadequate for anything except low light plants. The tank will be in my bedroom, so quiet filtration is a necessity.
What do you think of the following set-up?
Finnex Low Iron Rimless Cube with FugeRAY Planted+
EHIEM Classic 2211
Cobalt Aquatics Neo-Therm 50-Watt
Maybe a paintball CO2 tank based system
