A first time 5 gallon planted tank
I want to apologize first off for the length of this thread. I have a lot of questions regarding planted tanks, especially one this small. My first question is about my choices of plants. I was thinking of going with Java moss, micro swords and dwarf Sagittaria and was wondering if they would work in my small tank without having to go with c02? The next obviously would be what added filtration would I need, carbon packs or whatever. Also I found a nice sea chem fluorite substrate for planted tanks and was wondering if that would be good or if y'all can recommend something better/ different. Lastly I was wondering if I could use the led lights that come with the tank( Fluval Spec 5 gallon) or if I need something better. I am also undecided on if I am going to go with fish or shrimp. Please feel to offer any tips/advice. This will be my first planted tank as well as a tank this small. My last tank was a 75 gallon cichlid tank, so a huge change for me.
