Sounds great, I'm probably gonna order a Mini M, driftwood, rock, amazonia substrate. Would the Eheim be too much flow?, does anyone use little HOB filters? Java moss and anubias sounds great! No Co2 for now would be convenient but as you said I definetly want to venture out and get some HC. (The stuff that everyone covers there tank with)
I'm always rescaping and overhauling any tank I've had after like 6 months or a year, so planted tanks probably won't be too different.
UG that ADA mini M of yours is amazing
With 20 watts what should I expect for algae w/o CO2? BTW what site did you get your mini M's lights at UG?
