rookie has some ??s for first planted 3g
Hey whatsup everyone glad to finally join, Ive been a reef hobbyist for about 10 years but never did much with FW besides a couple bettas. After seeing so many beautiful FW planted possibilities lately I decided I want to have a go at it. I did some reading on here but its overwhelming bc its all so new to me. I just bought a 3g Long tank for my windowsill and I wanted some advice/help with it if you dont mind. it faces West so it gets decent light but not a ton.(enough for my bamboo and peace lilly)
As far as stock list I was thinking of the seachem Flourite Clay for substrate. and the plants i really like are dwarf baby tears for the carpet, a Wendtti, a water lettuce to float up top, and maybe dwarf grass or something else in there.
I plan on it being pretty low tech with just a heater and mayybe maybe a 5g powerhead with a little carbon filter cartridge on it. and Dosing with Flourish for co2. so my questions are:
1. Will the window be enough natural light for a healthy tank? (dont need it thriving like crazy but just enough to work)
2. is the flourite good enough for a substrate?
3. Will the flourish be enough to meet co2 needs? or will i need to make a DIY setup for it even though id rather not if i can get away with it
Thanks a lot i really appreciate it
