After read carefully, i decide use the Eco-complete as base and the stratum on top.
Here is the progress. I will add the CO2 once the aquatek regulator arrive in 2 days. I have another planted tank and i am adding same substrate but already cycled to help this tank cycling, also the filter is cycled already.
For the moment i am adding Flourish Excel to help with the CO2. I am not sure if add Zone Leaf now because i don't want an algae explosion.
Here is my project:
2 Kessil A160WE Tuna Sun Lights - 10 hours a day with a timer full blast
CO2 injection with Aquatek Mini regulator - Same time as the lights
Substrate: 20 pounds CaribSea Eco-Complete for base and 17.4 pound of Fluval Stratum on top.
Filtration: Aquaclear 50 with a intake sponge filter
Heater: [email protected]
DHG for the moment as carpet
After everything is fully cycled,
10 nerite snails, 20 Neocaridina Blue Dream shrimps.
