Hello, first post here.
I am trying to get back into the hobby after a few years absence. My last tank was Eco-Complete. I did not have demanding plants so I had no issues with growth. I am trying to decide which route is the best for my new 40gal tank.
I tested my tap water the other day - will confirm it at LFS when I can get down there. pH 7.5, GH 180, KH 120, NO2 0, NO3 20
I am looking to have a planted tank, not planning on CO2 so nothing too demanding. Plan on having Asian nano fish species - C. marginatus (celestial danio), C. erythromicron (requires higher pH that other species I am interested in), B. brigittae, T. pumila, "rosy" loach, possibly other species as well but fleshing those few out may have me reach my limit. I would like to have some snails, shrimp and possible a thai crab as I have not had that species before
Any advice or tips?
BUMP - would love some advice
Any benefit to using eco complete over black diamond sand or black fluorite sand?
