Help with Planted Tank Set Up
I have recently gotten my first fish tank and I am looking at having some plants in it. I think any fish that I add will be introduced to the tank after the plants have established themselves. The tank is a column tank and here are the measurements: 13.5 x 13.5 x 24 (L x W x H). The light I'm going to be getting is the Finnex FugeRay Planted+ Aquarium Light in 12" and I will be getting an AquaClear 30 HOB filter.
I'm just not sure what plants to get. I'm thinking about putting the plants in layers, so plants in the back, the middle and low/ground level. Java Fern is what I'm looking at for the middle though not sure if it would be too big for tank. I welcome any recommendations you might have.
I'm also stuck on substrate. I'm hoping to get something good for plants but that is at the same time is around $20-30 without shipping.
