Advice for planted tank newbie
Ok ive been a member for 3 years but never posted anything, so here goes..
I have a tank which ive had for 5 years now, and over that time ive tried various things with it, but its just never looked or felt right..
Currently it is sat empty and has been for 12 months, so its about time i got to it...
I want to create a planted tank (kinda obvious bearing in mind this is the planted tank forum. lol). However i dont want it too sparse that it looks unfinished, but i also dont want it too thick that you can't see all the fish (my 3yr old girl wants to be able to count them or so she says).
So im looking for some middle ground but i havnt a clue about how many plants i would need, or indeed which plants would be best for a 'beginner'.
The tank is a 215 lt - dimensions : 99w x 47d x 60h (cm) and currently has 2 x 100w and 1 x 75w tubes in it. the filter is a wet and dry trickle filter (if that makes a difference)
Any advice would be useful.
Thanks for taking the time out to read by post...
