Getting closer to being setup
I just wanted to share my good news of the evening.
I got my 2 Eheim 2215 filters via UPS today. Set up the substrate in my tank and hooked up the 2 filters. Put water in it, and ran the pumps.. and NO LEAKS!! (55 gallon tank) Now i'm just waiting on my 48" 108 watt t5 ho light setup. In about 3 - 4 weeks I will be investing in a pressurized CO2 system and then add fish and plants. In the mean time I will be cycling my tank without fish.
I'm so tempted to buy a plant or 2 to put in there.. but without CO2 or Fert I don't think it will go so well? Or is there a really hardy plant that will do fine with high light and not need the co2?
Also, tonight I got a 10 gallon tank with filter, substrate heater, and about 30 guppies from Craigslist that I will be using for a quarantine/hospital tank. But for now the guppies are fun to watch. Not sure if I'll be doing plants in that 10 gallon as I want that to be a little to very low maintenance tank.
