New member ..and questions on getting started
I'm new here , I start keeping fishtanks 2 years ago with red belly piranhas and recently a new 55gal with a little rhombeus,I want to do a planted set up on this one but don't know much...
I live in Quebec Canada and speak french so my spelling may not be very good but i try my best .
So basically the project is:
-55gal tank (12"x20"x48")
- one 3" serrasalmus rhombeus
- no co2
-black substrate (to buy)
-low tech light ( the best grow possible without co2..)
-filtration is one fluval 405 and one oem whisper(360gph for both)
-temp is 80-82*
-30% weekly water change ļ
-i also got 3-4 other little cleaner fish like pleco and ottos..
So , my questions is about a good lightning set up for that tank, as my lfs have nothing and price are ridicusly high here !
for substrate I was thinking about black gravel/sand look like flourite black sand
black substrates will make my fish color pop more tank sand i have actually
I have not really made a budget ... i can spend couple of hundred $$ for a good setup on the long run , these fish grow slowly and if i'm lucky i will have him for years in that tank.
that's about it , i will post pic later..
thanks in advance!
