6.3g Bookshelf Nano: Planning the Setup
I used to own many planted tanks, but I never fully got into CO2 which was always my dream. I promised myself if I came back to the hobby I would do it with CO2.
I am planning on setting up a nano rimless tank. I am set on the Mr.Aqua bookshelf tank. The dimensions are 24” x 6.7" x 9.4" (60cm x 17cm x 24cm) and it is 6.3 Gallons.
I have the necessities like a heater, filter, hardscape etc. and I'm trying to stay on a budget. All I really need to deal with is CO2 and then the fun part (buying plants and scaping)! I don’t want to get too fancy, just a simple CO2 set up. A friend of mine has the Aquatek Mini CO2 regulator and I am pretty set on it. I wanted to make sure I have a list of all the supplies I need:
Aquatek Mini CO2 regulator
24oz Tippmann paintball tank
Could you guys please help me out and let me know if I am missing anything?
Also, I have the Finnex FugeRay Planted+ 24” which will fit perfectly onto the tank, will this be too much light/too little? Or will I just need to find a perfect balance when injecting CO2 with that amount of lighting?
Thank you for everyone in advance!
