So I'm new to the aquarium world but I'm going to try my hand at it. I've ordered most everything for my setup but with everything running slow these days I have some time until everything arrives. Looking for tips and advice to get things going. Here's my setup:
-17 Gal Lifegard rimless tank
-Eheim 2213 canister w/ glass Lily pipe and protein skimmer input
-24/7 Planted+ LED
-ADA Amazonia substrate
-Seiryu rock and bonsai tree hardscape
I'm thinking monte carlo and dwarf hair grass carpet. I'm planning on having low tech tank.
A few questions I have right off the bat. What media to use in the filter? Are there any good sources for what water parameters should look like? I have a lot of iron in my well water. Should I try a dry start? Where do I hang the inlet and outlet for the filter?
