Planted tank attempt. Please advise
I had a saltwater aquarium for about 5 years, but I tore it down. Mainly because I moved and secondly because I'd like to have a simpler life. Saltwater was too much hassle for me.
So, I'm thinking of setting up a planted tank. I have a 30l Dennerle Nano tank and a canister filter and I'd like some advise on plants and equipment please.
First things first, which easy-moderate nano plant would form a decent carpet? Not keen on HC or MC, as they tend to float and they need trimming quite often. At least that's what I've read on the internet. I was thinking of something more... grassy.
Moving on to lighting; what LED light would you recommend, given that I have a limited budget?
Finally, what's the best route for CO2 injection; buy a kit like Tropica's, or DIY?
Thank you in advance.
