Does this sound right? (60 gallon tank)
I've decided to do a 60 gallon planted fish tank for the family to enjoy.
It is 45" x 18" x 18".
The light is 18" and sits in the middle, a T5 with two white florescent / one blue... (not sure how to find out the watts?)
Also have a canister filter set up.
I plan to do a fairly simply scape, ALOT of java moss, possibly grass and a few stem plants... For fish, I plan to build up to 40-50 schooling fish of tetra's / harlequins and lots of shrimp.
I've read around to answer most of my questions, but there are still just a few things I'm confused about...
1) Do I really need to 'fert' my plants if there are fish there? Do my plants even need ferts?
2) Does it sound like I have enough light? I have some of indirect sunlight too
3) Can so few plants sustain the fish I plan to keep?
Blah, sorry if I am asking alot of common questions, but the advice is very very very much appreciated! (Trying to complete my trip to buy plants asap)
