Hello everyone. ive been reading posts on here for a long time now, itching to setup another planted tank. now after moving into a room at the pub i work in, i have the space to do so.
im going to order a custom made optiwhite rimless tank. 24"L x 20"W x 12" or 10" high (thoughts?)
lighting is an OT1 arcadia luminaire 2x24w with plant bulbs.
filter would preferably be an ehiem with built in heater (will consider non heated with a hydor 300, advise?)
stand will be custom built by myself with mouting for an arcadia suspension kit
substrate im thinking eco complete as its cheap. 10kg enough? or any other cheap options you feel would be better?
Co2, im considering presurised, but would like to try easy carbo. worth a try or full kit all the way?
hardscape would be rock and thin roots. not sure what i want yet but may for for a 20kg pack of mini landscape. no idea on wood, may have to see what you lot can offer on here.
Fish, i would like a shoal of small fish to make to tank look bigger, maybe celestrial danios or chili rasboras. do they school well?
plants are still being pondered on but love DHG, so it shall be included.
All will be put into an aqua journal for all to enjoy, hopefully as much as i have enjoyed reading yours.
its going to be a long and expensive few months of setup(and waiting for the tank to be built, which im hoping to order next week).
help and advise more than welcome.
