I know nothing... want to get started!
So here's the deal. I have a 10 gallon aquarium I would like to turn into a planted tank. I have a few questions...
Do I need to worry about this co2 injection stuff in such a tiny tank? It seems intimidating and expensive lol...
What about filtration? How much filtration is needed in a planted tank?
I have a half a bag of that black Flourite stuff, how deep should the substrate be? Can I mix it with sand or gravel?
When it comes to lighting I know that watts seem to be important, do you just use regular aquarium lights? Are there things like UVA or anything that I need to look for?
I'm sure all these questions have been asked before, I'm just a little overwhelmed... Any startup advice is appreciated!
