First Tank, Tips?
Yes, I am new here. I am trying to set up my first planted tank. I've been researching like crazy, and I am determined not to have a catastrophic failure.
So, my tank will be a goldfish tank. 1 black moor and 1 telescope. It will be in a 20 long gallon tank, for now. I am aware that I need a bigger tank and I will be establishing a new 50-60 gallon tank in june or july. So now i need tips on the planting part. I was planning on using Eco Complete Planted Black Aquarium Substrate. Has anyone used this before? Also, how would you set up a CO2 system? Or, would I need to with the fish? Basically, what I need to know is how can I balance between the fish and the plants, and what are some things i would absolutely need? Do I need an air pump? Also, what are some plants that would fit in well with the bulgy eyed goldfish? I have seen a couple of people mention anubias nana, but they look kind of rough. I've used Anacharis in a platy tank, and it quickly spread out of control, overtook my tank, and then died. So what plants would some of you recommend?
