I have a 60G. 48"Lx13"Wx24"H. I am currently using a Fluval 406 and a Finnex 360 HOB canister. I may end up going with a small Fluval in the place of the finnnex because it has a small flow rate. I may also get a powerhead or something to sort out any flow issues I may have. The 406 suprised me because the flow rate doesn't seem that strong at all...
I will be using 2x54W T5HO, roughly 3 inches from water. I am starting with Jungle Val for background and dwarf sag for foreground. I hope to do some rotala and some others after I get my driftwood placed. Soon the back wall of the tank will be lined with jungle val. I wont placed the sag until I get driftwood placed. I will be ferting with excel, flourish, iron, and any others that I NEED. Haven't exactly figured that out, but I figure excel, flourish and iron will get me started. I don't have any livestock yet, and Im bouncing between bosemani rainbows, gbr's, and a big school of tetras (not sure which yet). Probably some loaches and/or cory's as well.
I didn't realize a small tank wouldnt last long. Thanks for that! I will probably get 2 5lb. tanks so I have one filled and ready at all times.
