Newbie Catching up 20 Yrs
I've barely scratched the surface of this site, though I can see it'll be a great resource. I'm about to re-new my 29, and in looking around, a lot has happened in 20 years. I think I'm most interested in the capped flourite substrate.
That said, here's where I am-29 gal with an Eheim 2213 and suction extractor. The canister is set up for particulate and bio filtration with an occasional chemi-zorb. I have regular gravel and inadequate lighting, and a 'medium' population of fish and plants. The light will be at least partially addressed as I have a twin strip due in next week. It's a twin tube AquaticLife with 6k bulbs.
So, could someone point me to a few links on the pros and cons of that substrate meathod? Does anyone want to encourage me to use something else?
Also, what filters do you prefer?
