Empty 90 Gallon tank, Need input
So let's get the foreground laid here. I am an Amazon FREAK and that is just what I intend to do with this beautiful garage sale gem I just stumbled across. I intend to keep 4 Discus, 2-4 Bolivian Rams, a couple Corys, 4 double red aggies, a small tribe of cardinals, and a heap of foliage starting with: Java moss, java ferns, and other assorted small swords. I Already have a decent ammount of driftwood spread throughout my 29 gal and my 20L I will need to get one huge centerpiece. Included in the deal was an old fluval 203, not very suited for mech. filtration in this idiom, but it will be an excellent vessel for Ketapeat and bio. I plan on using 2 large sponge filters for mech.
Now, my question to you folks: My lfs says that if I go for co2 inj. that I will need at least 4x55w for cf or else my efforts will be in vain. Is this the way to go? I plan on using a substrate heater input on what substrate to use and other plants would be great. I am a newb when it comes to this realm of planted tanks and I don't plan on having this tank operational for a few mos. so any and all input will be greatly appreciated and considered. Right now I have a 29 and a 20 L, both are amazon and lightly planted w/ swords, Java fern, and Java moss. Input from other Amazon enthusiasts is a plus.
Thanks in advance,
