a newbie looking for ideas
i am new to the forum and planning on starting a planted tank.
my current set up is a 75g tank with a t12 light on it a ehiem 2075 canister filter and emperor 400 power filter. i currently have regular gravel in the bottom with a large piece of drift wood and some rocks as decor. i am currently keeping 3 angelfish ,2 white tetras, a pink kissing gourami, and a blue gourami in it.
so now heres where ideas come into play im planning on upgrading the lights to a double t5ho strip (saw a hagen glo at a fish store, already have 1 on my 120g tank and it works great) not sure which kind of bubls to go with. i was also thinking about going with mgops as a base with some eco complete as a cap or possibly some ada. not sure about how thick of a base of substrate you need to put in the tank itself. so i was wondering from reading the forums if i should ditch the emporer 400 and just run the 2075..if need be i also have an ehiem 2217 i could run with the 2075.would i need a co2 injector in a set up like this? i was also hoping someone could point me in the direction of what kind of plants i should look into to begin with.
thanks in advance
