55 Gal Build help plz
Hello all, New to the forum here obviously but have been lurking as a guest for a long time. I have had small scale lightly palnted tanks in the past but am looking to get into a hightech setup with Co2 and EI dosing as I think this will suit me best.
So with all of that being said im not sure what all i will need in terms of equipment, I know a drop checker, tank, regulato,r solenoid, needle valve, bubble coutner and a diffusion method.
I have read about many many diffrent difussion methods and this is one area i am ready to spend a good deal of cash on as it seems to be most important with injection.
As far as lighting goes i already have a dual T5 HO fixture that runs the length of the tank but will this be enough for EI and Co2 injection? I was looking for a list of ferts i will need aswell with this build. For the substrate im going to go with sand no cap methods or anything fancy just sand.
Then once i have all my equipment and ferts how do i start the tank to find my balance? Will it be ok to start with a few plants and jsut buy them as budget allows? What is the best way to start a tank like this in your opinions? Nothing is rolling yet but all im waiting on is to get the info and then place the orders.
Thanks in advance!
