I am trying to get all that I need to get my 26 gal bow front up and running and need some help on what I need. I have the tank, 2x55w PC from AHS 53K, AQ200 with an extra sponge, food, Water Conditioner, magnet, net, heater and the driftwood and rocks I am going to use. So now I am looking at what else I need. This is what I can think of so far....just let me know if there is something I don't need or whatever.
Equilibrium if I use RO to top off and water changes
For the substrate:
A 60/40 mix of Eco-Complete for plants and Tropic Isle Tahitian moon sand
For co2 injection the Hagan Co2 natural plant system. I know I could build one cheaper but I like the look of this unit.
For test kits:
The freshwater master test kit (PH,GH,KH,AM,NI) from Aquarium Pharm + there Nitrate kit
Some sort of Phos Kit and some Iron kit
I need to know if these are good kits and what else I might need. I am not looking for the best one...but one that works.
And a Aquaplat Clip
Now all this stuff I got from looking at Dr Foster&smith.com but that doesn't mean I am going to order all this from them so if you know of better stuff somewhere else just let me know.
Does that cover me?
Also where can I order a all glass glass cover for there 26gal BF tank for cheep?
