I think i got everyting need to start a reliable planted tank, i have never done one before but from reading this fourm i think ive came up with the best setup that will last me for awhile with the least maintenance.

milwaukee co2 regulator/bubble counter
milwaukee co2 controller
5lb tank
power co2 reactor/tubing
coralife 65w cf fixture
magnum 350 canister
2 bags eco complete
heater

all going into a 20 gal tank with built in wet dry.

What plants do you guys recommend? i want the most natural looking tank possible. Thanks!

Guess its almost time to start my tank journal

Sounds good. I would suggest disabling the wet dry. It is going to drive off the co2, and since you have a canister you won't need the extra filtration.

Was thinking about that, would the magnum be ok just to run by itself? would that provide enought filtration. If so guess it time to sell the tank and just get a regular, and ill have more room.
