i'm planning a 10g planted tank, and i need your help.
the tank is 17" x 13.5" x 13". i need suggestion for the types of light (bulbs or strips) and wattage.
for background plants, i want to have 3 types of fast growing plants (like water sprite or water wisteria). i will prune once a week. for middle plants, i want average growing plants, preferbly 4 types of plants. for foreground, i want slow/low growing plants, preferbly rosette or similar (like Eleocharis parvula). does anyone have any suggestion for the types and number of plants? if possible, give me links from aquaspot world
. thanks. however, keep in mind there will be no CO2 added. i will be following seachem sugested dosing chart other than the buffers. there would probably be 5 ottos too. also, i want all the plants to be rooted to the substrate, not floating or attached to rocks/driftwood.
the filter would be the tom aquatic mini canister filter i have on hand, used to be used on my 20g brackish, but has been replaced by a bigger one lately.
substrate would be seachem fluorite.
plan of the tank:
dark green is background plants, light green is middle plants, yellow is foreground plant, and red is driftwood leaning against the back aquarium wall. i would probably use black background.
my vision is to have those those lush green, really nice tanks.
i would be ordering the plants from my lfs.
