Help with a new tank
Hi all, first time poster and first time attempting a planted tank here, so I have some questions regarding planted tanks. Thanks in advance for any help.
I'm looking for a generally low maintanence setup. I've been reading around, and it seems the moss tank is best suited for that. Is it true that with moss (java espacially), other then occasional pruning, there is less maintanence (ie CO2 measuring, balancing PH) involved? Some articles mention that all moss requires is a little fertiliser, constant lighting and thats it.
Also, I'm hoping to use a dark grey or black substrate. Since I have seen tanks where the moss grow on a bed of plastic mesh, is it correct to say that the choice of substrate is less important? Can someone recommand a dark substrate?
Many thanks for any feedback.
