Hey guys and gals!
I've decided to get a tank for my home office. I don't really remember how I made that decision, but its been made. I've been scouring craigslist for the past few weeks trying to acquire a decent sized tank for cheap and am closing in on one. Its probably going to be in the 40-50 gallon range. I've had tanks before, but never this big and never with live plants.
I think I am going to use a layer of Eco-complete (because that's what I've read is the best) topped with a layer of play sand (because I like the look). So, where do all of you buy your substrates and plants from? I live in Santa Clarita (Northern LA County). Does anyone know of good local shops around here or are the best prices online?
Any tips you would give a noob starting his first planted tank?
