Plans for a 7.5 gallon cube
This will be my first attempt at a planted tank. As some of you might remember I have done a cichlid tank, and a 40g reef and and a 125g reef.
As of now the tank in question is sitting with gravel, a small internal canister filter, a 50 watt heater, and a coralife 10 watt 50/50 PC bulb.
substrate: 20 lbs of eco-complete
lighting: 1 coralife colormax 20 watt bulb (6700k)
Livestock: not too sure, There is a betta in the tank now, I was thinking of replacing him with a school of dwarf rasaboras
Filtration: I figured I would keep the internal filter for now, but hopefully replace it with a HOB
Flora: Im not sure.
CO2: Not sure here either
If I only ran one bulb would I need CO2?
Would a DIY CO2 be enough?
Would it be a better idea to run 2 bulbs?
Would I need CO2 then?
What could I keep?
Any suggestions, comments, etc?
thanks for the help in advance, Hopefully you guys can help make this tank a successful as the rest of my tanks.
