Planting and lighting new 40br
I just purchases a 40g breeder (36x18x16) this past weekend and I'm in the planning stages of setting it up right now. I've already decided on the fish and the filter, now it's on to lighting and plants.
I'd really like to do a 95% Cryptocoryne tank. I have a 1X96w cf light from a previous tank that I'd like to use. I also want this to be a non-CO2 tank. So...with 1x96w over this tank (~2.4 wpg) can I get away with no CO2? I'd like to use some of these crypts: wendtii, balansae, beckettii, willisii, lucens, and parva. Not sure which ones yet. Will some do better than others with this lighting/no CO2? I'll probably add some Java ferns and maybe some moss as well. Any other plant suggestions for this tank?
