I am a noobie, so please forgive my ignorance. But after taking care of a Betta fish in a 6 gallon tank for the past 4 years, I am prepared to move on up! For the past few weeks I have been devouring any resource I can find online as well as youtube about planted tanks. I was wondering if there is any advice on additional equipment I might need.
Thus far I have gathered:
-a 29 gallon tank with 30 inch Versa glass top
-a Finnex FugeRay Planted Plus LED light
-an AC 70 (to be used "normally") and an AC 20 (to be loaded up with biomax only)
-API stresscoat water treater
Sooo, I'm thinking of getting Eco-Complete for substrate, and I don't know about which fish and plants to get. I do have an idea that I want to have a low-tech tank without infused CO2 (maybe supplementing with some Flourite Excel and Comprehensive?). And the lush green, carpeted tanks that I see on youtube are quite appealing to me
Any comments on my implementation or advice on how to progress will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
