The New Tank Measurements
My bad on the post topic, i thought it was a 30 but actually is a 36g
PS. Glass is not broken. thats my stuff in the fish tank stand
This is my first post so bare with me
So I just got a new free tank today. I'm planning to move my current 30g to the new 30g.. Since I am starting fresh I wanted to scape it a little and set up the substrate and plants before adding water/fish.
I need help on scaping, since I have never done it before and was looking for suggestions.
My goal for the tank is easy growing plants that doesn't require a lot of light nor CO2 injection (I already have a DIY co2 setup for my current tank but it is not being used, so If i need to i am willing to set it up and pump co2). I do however want plants to carpet the floor and have a lot of green basically filling up the whole tank. My goal is to have the tank have a forestly natural look to it.
I also need help on finding a light fixture for this tank.. My old one is way too small. Not looking to spend too much, But I do want a High light setup just in case i decide on getting plants that require high light and a timer on it switch on it as well. I also want it to be LED.
I feel like i'm asking a lot for u guys so please go easy on me lol thanks in advance.. Let me know if you guys want any better pictures.
I really hate this about my new tank.. Can I cut this piece off?? Planning on a open hood Tank. I wanted to take off all the plastic on the top to make it look like an edge less glass like my current one but I read it wasn't advised to do so
I currently Have Fluval Stratum Substrate mixed with sand. But I remember reading you can buy a bag of substrate (a specific brand dirt) from home depot for really cheap compared to the fluval stratum substrate? If I can't go the home depot route I was thinking about transferring some of my old substrate and mixing it with a new bag of fluval stratum?? Is the sand bad ??
Here is my current stock of plants that I'm planning on moving over to the new tank.
