in a planted tank?
I am about to make my first REAL planted tank and I started thinking that maybe the carbon would remove some of the good stuff (ferts, nitrates) for the plants. Am I right in this assumption?
Anyways, this is my first post. I just want to say hello to the people of plantedtank.net. I am really impressed with the info and the tanks on display as well. I have generic planted tank right now with some cardinals, rams, and corys. I recently purchased some new substrate for my next step in the hobby. It's a 20 gallon and I'm about to do a transPLANT, with another 20 gallon high that I have at my parents house. I have already bought 2 bags of ECO-Complete, 1 bag of Black Tihitian Sand, a Hagen CO2 kit, a CO2 reactor, 2X 36 watt flourecent lights, picked a bunch of rocks from the river (all shapes and sizes, boiled and tested the PH), Enhiem ECCO 2231, plants are on the way. Well, thats about it. It has costed a good amount, but expected that. I plan on posting some pics and i hope everthing turns out well. Thanks for the help everyone.
If you have any ideas and suggestions to get me going, please feel free to share.
