Plant newbie with questions!
Started planting my tank a month ago.
40 gallon breeder, freshwater, stock...cory cats, upside down cats, blue botia & cherry barbs.
Tank is medium planted (anubius, Amazon sword, Kyoto, compacta & bamboo)
Glass covered tank, not lifted. Tank maintains temp of 78/80 degrees, plenty O2, BUT aeration stays on 245hrs, as tank is very stocked. Fertilizer - leaf zone api x1/wk.
I want to heavily plant my tank with all of the plants already mentioned and i need help with lighting.
Right now I only have LED lighting.
I have a very limited budget for lighting so if somebody could give me some options I would appreciate it!
