New to planted tanks - some questions.
Hello, new member here. I am thinking about doing a planted tank but am unsure of where to start, and have lots of questions!
My current equipment:
- 55 gallon tank
- eco complete
- three pieces of driftwood(already boiled the tannins away)
My plan is to have the floor carpeted with dwarf hairgrass, and some java moss growing on the pieces of drift wood. My main concerns are with the filter, light, and chemicals needed(co2, ferts...etc)
1)Would an aqueon power filter(the one that hangs on the edge) be adequate for such a setup? Or would I need to dish out the cash for a canister filter?
2) For the 55 gallon tank, I have the 48" aqueon LED light fixture with one led bulb. Is this enough for a carpeted tank? Or would I need to buy 1 or 2 more bulbs?
3) I am confused on how to supply co2 to these plants. Do I use the liquid form, or some kind of co2 pump/machine?
