low maintenance set up
I have a custom size tank (approx. 50" x 30" x 30") that used to be a salt water set up. It has 2 metal halide lights and a sump. How can I best change it into a simple planted aquarium that won't have an algae problem, whilst using what I have? I know I won't need the skimmer, and I have lower level bulbs (that originally came with the fittings). I want to set it up 'right' so it runs as smoothly as possible. Would I need cO2 as the lighting is pretty strong? Could I just reduce the lighting time? What else do I need to consider?
