Cool, I will have a look around for Muriate of potash but will go with what I've got if I have no luck. Any ideas on the Dolomite??

Here is a pic of my tank and where it will be positioned,

Its a standard 3foot tank and I have got a 96W T5 with a Catalina products (which I have never heard of ) 10,000K Ultra-sunlight bulb.

A few questions for anybody

Enough light?

Would it be worth putting a power head at the other end of the tank to get some flow going?

I have not really thought about scaping or plants, but as its open to both sides, maybe a good hunk of driftwood on the left to hide some gear and tall plants at that end, and lowers plants on the right. Any ideas on plants that would be suitable/for a newbie ?? (would prefer a lower variety and get them going really well!)

Thanks again! Man wish it was sunny to hurry up the drying process!!
