September 2011

Lighting

DIY lighting untill i can afford a better setup. 4- 27 watt cfl bulbs 6500k turned horizontally

CO2

Will be setting up a DIY paintball co2 setup if needed.

I've not yet decided on fertilizers and other nutrient supplements.

Plants

Inhabitants

I'm still looking into this subject, but I'm thinking a red tailshark, an angelfish, a gourami or three (not sure yet on the type), a mixture of tetras, and an algae eater or pleco of some sort. I've thot about some shimp and snails but I'm not sure which would be best.
