I am currently planning an 18 x 15 x 13cm setup, probably as an iwagumi with dwarf hairgrass and HC. For a filter I will be using Azoo Mignon 60. For substrate I was thinking ADA Amazonia for planted areas, with a small amount silver sand instead for bare space at the very front.

I have been looking at lighting, but I cant work out what would be most suitable for this size tank. I would preferrably like something not DIY, as frankly I am no good at it! Any Ideas? I'm also wondering about the correct wattage over this tank, as I know the 3wpg doesnt apply at this size.

I will be adding Excel for the carbon, but what other fertilization would you reccommend or use yourself? I will be using R.O. water if thats any help.

Thanks in advance...

Tom

Thanks guys, it seems we cant get the coralife over here. I'm leaning towards LED's at the moment. I just need to work out how many watts I will need and how to wire them up the the mains electric. Anyone use LED's?

have you considered a desklight with a spiral compact bulb?
