This is my work in progress spec
Feel free to give your input or advice on my set up and layout. I'm still trying to get it the way I want!

So far....
Plant substrate, from previous planted tank
10 watt heater in sump
Co2 fluval 88 (need to install tomorrow) wish me luck, first time
Using prime, regular flourish
Simple clip led light. Still researching the right light upgrade, leaning towards finnex
Plants are assorted from LFS suggestions. (I'm hoping to back and scape out some carpeting plants)
6 assorted shrimp ( more to come)
4 panda Cory's
1 actinte snail, correct spelling?
Hoping to add more shrimp and maybe a betta later on.

Questions so far. Thinking I need a piece of driftwood, suggestions? Placement?
Carpeting plants, are they hard to grow, placement use do I have room in a 5 gallon for them
My co2 kit I'm looking fir advice to anyone who's used it, any tricks?
Can I use a different bubbie counter and different diffuser then the ones in the kit?

Enjoy took some pics so far. I've just done a big re design with some plants after my cycle was complete. So sorry is the waters a bit muddled up.
