[APD] Please offer suggestions for my 29 gallong plan
New to this list and setting up my first "legit" planted tank.
My goal is to create a lush, green effect as a backdrop for a large school of
cardinal tetras. I would be very very appreciative if any of you can give me
feedback on my plans thus far.
I bought a 29 gallon seachem off of ebay and wanted some feedback on my
the tank comes with an AHS retro miro 1x55 watt kit. This doesn't quite give
me 2 watts per gallon. my question is are there plants that can give me the
desired effect [ lush full and green, few empty spaces] with this relatively
I am prepared to spring for 40lbs of ecocomplete. I hear its great stuff.
In your opinion is that enough or do I need to add something to the ecocomplete?
I would like to keep the water very soft and acid for the fish.. are there
plants that do extremely well with a 6.5 PH? I read here and there about plants
that tolerate a low PH but what about thrive in soft acid water?
I found an eheim 2213 for about 70 bucks new from an auction and I thought
this might be a good way to go .. l was told that cannister filters are the way
to go in planted tanks because they don't turb off the C02.
I am hoping and praying that I don't have to buy a high tech C02 system to
get the effects I want. I do have a hagen nutra grow on a small tank that seems
to help the plants I have in it..crypts and dwarf sag... etc.. but the
manufacturer says that is only effective for aquariums up to 20 gallons. I suppose
I could just buy another one and hopefully that would cover it.
Any thoughts or suggestions from this list are very much appreciated,
