Re: [APD] new to hobby
since a lot of what you do as far as lighting, ferts, fish load etc is
dependant on the water volume, it is very important to know exactly what you
The only tank according to All Glass table with a 24 inch width is a 10
while I have not used the Do!Aqua liquid conditioner I am familiar with
the manufacturer and people associated with their products and respect their
Let's say that your ferts and your water conditions are suitable IMHO most
plants will do fine if the water is not really low in Gh Kh.
what is the wattage of your lighting? if you use the 2 WPG rule f you
need a light source of between 1.5 and 2.5 watts per gallon (WPG). Of note,
the amount of light will impact the growth rate and the need for higher
levels of ferts. High light levels are IMHO a PITA to manage. Unless you really
want to devote the time/money and there are specific plants that would
respond better to higher light levels, you might consider keeping the light at
a level below 2.5 WPG. You tank is fairly low in height and light reaching
the bottom won't be an issue. You should be able to grow most plants.
Because of the size of the tank you should be careful in avoiding some plants
that will get too large for your tank.
Again, look at the AGA contest photos for the past several years for the
tank size you have. It will give you some good ideas of what works.
Have fun an let us know how the tank works out for you.
