Hello guys! So I want to share my journey to the hobby about my first planted tank. At the moment, I am waiting for the delivery of my aquarium items. How I came about the things I purchase boils to the issue of space. I live in Hong Kong and as you know, flats and rooms here are practically smaller compared to other places. So the biggest option for a tank that I was able to order is around 10gal. Below is my setup: Kotobuki Glass Aquarium 61X20X30cm Aquaworks tru-led 4 waterproof white led light NAG Aqua music hang on style clear glass thermometer(for 6mm thickness tank) Eden 511-100W Ada value set pack- Include: ADA PENAC P, ADA PENAC W, ADA BACTER100, ADA TOURMALINE BC and ADA CLEAR SUPER Ada aqua soil amazonia powder type 9L Api 5 in 1 test strips Seachem prime 500ml Open ball shaped glass filter pipe set (12mm I think) generic china made Basically the items are expected to arrive around two weeks due to pre order of the tank. And I just found out that my ada powder soil is out of stock so I need to source out to other supplier. I am in no hurry as this gives me ample time to further research in what I really wanted to achieve in my tank. Questions like what kind of scape I'll do, what plants are good for beginners, do I start dry, what stones etc. At the moment, my biggest issue is I want something like iwagumi style simple with some rocks and maybe a drift food with some carpeting. And maybe just tetras for the fauna. I hope you guys can give me some suggestions and if you can provide some pictures I'll really appreciate it.
