    Hi
    I am in the stages of starting a 220l medium tech planted tank.

    The bare tank specifications so far are...

    Capacity:220l
    Dimensions: 36"x16"x24" (LxWxH)
    Lighting: 2x 20w T8
    Filtration: Tetratec ex1200

    As the tank is quite tall I am aware that I will have to upgrade lighting to penetrate the lower levels.

    Basically I need advice and help on what equipment to go for, such as Co2 kit and soil nutrients...plus anything I have forgotten.

    As for the layout I am wanting something like a "enchanted forest"... a nice "bushy" effect with moss's and Ricca.

    Any advice will be much apreciated.

    Regards
    George

    Start here and the other articles in the tutorial section. Once you've had a good read of those then come back if anything's unclear.
