Firstly I should say that I have only been on this forum for a short while and already I can see what a huge help it is going to be. The depth of knowledge and understanding on this forum is outstanding. Well done you lot! I used to work in a LSF some years ago, but I only dealt with fish and knew nothing much of planted tanks. I currently have a small 70 l tank but I am weeks away from moving to my new house where I will have a lot more space. I was always going to upgrade and buy a much bigger tank, but now I feel ready and inspired to try for a modest planted tank. This is what I want to achieve: I want a large fish tank with A LOT of healthy plants inside so that it looks as natural as possible. I do not want to use a canister CO2 kit, nor do I want to make my own using a Fire Extinguisher. This is because I havenâ€™t got the time to deal with plants growing like crazy and I doubt I would be able to keep up with the demands of the tank. Also, those canisters scare the hell out of me! Sorry to sound like a douche bag, I just donâ€™t want to use canisters or fermentation come to think of it. So basically I donâ€™t want to become an award winning aquascapist over night. I just want a good healthy looking tank with lots of lush green plants that donâ€™t die, but grow nice and strong. This is the plan, will it work? I am either going to buy a Juwel Vision 260 or a Juwel Vision 450. Thankfully this isnâ€™t down to space or money, I just havenâ€™t decided if I will be taking on too much if I went with the 450 litre tank. However, if I went with the 260 litre tank, would I just regret not getting a larger tank when I had the chance? I am going to use an 80/20 mix of eco-complete with very small gravel as a substrate. Will that work? The Juwel tanks that I mentioned above have T5 lighting at 2 x 54w. Will that be enough light for what I want? Instead of using a CO2 canister I would use a liquid carbon on a daily basis such as Easylife Easycarbo. As long as I stuck to the correct daily amount for a tank my size, would that be okay? Could I then get away with using Easy Life Profito as my only fert or would I need to use root tabs and other individual chemical additives? Will that work for me, or am I missing something? As you can probably tell, I want a set up that will get a good looking tank, but Iâ€™m not trying to be the new Mr Amano. My set up needs to be relatively easy and not too time demanding. When I read the threads and blogs of the planted set ups that some of you guys have done, I have nothing but admiration for you. However, I know that I donâ€™t have the time or inclination to go through with something like that. Maybe if I start off like this I will eventually be able to move on and take the hobby more seriously. Thanks for any replies in advance!
