I almost wish I'd never found this place. I was going to throw some eco complete and plants together and see what happened ! Now Ive seen whats possible, Ive got to almost go the whole hog and have a proper planted tank. Right, this about where Ive got to so far..... - Tank -48 x 12 x15 Rena -already own Lighting - currently 2x 30w T8, room for 1 or maybe 2 T5'S. I was thinking of having 1 T5 come on for a few hours as mid day, but am open to advice. Cheapest supplier anyone ? Filtration - 2x Eheim 2028 Pro 2. Own 1, was looking to ebay or maybe Zooplus for the second. C02 - Aquatic magic Regulator/bubble counter and rhinox diffuser Are these folks reliable ? Ebay Fire extinguisher 2kg Eco complete substrate - I was thinking 4 bags ? Cheapest supplier ? Now, plants ? TBH, I was just going to buy a pre picked mix from Greenline, but Im not sure if this is a good thing to do or not ? On the face of it Tropica plants look dear, but I guess you get what you pay for. I was going to dose TPN + along with the C02 as well. Fish - I have a few in another 3 foot tank I was going to re house, but I have 3 Botia Striata and I really like the idea of keeping shrimp, so I guess thats a no go ? I quite like the idea of running a powerhead during lights out to give the fish a breather to, so maybe another recommendation. Ive never done a proper aquascape before, so am looking forward to it. I really like London Dragon's set up. Thanks for reading this far, Ive read about 80% of this forum over the last week or two and am picking up iformation almost daily.
