T -7 and counting
I can't wait to set up my new tank. I'm just planning in my head what I need to get before I start in 7 days. Tank
I have my 60ltr clear seal aquarium, complete with hood and stand. Lighting
I have a lamp, need to check the type and colour range. Filtration
I have two filters, a fluval u4 internal and a fluval 103 canister. I will probably only use the canister filter. I have various filter material. Heating
I still need to get a heater I reckon 75 - 100 watts. Decor
I have my bog wood soaking in a bucket to stop it leaching into my tank.
I have some black gravel, enough for 1cm covering on base.
I have tetra substrate for under the gravel for my plants.
I need some stones and slate for decoration.
My plants I will purchase closer to the time. Cycling
I have read various articles on cycling the tank and I think I'll follow this one. Cycling a Planted Tank | Rex's Guide to Planted Tanks
It makes sense to me.
I'll try and keep an up to date journal with pics as things start to happen.
