The company I work for is moving office in a few weeks, and I'm thinking of spicing up my new desk with a little FW nano tank. I had a betta once before, but thinking I may just go with a planted tank this time, maybe add a few shrimp.
I guess my first & biggest question is, do I need filtration for a planted tank? Do I need to cycle the tank?
I own a tank similar to this (Small Tank
) which has a UGF but I found the power head far too strong for the small size of the tank. Would the flow be bad for shrimp?Would I need to run the UGF for a planted tank?
Otherwise I may purchase a tank similar to this (Small Tank
) if filtration is required.
What sort of plants would you recommend? I'm thinking something along the lines of Amazon swords or similar.
