actually, here in the philippines, we don't have immediate access to those nice substrates. would you believe that i am using garden soil (got it from our backyard) about 2-3 inches of it as the first layer and then an inch or two of riversand. no eco complete or any substrate from lfs. i washed the two substrate well and sifted it.
my CO2 started with airgun tanks, but since i havent had time to fill er up, i used DIY CO2. one bottle of 1.5 liters. Fed the output to a small submersible pump, letting the bubbles get crushed by the impeller. im not sure about the price, but it only cost me the submersible pump, i got the smallest one i could find.
uhmm.. for planted tanks, you must choose your substrate well, the lighting is also a factor. you must choose if you are into low light, mediu lighting or high light. i've actually researched for a month since i didnt have a know how on planted tanks. forums to forums, getting all the experiences from well known people.
for me, know the plants the you want to keep, what are their requirements, their needs and how they grow. then setup your aquarium to their needs.
