So I wanted to take a dive into a planted tank and hope I can do it
without to many issues. So let me tell you some basic information.
*Tank is 75gallons ( 72x12 )
*I only have the default light I do have a 62W 10K light that I can
use I will need to get a second light
*with the 62Watt light that puts it at 1.2WPG (if im doing the math right)
So what I wanted to do was a community tank (not sure on the fish)
One think I love about planted tanks is a carpet.
When I tried this a few years ago I tried to do a carpet but it did
not grow very fast after about a month there were like two new
So question number 1. What type of plant do you recommend for a good
fast growing carpet?
Next question is simple is a Co2 system (with simple yeast and warm
water) or root tabs recommend?
Do you have any recommendations on what plants to use Ill have
driftwood in the tank.
Also any tips you have to give.
Last question I promise :)
Have any ideas on where to get cheap lights the 62watt light I got
Below is an image of a planted tank I like.
P.S I will be using 2-3in substrate of Eco-Complete
