Its been quite a few years since Ive had a fully planted tank and amazed at how much stuff Ive forgotten. Its slowly coming back but can't help but feel things are being forgotten. Was hoping to go with a mid-light tank - get some vals and just expand plant options.
37Gallon tank (30"W X 12"D X 22"H)
Here are the things I'm looking at going with - please let me know if there are better options out there - or if I'm missing something
-Adding flourite to existing gravel - so would be 50-50 mix
-Aqualight 30" T5 dual fixture - was hoping to get one 10K and one blue for daytime and night time ... would one bulb be enough? Looking for fixture that has individual switches for each bulb. Do not remember if the compact or T5 was a better option ...
-Flourish or flourish trace for ferts
-Was hoping to not have to go with CO2 - this tank does not have undertank storage so limited options. Curious about others opinion on this.
Anything else that is being missed??
Thanks for your help!
