It looks like I will not be using a dimmable driver. I can't find one that I like. All the drivers with the features I want require external power supplies or other components I don't want to deal with. So fixed current it is. On the bright side, the driver I used on my last tank is great so I can just use another of those and it'll be a known quantity.
Sorry I don't have more pictures for you all yet, until I get the tank there really isn't much to do. I'll be home for a few weeks before school starts soon so hopefully I can start building the CO2 reactor and filter then. For now I have a few things I'd love to get feedback and opinions on.
Not sure how I want to arrange all the plants or even which species I want to use. I'd really like to try out hydrocotyle tripartita. Have any of you grown this before?
In the past my aquascaping generally just consisted of "tall in the back, short in the front, javafern on the driftwood". I'd like to try something with a bit more direction this time but I don't really know exactly what I want yet. A long pice of driftwood could look nice going down the tank. But I'd also really like to have some big rocks. I want to try not to use any plants I've had before but like I said I really haven't decided which. Suggestions?
