Hi and thanks for the hospitality. lol. Wont lurk around anymore. I believe ill have just as much fun following existing member's setups as youll have following mine.
I am a fan of planted FW setups, but did not have much success with them so far. Thats why im doing some research now. As i want i planted aqaurium, i havent really considered what fish i want to keep, maybe ill opt for a densely planted thank with a school of neons, or a community.
I want to get a 4 Foot setup ( 48"x23.6"x17.71", LxHxW), approximately 65 Gallons. Not exactly sure about what lighting i want to use because ive read about the WPG rule that should be only used as a guideline, and i wont have the budget for too expensive CO2 systems used in hi tech planted aqauriums today. And for filter choice im considering to use a sump, but unsure about the return pump and sump design. But at least i have lots of time to research and figure things out.
I am currently shopping around for a tank. almost look like ill be getting a better deal buying a new tank than a second hand one, but ill be patient, since im only planning to set up in january next year.
