I use ADA Amazonia and riversand on either ends with glass marble divider in between. I diffuse pressure CO2 with a ceramic steel diffuser and every alternate day inject macro and micro ferts in CSM+B and DTPA Fe on EI. Enough LED lights are provided at 11000 kelvin for 8 hours with red and blues too.
