Hi everybody. I just wanted to stop by and share with you my new little obsession. I'm not new to the hobby but I am new to the planted freshwater world. I have been been a reef fanatic for nearly 10 years. I have successfully kept an SPS/zoa dominated tank for many years. But this whole plant thing really intrigues me. I'm looking for some answers and advice. Here's a bit about the equipment that I have and the humble beginnings of my planted journey.
Tank: 20g long.
Substrate: controsoil (20lbs black 3mm grain)
Filtration: AC 50
Heater: Hydor Theo
Water: 6 stage RODI (seachem equilibrium added)
Lighting: lots of questions on this...
I plan on staying low tech to see where things go with this tank.
I'm looking at LEDS but I can't decide which one to go with. Current planted+ or finnex fugeray2. LEDS for planted tanks seem so bare bones compared to my reef lighting.
What are the best water parameters to keep for a planted tank?
What are thoughts on running carbon? I have a 5g bucket of BRS rox carbon I use for my reef tank. Just wondering.
A few pics:
Thanks for taking the time to read this and answer my questions.
