| | Re: ank setup and Plant Suggestions? 20 Gallon Tank Mostly Invertebrates.
You have at least 3 choices for how to do the tank: You could use the El Natural method - see the forum here for El Natural. You could do a "hi tech" tank, meaning one with high intensity lighting, pressurized CO2, non-limiting fertilizing, and a inert substrate. You could use low to moderate intensity lighting, with either inert or nutrient rich substrate, and either DIY CO2 or no CO2. "Hi tech" requires the most expenses, the most work, and the best tank maintenance. El Natural requires the least expenses, the least work, and least rigidity in tank maintenance. Which would you like to try?
