can anyone give me a failsafe plan for starting a 20 gallon planted aquarium considering that i will be keeping mostly anubias. Starting from scratch please list the items i need sparing no expense.from substrate to lighting.
Add 1/3 sand, peat, potting soil to enough pots to cover the bottom.
Add 2" of water with a 1/4 teaspoon of KNO3, 1/8 teaspoon of KH2PO4, Traces(5mls) ands change the 2 " water layer every 2 weeks or so. Add 2x 20 watt lights and a fairly sealed top.
That's it. Algae free and will grow like mad.
But if you want submersed growth, you will need more time and trouble/cost.
