I just set up an old 10 gallon aquarium for my grand daughter which revived my interest in aquariums. So I am getting out the old 55 gallon tank with thoughts about setting it up as a paludarium if I can figure out how to do it. I am not sure if that's really what I want to do or just stick to an aquarium with a nice substrate, external filter and lots of beautiful aquatic plants. So if you wouldn't mind just made it easy on this old man and tell me what external filter and lighting system I should buy. I will be eternally grateful if I don't have to make that decision. :pout:

A guy offered me Crabgrass and said it would grow anywhere. I oppted for some conventional aquatic plants and ordered an Ehiem 2213 for the 55 gallon tank. I am still debating on a lighting fixture.

This is a month later to the day--October 8, 2008. I have been gathering driftwood----roots of an old dead tree found in a dry creek bed. Have to boil the driftwood. I purchased a Eheim 2213 & Catalina Aquarium 4/54W florescent light fixture which is not set up yet. Neither is the Ehiem. Will probably purchase Geishmann bulbs later.
