Hey ya'll! My name is Steve. I've got a 10 gallon tank with eclipse 1 hood and 50 watt visi therm heater. Its just sitting in my closet empty so I decided to set up a small planted aquarum. If anyone has any tips or advise, send them my way.
First I would like to just give you my opinion on what I would do to have a fresh brand new planted aquarium. Since the tank you are using is a 10 gallon, I would buy a 20lb bag of eco-complete, which costs anyway from $11-$30 online or at your lps. Then I would either diy co2 system unit or buy one from thatpetplace.com for $17. From on there, I would have a nice foreground of dwarf saggitaria, maybe a center piece driftwood with java moss or java fern. As a background plant I would probably have horn wort, or some type of sword.
That would be a nice start off if you plan to do as said.
