hi all,
i absolutly love this site every time i visit and check things out i want to plant a tank even more
so i decided to try a HC lawn in a 5 litre tank first and i have some questions hoping some of you can help me

my tank is small 26cm x 15cm x 15cm
i have a light that is the same length of the tank that i bought off ebay (it says 6700k)
i have 2kg of eco complete
and i have some hc growing in a container (emersed)

my questions are:
1- how thick should i lay the eco complete?

2- how do i fertalise the tank? i have a bottle of seachem flourish do i need anything else
and what doses do i use ie: mls or drops

3- i plan on buying one of those small 200lp/h toms rapid exturnal filters but atm i have no filter
so when and how many % of water changes should i do?

4- what is a good temp to set the heater at for plants?

5- do i need to make a diy co2? or will the ferts do?

sorry if my questions are stupid but im very new and would like to know and grow a healthy hc lawn for my first tank

thanks in advance
steven

Fredo, since this thread is located in the forum area for new enthusiasts and help with basic questions, etc., may I suggest that you spell out things like plant names? g
