I'm planning on making a tank for a black ghost knife fish and your tank is exactly what I pictured it to look like.
Could you tell me your tank specs, such as lighting, ferts besides the flourish tabs, filtration, etc. that would be very helpful to me.

Hi its roughly 29g, i only use the root tabs, the lighting is just one i picked up from my lfs which is 30" 20w and just said plants and fish colour, im using a fluval 105 canister filter with a homemade spraybar. Its regular building sand and granit rock i found at work along with driftwood from the fish store.

I did try liquid fert to start off but now i dont worry.

Thanks for the info. I'll probably message you with more questions when I think of them if you don't mind. The more I look at your tank, the more I love it. Absolutely beautiful.
