I am looking to get another Freshwater Tank going. I have a spare 10G tank and would like to to make it a Planted Tank, can you guys give me some advice on filtration and what type of Subtrate to go with and also Plants and inverts if possilbe that would help me get going?
Let me know
As far as filteration many people will recommend the aqua clear filters, I personalty have never used one.
You have a bunch of options for substrate depending on how much money you want to spend. If you want to get some really nice substrate then aqua soil is a good choice. If you are looking to save some money then pool filter sand if an option, root tabs may be necessary to grow some plants that are heavy root feeder.
The kind of plants you get will greatly depend on the lighting and fertilization you have. Do you want to get into co2
What kind of lights do you have/ looking to get?
