Ok, i have been doing a lot of research this weekend and reading through the numerous posts on this website. I have picked out a few key componets that will go into my aquarium and this is what i have found.
Lighting - Current USA Nova Extreme TS x2 FW
36" 2x39 = 78 watts or 48" 2x54 watt = 108 watts
Filter - Hagen Fluval 305 Multi-Stage Canister Filter or
Rena Filster XP3 Canister Filter and maybe a HOB
Heater - (2)Ebo Jager Heater 150/200 watt or (2) Hydor Theo 200 watt
I am going to have a 50/55 gallon planted tropical community tank. Just a few of the plants that are beginner/low light plants i like are -
Red Melon Sword
Will most likely add a DIY CO2
Possible Fish that go in when ready to stock will be -
6-8 Zebra Danios
6-8 various Tetra
4-6 Cory Cats
I have also purchased a spectacular piece of driftwood that i fell in love with. Also going to create some caves or walls with rocks that will provide cover and layering. Is this setup going to be the right way to go? Or does anyone see any potential problems? Also any info on gravel/substrate that will work good with these type of plants. Thank you for any feedback/info as i would really love to get this right the first time and avoid any frustration/wasted time and money.
