I'm gonna start my first tropical community tank
only a 20 gal
since I'm not allowed any bigger :P so I just bought the 20 gal
at walmart before I knew anything about it... its the one my two fancies are in now, but I'm giving one back to the pet store, and moving the sick one to another tank, or just waiting it out to see if he even makes it
It has a tank cover like this http://smartshopbuy.com/images/Anima...cent-delux.jpg
where I lift off the light section and just change the lightbulbs.
Again, I'll have the tank empty before I start so i'll be going through all the cycling and stuff, and buying new lights and a new hood if needed. Right now they're just your normal aquarium lights, and I'm wondering if I can just buy lightbulbs strong enough for a 20 gal
that would give medium light, or can you recommend a new lighting system that isn't outrageously priced? lol
I know nothing about plants so this will be a long process lol
do you know anything about the( Lilaeopsis mauritiana) Mircro-sword narrow leaf plant?
I just saw it as a carpet and its so pretty! What would I need to keep that kind?
