Wanted to get some guidance as I'm starting my very first planted tank.
60x40x40cm 8mm Iwagumi tank with hair grass, Cuba and Monte carlo.
I've already bought the tank, light and filter (Dophin Cf600).
Can advice on what should I get for the soil instead?
In my list right now:
ADA Bacter 100
ADA Power Sand
ADA Aqua Soil-Amazonia 9L as the base
ADA Amazonia Powder for the surface
Anything I missed out? Should I have a co2 system for my setup? Drystart or not?
Will like to get all the items required this weekend in 1 shot as CMCO right now. Don't want to travel Sana sini.
Welcome to the club!
1. yes ADA amazonia II is good.
2. i would not bother about power sand and bacter
power sand is mainly use for heavily planted tank. Bacter is to speed up bacteria growth. i would let the bacteria grow slowly (and save the rm 100). If you or ur friend have another tank, can get it from there .
3. CF 600 is good size, load it with filter media ( i mean those bio ring etc) as it dont come with it.
4. Glass lily pipe?
5 Tension gon
6 what rocks are you using? any picture which inspire you?
7 Yes COs is recommended . you seems serious then get the proper aluminium tank set, with soleniod.
8. fertilizer... may be later after a few weeks.
so do dry start, but i do you have patience for 2-3 weeks?
