I bought 2 HMPKs a few days ago and I'm interested in setting up some nice planted tanks for them.
Atm I'm a bit tight on cash so I don't think I can afford fancy lighting or substrate, so I'm looking for something low maintenance.
What I have in my 3 gallon right now (which is a Marineland Crescent
) is a thin layer of white sand and the LED light it came with. I think I also have some Seachem Flourish somewhere...
Currently I'm considering corkscrew vals, however...
I have no idea if the LED light would be sufficient enough for the plants? Anyone with this tank have any experience?
I'm also wondering if the white sand by itself is okay?
