Why you want to start off a heavily planted tank: My 3 larger tanks are moderately planted and look great! I'm really wanting to do it with my smaller tanks as well, but all the extra plants I have go back into my larger tanks so I can make them more heavily planted
What's your lighting? 1 10w 6500k CFL in the hood
I should add, that this is a 2.5, but I have 4 of them that I'd really love to plant, all are just as sparsely planted as this one is. When I change the substrate out on the big tanks to NPT style, I'll be changing it on these as well.
