In planning on setting up a new tank soon. I have a tank without the lid, so I am looking for a quality lid that will work well for a planted tank. Are there any lids that work better than others? I also am ordering an aquaclear 20, so I need a spot to put that. I was thinking of using Eco-complete black as my substrate. Will plants root in that easily? And should I put other substrate over it? Also what are some recommendations for plants, and hardscape items. I always see these cool knotty looking branch like things in people's pictures. What is that? Lol.
Thanks for the help. :)
