I had a long talk to my nearest aquarium shop recently about NPTs and he has quite a lot of beautiful tank setups as well as a few for customers, I was discussing my plan to start a new NPT and he started recommending ADA tanks and substrates if i was going to start a NPT. He showed me a few of his setups as well and it looks pretty complex even with a CO2 system.
I'm absolutely new to aquariums and owning bettas. I have zero knowledge when i first started (which i regretted) but i'm trying to learn about everything i can as well as water testing. Is ADA good? Would it be recommended and any good if i was going to start a NPT?
