Ok so I just started this tank not long ago & now I am about overflowing with everything & not sure where I should plant what or what should not go in the tank.. With plants I am an definite newb so here goes..
Tank is a 20 long so its 30" x 12" x 12", but only filled up to about 9".
Filter is a Marineland Duetto DJ-100
internal filter with the tank return re-routed to the other end so there is always a light current.
Heater is an 100w Elite Submersible
Lighting is still in shipping (will be here next week) is a Aqualight T5 Freshwater Dual Lamp Fixture, 30-Inch
Substrate is currently a fairly course gravel
Tank is also divided into 4 parts so each is about 7.5" wide
So then for the plantlife..
Amazon sward (small) x2 or 3
wysteria (small) x3
4 leaf clover (small) x2
Unknown Betta Bulb's (came in a pack from petco) x3
Red Ludwiga (medium/large) x10+
Also have Duck Weed & salvinia floaters.
If anything here will also survive on crap light My sorority has a MarineLand single bright LED bar and black sand substrate so I wouldn't mind putting some in there too.
My Goal is simply happy fish & low maintenance. I am going to be pulling the tank apart next week (or maybe this weekend) to replace the tube running from one side to the other since currently the tube is 1/2" OD & I should be using 1/2" ID. So essentially with the flow maxed its very light. I would rather have the option to turn the flow down as desired then not be able to turn it up at all. If I have to get new substrate I would like to before then so i can knock it all out at once.
