I've always been a bit wary of having a planted tank. I've had all sorts of reef setups and species specific saltwater tanks before, but the freshy planted tanks always scared me. So I'm deciding to tackle my fears. I cleaned my SW 29 Biocube that has been down for about 3 months. (Can't go long before the tank bug bites you!;D) Filled with 15lbs Black Seachem Fluorite, 5 pieces of driftwood from a friends established tank, and RO. A few questions for you guys, and a request you check out my stock list. 1. Do you plant while the tank is in it's cycling phase? 2. 10k or 6700.. discuss 3. Dosing Co2 or using an injector? Proposed Stock List *Keep in mind I want a more natural Japanese style aquascape and livestock feel. 6-10 - Gold Cobra Guppies 2 - Neon Blue or Dwarf Gouramis 3-4 - Glass Shrimp 2-4 - Mystery snails (love these guys had 'em before) And a ton of dwarf plants. Maybe only 2-3 species to stay with the style? I'll need help with these. I want something that will carpet well and not be too demanding. I'll take some photos as soon as the water clears. Thanks guys!
