GisheryGoodness Posted May 23, 2022 Share Posted May 23, 2022 So I decided to dive into the world of planted tanks for my latest tank. I'm fairly good at resarrching, i thought. I knew I would need a stronger light than what is provided with the tank but what I've found as suggested are for over the top of the tank and for the fish I will have in the tank eventually, I'll definitely need a lid. I'm worried it's getting to where I can't afford levels. I can manage a light but I don't think I can afford a whole new hood as well. I used fluval stratum and I don't remember what the sand mixture I added sort of on top was called but was suggested by the lady at Petsmart who was very helpful and informative and even showed me pictures of her own planted tanks. I grabbed all low level light plants but I think I need some more plants and possibly a cholla wood log like I have in my 5.5 gal Betta tank if I can, not sure what else. Really wanna keep it natural, other than ya know baby Groot. I mean he is technically a tree. I'm feeling a bit down and worried that my plants might not grow if I can't get a new light and lid though so suggestions are welcome, and how did I do for a first timer? Oh its a 29 gallon tank 18"H by 30"L 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
