Setting up my first planted tank

Postby Clb019 » Sun Sep 17, 2017 8:40 am

Hi all;

Wondering if anyone has any advice on how to aquascape for the first time such as what substrate is best and what considerations to make.

I currently have a 64l tropical tank and am going to upgrade to a 240l at the beginning of December, so have the scope to let the new tank establish for as long as required before moving any fish into it.

This is my first foray into planted tanks (currently have plants growing in small bogwood logs in my tank but nothing planted) so please excuse my ignorance - I'm in the process of learning and reading as many books as I can on the subject but usually find others with fish will know best.

Looking to make up a community tank probably centred around gourami (simply because I love them!).

Any advice on equipment, substrate or plants would be great :)
