    Looking to get back in the hobby....

    Itís been a long long time since Iíve had a planted tank but I am thinking about starting up a 20 gal tank. I have lots of questions haha! I was thinking about doing a low tech tank and was wondering what kind of substrate should I use and what plants would be good choices? I have a aquatic life edge led light I had planned on using on this tank and was going to look into buying a canister filter, something like the sun sun 602b. Any and all opinions, help and advice would be appreciated!

    Here’s an article, hopefully helpful...

    There are tons of aquatic soils out there now... really depends on what u want to do...

    Also, what kinda livestock u wish to keep greatly effects the kind of filtration you’ll need...
