Hi guys I’m new to this and this is the first forum that I have ever posted on. I’m absolutely loving my new hobby and I’m going all out with my new tank. I however need some advice and would love some feedback. My new tank will be +- 140L and I’m looking at doing a cool scape for a beginner, but to add to that I would like to incorporate a bonsai tree growing on an island on the scape. I have spent the past month researching and there is so much to consider but I have come up with the following. ADA substrate seems to be king, lights are crazy expensive, and canister filters are confusing. Does anyone have any recommendations here? I also don’t really want to mission with CO2 but should I consider it? all I can say is that this hobby is addictive and expensive. So any advice would be appreciated.
