    CO2 for Micro Tanks

    Hi all! I am setting up a 1.5G micro nano tank and have been trying to find a co2 system (afforable) sufficient for it. I have been using my neo co2 diy set for my 3G and realized that the output is too much, which means it would be even worse for a 1.5G, especially because I plan to have...

    First aquascape, my plant choices (ok?)

    I have a 5 gallon tank which will be low tech. No CO2 and a clip on led light. I’m not sure how bright it will be but probably low to keep algae away. I have a dimmer that so I can adjust the brightness. I’ve been reading about low tech plants a lot and I think I’ve finally settled on the three...
