Introduction

My first foray into the space of planted aquariums.

Background

The tank itself was acquired second hand from an acquaintance. The tank came in with a top filter powered by a Sunsun HQJ-500G 2.5W power head.

Filtration

Filtration is through a built in top filter than came with the tank. A Power head draws water from the tank and does both pumping into the filter and recirculation into the tank. The filter has cotton wool for mechanical and biological filtration. The filtered water drops back into the tank from an in built spray bar

Inspiration & Goals

Absolute start was to grow some easy plants with low tech setup. Low lights - a single LED light fixture to start with.
