    Im setting up a 40 gallon long high tech tank.

    4- T5 Aquaticlife



    1-Rose Bulb (5K)

    Lights will be hanging 8 inches then move down to 6 inches when needed.

    Im running red fluorite and eco complete on top.

    Im going to use driftwood to have a Amano look coming out of the tank.

    Im going to be EI dosing

    Pressurized co2- cant decide inline or in the tank.

    Running a fluval 206 with DIY spray bar and a powerhead on pulse mode to just move flow for the length of the tank.

    Plant list

    1. dwarf hair grass

    2. Anubias (variety)

    3. crypts (red and green wendti)

    4. Rotala Indica

    5. Ludwigia repens and sp. Red

    6. AR mini

    7. Christmas Moss

    8. Ammannia sp. 'Bonsai'

    My question is my water out of tap is 8.2. I tested my water in my current tank with the co2 going and all its at 7.4 the plants I listed will be okay in the conditions? My KH is high at 12dKH which is crazy. I am looking for help. Anyone I would like it. Plus I do 50% wc weekly.

    Also what is recommended for the co2 diffuser.

    Thank you,
