    Hi everyone, this is my first thread on this forum. I really wanted to start a new high-tech tank for a while now but iv just been to scared to spend so much money and then have something go wrong. I'm starting this journal so I can get advice and to post my progress if and when I decide to start my desk tank( hopefully be the end of this year).

    The plan:

    What I have:

    Aqueon 30 hob filter

    Finnex fugeray 12 in light

    Dry ferts macro and micro

    What I plan to have:

    11.9" cube low iron and rimless

    Co2 art regulator
    paintball tank

    ADA aquasoil amazonia

    Plants, rocks, wood and shrimp of coarse!

    Ok, so this tank will be sitting on my desk so I can look at it everyday, unlike my previous tanks which were to big to be on my desk and mostly out of site.

    My questions:

    Will this size tank be supported by my desk for a long time?

    Is this a reasonable size to go high-tech?

    Is there any thing else I should know? I've had low tech tanks before but never high-tech and fully planted.

    Any and all advice is welcome!

    Any size can go high tech or low tech.

    Plant HEAVY at first.
    This will leach ammonia to cycle your tank.

    If you think high light and CO2 differentiate high v/s low, then any tank can be high tech.
    The only limitation is plant selection. Stems in high tech, short tank will mean a lot of constant trimming.
    ADA Amazonia is what I would recommend.
