    Hello my name is Tristan and I am currently setting up a 46g bow planted tank. I used to have a 60g with a few plants here and there but I didn’t really know what I was doing. With the 46g I’ll be using the ADA substrate system along with implementing pressurized CO2. For filtration, I’m using the Fluval G3 canister filter. Not sure which plants I’ll be using yet but I will be doing the EI system for dosing. I’m a newbie to all this so any advice is encouraged. Thanks for viewing.

    Hi Tristan, welcome to the forum. Planning a new tank is always exciting and can put the foundation for many months or even years of enjoyment.

    Maybe you can start a journal and post there what you plan to do, keep it updated as you gather equipment, plant and see plants grow. Makes for a good memory lane plus it will help other members be more familiar with your tank.

    Hope to see you around.

    Thanks for reply. I do plan on making a Journal for the aquarium for the forum to see. Hopefully I will see your input on the progression!

    Tuned in for the journal and there is a wealth of knowledge here in the community to be explored. I'm still learning after about 2 years of really getting into planted tanks

    I've been into the hobby for a couple years but as far as planted tanks go, I'm a newbie. I've been searching around for a good community like this and I'm glad I found it.

    I'm pretty much in the same boat haha. I've kept fish for almost 6 years but planted tanks right at 2 years now and still consider myself a newbie to everything. Just recently got into high tech tanks and that really humbles you after keeping low tech tanks. I am also very grateful for the communities we have inside the hobby

    Welcome, check out Tropica's web site and especially their "easy" plant range; any of these species is a good choice for a newbie, they aren't too demanding and should help to make your new planted tank a success
