I just joined the Barr report and am looking forward to learning from all of you. I kept a 60g marine aquarium 30 years ago. My work prevented me from continuing the hobby until recently , when I became interested in recent advances, particularly planted freshwater nano tanks. So I bought a Fluval Spec 5; added ADA aqua soil, hardscape and multiple plants. Tank is completely cycled so added 2 nerite snails and 5 cherry shrimp. I upgraded the stock light to a Finnex 7/24 hlc. Except for a little hair algae, all is going well. I have ordered a Nano co2 kit from co2 supermarket and will add it next week. Then will add a few tetras To complete the setup. I have been reading as much technical info as I could find but would appreciate any advice you could offer. Thanks
