Alrighty, so since I unfortunately cannot upgrade my 20g while I live with my parents, i will work on making it more suitable for my current fish.
Firstly, ditching the HOB and going to get an Eheim canister. Getting a new light too, gonna be the Finnex Planted+ 24/7.
It’s gonna be blackwater. Lots of stuff will be sitting and rotting such as IAL, bark, seed pods, leaves, stem, etc. Will cheat a little and stain using fresh wood and rooibos tea. Will also be using Seachem Discus Buffer to lower pH and soften water.
It’s going to be a low light planted tank. Anubias, swords, crypts, Java ferns, etc.
