otmmy created the topic: My First planted Tank

Hello all this is my first planted aquarium and I had a few questions. Will I need c02,what type of lighting should I use,Is there a better way of arranging the plants so they grow better,and how much flow should I have? I would love any tips and advice you could give me.

all those questions depend on what plants you have and what you want to achieve, so list your plants we can go from there. Also look farther down in the plant section there are 3 posts that i wrote as a jumping off point for beginners in the planted tank there called planted tank basics 1,2,&3

That cannabis plant sure looks like it's flourishing! :P

Don't mind me, I know nothing of aquatic plants. Regardless, that tank looks good. How long has it been like that?

Without knowing names I can't help much, different plants have different lighting and co2 needs. I recommend posting pics of your plants on theplantedtank.net they should be able top help you figure out what you have
