View Full Version : Still planning

I setup my 40gallon breeder the other day..I have a 30 gallon wet/dry as filtration. Regular gravel. No light fixture yet because i only bought the glass cover.


1.Can I support plants in a tank with wet/dry? I saw somewhere it was too much oxygen being added to the water for the plants..?

2.Will a light fixture be efficient sitting atop the glass hood? Will enough light get to the plants?

3.The gravel isn't uniform. What would be some recommended plants for gravel?

1. Yes it will not be a problem for the plants, it will make adding CO2 harder if you go that way.

2. Loss from the glass would be minimal, if the glass is clean.

3. If it is fine grained it should work fine, not as well as a speciality substrate but you can grow an array of plants.
