    as i posted above the best solution for that would be a bottled water solution. 10 gallons start and 5 gallons a week should be too much of a cost. also there are RO kits but that will run you 100$ start up and big money down the line.

    edit: maybe its possible to use an activated carbon filter (like britta) to remove it? if you have a copper test kit then its worth looking into at least...

    sorry i missed that post. If using bottled water will mean can have shrimp and snails then I will go for that, I can get it quite cheaply from close by in large quantities anyway so it shouldn't pose a problem to me

    thats good. what do you plan on using for a filter? shrimp have a nasty tendency to migrate to filter intakes and end up as soup lol...

    at the moment I'm looking into getting a Fish Box 40cm Tank by Interpet because of my budget so i guess it will be one of their own brand filters. But depending on my finances when i decide to get the tank (I'll be getting it in around 3 months time, i want to get as much research done as possible before i do) I may get the larger 60cm tank

    that looks like a decent bigginer set up. make sure you use a heater as you will need it. the filter on that looks like its a trickle style filter that sucks up some water and filters it above the tank. if it comes with carbon inserts you might want to look into a way to hack it a bit and use some ceramic media. im sure we can help you do that easly with some picks.

    and you will need a filter guard or something to stop the shrimp from going into the filter. i used a filter media bag and some string to stop my shrimp...

    I'm trying to find specific detail about the filter in it so if i find the specifications for it I will post them. Also the set up doesn't come with an air pump for any aeration additions, should i get that separately or not bother?

    The air bubbler is not needed in many cases. If that is a trickle filter like i think it will airate the entire tank fine. That and the plants you have.

    That brings up something else tho.... What kind of light does it have? Not all lights are for plants ya know.

    it uses two 18 watt bulbs by interpret, one that simulates normal light and the other one creates a moonlight setting, how good they will be for the plants I do not know. I have had success with growing plants in a tarantula habitat with a lamp that has a bulb in it for animals that prefer low light levels but encourages plant growth so if the tank lighting doesn't work i may be able to direct some of the light from the lamp so the plants in the aquarium can use it.

    Moonlight is useless for plants. 18 watts for 40 liters isn't bad.

    Well if i understand correctly. Its 2 18w (36 total) in a tank thats about 16g thats more than 2 watts per gallon. If they have seperate switches i would put 1 bulb thats around 6500k (thats for plant growth) and one that is 5000k or less. The plant growth bulb should stay pn about 6-8 hrs a day (limiting that to a few hrs will limit algae growth). And the other bulb can be on any time you want to veiw the fish.


    Hope none of that confused u. Its not as hard as it seems lol.

    Edit; i think that tank uses power compact lights (thats what it looks like to me). They will be a bit harder to find besides from the interpet place. And the blue bulb they give u will surely cause algae. It looks like an antic bulb those are ment for salt water and are useless for fresh lol.
