New here and to aquarium life
My name is Dee and I've had a 46gal bow-front with cichlids for about a year now. I'm now wanting to set up a 40gal planted tank but have no idea as to where to start. Any input will help. I don't expect to do this overnight, I know it takes time and is a delicate process. I eventually want to add a couple of German rams although I hear they are very hard to keep. I mainly need to know what substrate, Light and type of plants are good for beginners.

Welcome to the forum
You will have better luck asking your questions in the planted tank section of the forum
You can also find great information in the planted tank journels here as wellIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

Hello and welcome.When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.
