tanong ko lang po kung ano basics ng planted tank

1. recommended tank size
2. meron po bang special lighting requirement or pwede na yung flourescent light na gamit sa bahay?
3. meron po bang water treatement requirement like anti-chlorine
4. anong fertilizer po ang kailangan?
5. kailangan pa po ba ng oxygen and filter? anong klase po?

thanks in advance,
Cris

hindi ako expert dito pero I'll give a shot lang.

1. recommended tank size
10g would be a good start.

2. meron po bang special lighting requirement or pwede na yung flourescent light na gamit sa bahay?
depende naman eto sa mga balak mo na plants, meron kasi low tech(low light requirement), medium at high lights requirement. if you want some carpeting plants you will need high lights.

3. meron po bang water treatement requirement like anti-chlorine
if you are using NASAWA yes required na mag anti chlorine ka, saka aging ng water pag nag iistart para mag build up yung BB(beneficial bacteria sa tank mo, you can use cheap price labyrinth fishes para dito,)

4. anong fertilizer po ang kailangan?
depende sayo yan, kung gusto mo talagang maganda tubo ng plants mo you can use ferts, pero hindi yung pag nakapagtanim ka ferts agad, I think 2weeks after mo mag set up lahat before ka pwede gumamit ng ferts.

5. kailangan pa po ba ng oxygen and filter? anong klase po?
no need oxygen, you need Carbon Dioxide, which is what plant use for photosynthesis. you can search sa youtube paano gumawa ng DIY CO2 Reactor. read lang ng read before ka mag start. dahil din need ng plants yung CO2, dapat iwasan yung breaking of surface tension kaya dapat minimize yung water agitation para hindi makatakas CO2

About sa filter, usually ginagamit HOB(hang on back), canister filter or external filter, saka yung internal filter. this three filter do a minimal water agitation if used properly kasi. ako gamit ko internal filter. pero the best yata yung canister.

1. yung highlights po ba pwedeng dalawa or tatlong flourescent lamp na nakaparallel or dapat UV light? meron bang UV light? hehe

mas maganda po sir pag proportion yung distribution ng light. no UV lights needed sir, depende din po kasi sa laki ng tank mo yung need na wattage. Very Happy flourescent lamp lang din gamit namin, nag uuse kami reflector para yung liwanag talagang bagsak sa tank at di masayang..

2. plano ko po plants lang walang fish.. pano ung aging ng water?

mas maganda siguro bro pag may fish or shrimps, kasi nakaka dagdag din yung popo nila as ferts saka pag walang fish mosquito will lay eggs on your tank.

about po sa water aging. pwede po ito ma skip kung meron kang filter medias sa ibang aquarium, to do the skipping. you the filter media on the new tank para yung beneficial bacteria dumami. 3days would be enough for this process, pero kung wala..

this takes time po. 2weeks or more. Pag nahugasan mo na po yung substrate mong gagamitin at nalagay na sa tank.. punu-in mo lng po yun tank mo ng water and let it be there for 2weeks with pump/filter running. mas maganda din pag may mga test fish kayong ilagay kasi need yung ammonia para dumami yung beneficial bacteria.. Sorry po hindi ko ma explain ng maayos kasi hindi ako expert sa planted. hehehe.. pero tanong lang ng tanong try ko talagang masagot. Very Happy

about sa lighting meron po sila sinusunod na rule which is 2 watts per gallon (wpg) sa highlight 3wpg and up. depende pa rin ito kung gano kalalim ang tank nyo. mas malalim mas malakas na ilaw kasi nababawasan ang intensity ng light as your tank go deeper. also the wpg rule dosent apply sa nano tank. example i have 5 gallon tank hindi sapat ang 15 watts. i use super LED kaya sakto sakin ang 22watts.

use 6500K or daylight flourescent.

another factor to consider is temperature usually 26-29C pag mas mataas may chance na matunaw ang plants mo. moss thrives in lower temperature. para mabawasan ang temperature mo use fan na nakatutok sa water surface.
