New to planted aquariums.
I have always had aquariums. I had a saltwater tank with just live rock, fish, shrimp, snails, and crabs, but had to give it away because it became too time consuming for me. Now all I have is a ten gallon fresh water with 2 cory cats, and a gourami. I don't want to add any more fish, because the gourami is aggressive to anything that doesn't just hang out on the bottom of the tank. I had an angel fish for months, but it just up and died a few months ago. (That was the only fish that the gourami wasn't mean to for some reason. They were added at the same time. I'm assuming that was why)
Anyways, I really want to make the move from artificial plants to a planted aquarium. I just have some questions.
1) What equipment will I need? What light is best? What substrate is good for a planted aquarium?
2) Will my gourami or cory cats bother the plants?
3) What plants will be good for this size tank?
Thanks in advance for all your answers! =]
