      What are those cool looking black and white fish with the Riccia?!

      And I think it would look great with Altums!

      Matt, Apologize it was a bit off topic. But what a plant! I know, I know, it's a bit large for the average tank, but still! Quite a few years ago there was a great article about it, I believe in Aquatic Gardeners magazine. I hope it will be available over here sometimes soon. Jerry

      Hello Lynn, Thank you so much for your interest in the article and the tanks. Please the answers to your questions below and let me know if you have anymore questions. 1) We do not have one set size tank that we use, but typically they are 10 gallons and larger. 2) The brackets needed is all dependent on the type/brand of lighting you use. There are some universal brackets, but it is best to check with the manufacturer specs first. Aquaray by Tropical Marine Centre has some great brackets that are very easy to use. 3) Aquatropic recommends using Tropical Marine Centre's Grobeam lighting. For our display tanks we use the "Grobeam 500 Natural Daylight." GroBeam uses 6500K natural daylight CREE® XP-E Compact PowerLEDs* emitting over 800 lumens, making it especially suitable for planted aquariums and for enhancing the colors of your tropical fish. 4) CO2 is used because it is the main nutrient for plants, however, the amount of CO2 needed is dependent on the plant species. Tropica has great CO2 systems. We recommend Tropica's System 60 for all starter aquariums up to 60L. For nano-aquariums, regardless the level of ambition, we recommend System Nano. I hope this information is useful
