Those who have planted tanks, do you add fertilizer, carbon,.. etc?
You can try the Walstad method. Use organic soil under a layer of gravel or sand cap.

The organic soil provide sufficient fert for 1 year plus minus for the plant. You can add clay and other additives to soil prior capping with another substrate to make it last longer.

The decomposition in the soil provides CO2 for plant.

I tried before and my plants grew very well with pearling. However, it gets really messy if you try to rescape. The soil also have a tendency to leech and make the water brownish. But activated carbon can remove the color.

ljohn78,

Can I suggest you edit your first post to include useful links for everyone? For a start, here are some recommendations:

Aquarium Stocking Calculator

Design your tank setup

Hi,

I'm looking to set up a nano reef tank. I only got experience in FW tanks.

Any shop to recommend for SW stuffs? Looking at fluval tank but they seems to cost a bomb.

I've looked around but can't find any cheaper with similar specs. Know any place?

I tend to keep small fishes. Currently have a few barbs and 1 betta

Black bear algae is due to unstable or low co2.

Keep Siamese algae eater. Make sure you buy true SAE. They are the only fish that eat bba.

u shld not advise him to keep SAE to reduce the alage, instead u shld advise him to keep the tank balanced.
