    yes, your lightning is good for a planted tank. Dont care about your english, I´m sure we all understand you ;)
    Eheim is allways good and it is better with Co2 then without. What yre your plans for your first scape?

    I want to make a scape with lots of driftwood. This is my insperation : http://www.aquatic-gardeners.org/ADA2006_images/smaller/7.jpg .
    Saturday I can go get my new aquarium book. With much information about plants. Thats make it easyer. But i have no idea wat plants i have to use. This three plants are nice : Pogostemon helferi,Java fern ,Vallisneria nana. Maybe i gonna use riccia fluitans to.

    The best for your first scape would be to copy another one.
    I´m sure after you have bought your new book, you will be able to ID all the plants that were used in the scape you linked, if not - ASW will help you ;)

    he is the only one that online 24 hours :)) don't worry people like picture, once you post a photo, many of them will come and join the discussion :))

    What is the size of aqua-40? I goggle and it mention 33l x 30d x 37h cm, not sure correct or not. For this size of tank 11Watt is too low, only limited species of plant can grow.

    You can tie Anubias nana 'petite' on the wood and Java fern. Also tie a bit of moss here and there on the branches. Blyxa japonica or Crypt wentii in between right side wood
