Hi folks. I'm from Malaysia and I am planning to start a small planted tank about 30 liters with only java moss and ferns. Will start by cycling the tank before introducing fish. Thanks for the informative articles btw!'


Question: Do I need a CO2 (plan to diy one) system for a 30liter tank, I I am just planning to plant willow moss and java ferns.. and maybe a large plant. Reason being I do not want to overdose my fish with CO2 as its a small tank!

If you are just going ferns and mosses, you will not need CO2. This also depends on your light levels.. But since the moss and java fern (roots mustn't be buried) take up nutrients from the water column, you can always use liquid fertilizer if you think you need it.
