I am looking for a extra clear glass planted tank (2.5 feet) with canister filters and CO2 system. I have got multiple of opinions from various aquarium shops regarding the canister filters and glass thickness. I would like to know what should be the glass thickness for a 2.5 feet tank.Please advice me on tank glass thickness,lighting and also the canister filter specifications for a 2.5 feet extra clear tank. Also I would like to know how much kg of aqua soil is needed for a 2.5 feet tank. Also need advice on the lighting system ,the timers for the Co2 and the lighting . Need to know other than the aqua soil what all things required in making the planted aquarium . Please let me know the best option in the above things .

1.Extra clear glass is more than twice the cost of normal Glass.
2.For a 2.5 feet aquarium go with 10 mm (i am assuming that it will be 18 inches high) 12 mm if its 2 feet tall.
3.Go with a 800-1000 LPH cansiter filter
4.You will need 2 bags (18-20) liters of soil.
5.You can use Metal Halide (100W), or PLL's, (36W X 3) or LED's for lighting. This totally depends on the type of plants and scape you are planning.
6.Buy a New Co2 fire extinguisher cylinder, dont fall for the refurbished scam.
7.You will need a regulator, solenoid(optional) and needle valve.
8.Buy a good quality ceramic diffuser.
9.You can get plug and play digital timers from any of the online stores such as flipkart/ ebay/ amazon
10.You can Buy 5,6,7 in SP road for a cheaper price.
