# Ideas for 1st order Non-Linear DE

I don't know very much about DEQs, can someone point me in the right direction for solving this?

Note: $\phi$ is a function of another variable and C_1, C_2 are constants.

$$-\phi ^2 \cdot C_1=\frac{1}{1+\phi ' ^2}+C_2$$

I have tried trig sub, but I didn't get anywhere.

Regards.

EDIT: The LaTeX on this website doesn't appear to like me, though I don't understand why.
