Here is my latest pic of my tank with my Current Satellite+ FW LED. I've had the lighting unit for about three months. I love it. My plants grow like crazy. I just trimmed and replanted the ludwigia on the right, but I know I need to thin out the dwarf sag. I've got more bacopa australis than I know what to do with. This picture was taken while running the 1st dynamic cloudy day setting.

Looks like I can only upload one pic per post from my iPad. Here is a different angle and using the dawn lighting. These are just phone pics so forgive the quality, please.

This used to be my 30 gallon high light tank. I got tired of all the intensive maintenance, so I got a Satellite LED+ and now i'm growing crypts, anubias, congo fern, and some moss. I have changed the title of my 30 gallon high tech journal and started journal entries about the rescaped lower light version under the Satellite+.

Sweet looking photo! I like the idea of low maintenance once in awhile. I'm a little biased to high tech, but you made a very compelling low tech build there. There's a good amount of contrasts and the colors pop well, especially with that black background. Thanks for sharing!

Well this is still sorta a semi-high tech tank. I'm still running CO2 at 30ppm, and instead of fertilizing the water column, i'm doing substrate tabs once monthly. This is about a month and a half of growth. I loved my high light tank, but my clinical rotation schedule didn't always provide me the time to do the necessary maintenance when it needed to be done, mainly sticking to the strict fert schedule and trimming every week always made a mess and was time consuming. It ended up getting neglected. There's more room for error with this set up right now, not to mention fewer raging algae problems. I can now look at my aquarium without thinking about all the maintenance i need to do on it, which is a nice feeling, especially when I have boards coming up to worry about studying for.
