"Low Tech". I am confused.
Before I say anything please let me say that it is NOT my intention to step on any toes or anything like that. I am just a little confused by the forum name of "low tech" when it is seems to be more high tech in a lot of cases.
I am wondering what the definition of "low tech" is as it relates here because when I hear low tech I am thinking of a simple tank that requires little maintenance and has very minimal filtration but more often none at all. Also, to me anyways, low tech means dirted capped by some form of material such as gravel to hold down the base. There is no ferting because the "dirt" contains the nutrients already and there is certainly no CO2 added. The only real addition to a low tech tank is a small powerhead to provide some movement.
I am not complaining but the Low Tech forum seems more like a catch all for all things planted and I was just wondering if maybe a sub forum or something would help to separate the two because a true low tech tank is kind of a different animal than a standard planted tank. Please dont get me wrong, there is alot of awesome information in the low tech forum concerning planted tanks and I enjoy spending time there but IMO, and its just that, my opinion, a separation might be a good idea.
