Nice looking tank!

You should probably do more water changes to reduce build up of stuff in the water.

Thanks for liking the tank, but there is some bad news.

I have not had the time to keep up with the growth in this tank, and the tank is now a overgrown mess.

My daughter want the tank out of the room, i am thinking of maybe replace this tank with my daughters that is a little bit bigger.

But i am not shure, the cube tank is looking good in the livingroom.

It's organic potting mix like Maricle grow organic choice. That is what I use in my dirt tank. I will have to say that I do maintence about twice a month or so becuase of the size of my tank. The reason you don't want to clean the bed is because the nutrients from the waste refertilize the garden soil so you don't have to change it as much.

I used to have a ton of tanks running high tech. I have one NPT tank, and I am kicking myself for not trying it sooner. The tank looks great!

Update

Hello!

I have a update for my daughters dirt tank.

I was going to take i down beacuse my daughter is bored with the tank. I started the teardown by taking out the filter, but on the way i decided to try out a no tech tank.

My daughters dirt tank have been running about a month with no filter, circulation or heater, only light. And to my suprise everything is thriving, plants grows good and the fishes i looking good.

Any one else that run no tech tanks?
