My Dirted 10

This tank was started in April 2012 with a gravel substrate (big gravel) and just Flourish Comprehensive for ferts. The plants struggled.

Now I'm fully dirted with a sand cap, sort of inching up from below 1/4 EI. I just added a second dose of macros. There's some Potassium deficiency in the stem plants. Actually, I think they're all stem plants right now. I'll be looking for some more attractive small plants.

Thanks for reading, and all advice welcome!


Here are a couple of pics, snails and algae and all:
