This is a great article. And it would be an even greater article if the author hadn't felt the need to include this paragraph near the beginning:
"While I can help you with aquascaping a planted tank, I cannot go into the technical aspects of keeping and maintaining a planted tank here. You must research that separately. You need to know all about the perfect lighting for plants, as they will not grow if you do not have adequate lighting. You also need to know more about the correct soil to, as well as fertilising, as fish poop alone does not deliver enough trace elements and minerals for plants to thrive. And lastly you need to know about CO2 dosing, as this is a main element in maintaining a thriving planted tank. I have recently heard that there is a new bottled product on the market that lets you add CO2 without having to use a doser, but have not had any feedback on its success. That having been said, let’s continue."
There are at least three points in that paragraph that are patently false. It seems that the author acknowledged that there were areas that he/she were not familiar with, yet attempted - poorly - to give the impression that he/she still knew what he/she was referencing. If i ignore those half dozen lines, I find I enjoy the write-up much more.
In any case, with the single exception of that one paragraph, excellent write-up!
