The *BEST* (Tom Barr's) low-tech start-up tank method. Easy to read beginner's guide!
in all honesty, this isnt convincing me that this is the "best" anything.
In reality, i understand that a lot of that had to do with plant choices... but it really went from eye catching to drab.
I believe the first pic is with co2 and higher lighting but then converted to low tech...don't quote me on that though, but if you think about it, high tech is obviously more striking than low tech.
