Planted Tank Obsessed

My first and arguably best planted tank had a simple large-diameter gravel substrate. It was in a 29 gallon Eclipse tank, no CO2, no high-powered lights, and no fert dosing at all.
After a couple months, my Amazon was flowering like mad and I had to trim the Val and banana plant every week. This is the also the one planted tank that I never had an algae problem with, even though it housed three pepper corries, six platies, three angels, and three clown loaches.
