Here is my newly rescaped 5 gallon lowtech tank..
I'm still not satisfied with the way plants are placed..I want it to look more natural at the same time well organized..the plants are just everywhere..

|Mikeygmzmg||Here is my 10 gallon. Not sure if it's low tech tho? It has co2 lol and a finnex planted plus light. I started it 3 weeks ago.|

|aquafella||Here's another trivia question..lmao I have this slim HOB filter that I got from a LFS 380L/H and I'm worried because it's too strong and is disturbing my new substrate and uprooting some of my plants..can anyone post a pic of what filtration is best for planted tanks? or if I can do something to slower the output current? i have read some using soap dish under the output of the HOB..any other strategy?|

Heres my 10 gal. What do you guys think? Any suggestions on a plant to hide/block the heater and intake. CPDs hiding at the back of the tank.

|HDBenson||Nope that's why I'm/we're here! If you can. I would remove even more than half if not all of the gravel. It just seems you don't want to remove it which is fine as long as you take out some of it.|

|aquafella||Thanks again HDBenson..you have helped me so much..hope you won't get tired of answering questions here..|

|HDBenson||Aquafella. That should be fine with no cap on top. I still suggest removing about half of your gravel. Maybe an inch(3cm) of gravel then top it with the ISTA.|

Not final yet..
Here is my current set up but I'm planning to rescape it and add some healthy substrate for my plants on top of my gravel..
|03-27-2015 02:59 AM|
Kind of substrate..
Thank you for answering my questions HDBenson..just so you know, this is the kind of substrate I'm planning to put on top of my gravel..this is ok right?

|Kylesaltandpepper||This might be a little off topic but I was wondering how much ppm of KH2PO4, KNO3, K, and plantex csm+b you need for a low tech 55g.|

|Sparklescale||This is my new 7.5g Finnex. It has been set up since the middle of Feb. but, I just re-scaped it a few days ago. I have a fine sifted top-soil base, topped with Flourite black sand. The rocks are some soft sandstone from New Mexico. I'm not sure what to expect from this Finnex LED light, so, if it is too much and I start getting algae, I will start dosing Glute.|
