|Sparklescale||This is my little newbie tank...about 2 cups volume. It has a dirt bottom capped with pool filter sand, one piece of New Mexico sandstone and planted with Pennywort, Ludwigia repensxarcuata, Anubias nana petite, Lilaeopsis macloviana, Hydrocotle tripartite, and frogbit. These pics were taken right after I set this up, so, waiting to see what kind of growth it gets. This gets side light from my 2g jar.|

Tank with far more moss on the driftwood... the CPD's have dwindled to 7, but the 7 yellow forktail furcatus have become very healthy. ..
I guess because I am using only RO water for topoff , the KH also fell to below 2 and a subsequent ph crash happened resulting in my amano shrimp population also crashing down to 3 sorry looking shrimp...
I added baking soda slowly to to raise it to 5 but it's again lowered to 3 over a month...
Before this I finally changed about 50% of the water with RO over the course of several weeks to reduce the gh to 16 and my ph remains at 8.0 but I recently acquired a tds meter and it's reading 1020ppm...
My other low tech 5.5 gallon also reads over 1000ppm but it has a thriving RCS colony and very healthy amano shrimp... so who knows...
the only difference between these tanks is aquasoil malaya vs flourite black sand and no fish vs fish

That's an awesome piece of driftwood.

My 7.5, only has a 12" stingray for light.

doesn't seem to compare to most on here, but I figured i'd share my low tech tank.
27g cube, estimated PAR of 30 at the level of the substrate. dose excel flourish daily, Fe and trace after weekly changes of roughly 20%
a young tank, running for 2 months. various Crypts with some Ludwigia stems. still working out the details on livestock; just a few tetras and RCS now, looking to focus on invertebrates, but still learning about what all is compatible. also combating hydra ...

This is my 120 gallon Rainbow Tank.
I consider it a fish tank with plants, not really a planted tank.
Thinking of going CO2 and going to next step, but my set up is really easy to care for now.

Bump: What a joy to look at every page in this thread. There are some awesome scapes on here! Look forward to seeing more

My 7.5 cube. Just did a rescape today, still not totally happy with it. I have a shortage of hard scape materials small enough for this tank. The NJF needs to grow in from behind the stone on the left. I might even replace it with something else, haven't decided. Those are a few of my corydorus pygmaeus in the front, there are 7 all together.

|Katey||My ten gallon, with celestial pearl danios, chili rasboras, rabbit snails, and shrimp! The seventyfive, with various angels, and tetras! Also some ruby tetras!|
