ItsDubC Well done! Just goes to show that CO2 supplementation isn't a necessity in a planted tank. Just curious tho, you're no longer supplementing ferts but does that include root tabs as well?

chiefroastbeef Awesome growth! Do you have a photo of the tank trimmed?

I just bought some aromatica for my low tech tank, I am comforted in seeing that yours are doing okay! Thank you for the photos and sharing.

Marine Depot sells a comparable tank called the MrAqua 12g Long.

salmon very nice Heathbar!

amazing growth for no Co2/dosing.

HeathBar It's been a while since I posted updates. Here are some pictures of the tank now. These were taken just before a major trim.

I'm really happy with the way it turned out. The only regular maintenance I do on it is add water once a week and feed the fish every day. Once a month I remove any accumulated algae with my hands. Every 6 months the filters gets cleaned out.

No ferts, no CO2.
