Sorry chaps, the Bucket is no more. Had a protracted house move earlier this year and gave everything away.
This was it on it's last morning -
And a few hours later -
I have a new tank up and running now in the new place (4x1x4'), kindly donated by a friend on the UKAPS forum.

|billbug68||Completely understandable after several years. I get sick of my tanks after 6 months...|

|BigTom||Haha thanks again. The ferns were 90% java fern 'trident'. There's still some around the sides and back. It's a great plant, probably my favourite but it's been the dominant plant in the tank for several years so I fancied a change.|

Tom's Bucket O' Mud (semi self-sustaining aquarium)
Absolutely stunning, man. I was gonna say, everything shows such great color, no obvious deficiencies, no crazy algae... Again, great work.
One more question... The ferns you just removed, was all of that just narrow leaf java fern? I thought it had a great effect against the few crypts you already had in the tank. And the microsword mixed with the hairgrass! Gah, so good! I can't get over it! Haha

Just read through this entire thread and your results are stunning. Inspiring me to experiment with something new and head in a different direction.
So let me get this right... You don't dose any fertilizers... At all?

Well after a month of melting hard, the crypts seem to be getting the hang of it
Still a bit patchy in places but lots of new growth coming through.

Never kept a planted tank before, but I have read with soil based substrates that the nutrients run out after a while, so do you guys just replace all of the substrate after a certain amount of time?
