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.
