klibs That tank is GREEN! Plants look very healthy! I also dig the angels - want to try to grow out some larger angels in my tank eventually...
Also i love the lotus, they add a great contrast.

I donít test for nutrient parameters. I use PPS PRO dosing, total root tabs from aquariumplants.com. The tank has been setup since the summer of 2011. Next step will be to redo the substrate with all ADA amazonia, and a switch to LEDs at some point.
OK thank you. Your dKH is lower than what I aim for but its obviously working well. I will also try the switch to T5HO and hope for better results.

jmf3460 THANK YOU! Thank you for posting a scape that isn't fake and unrealistic looking. I am soo sick of seeing the scapes with a few stem plants, a carpeting of baby tears and some over-strategically placed rocks. Your scape looks realistic, healthy and not forced, like you just let nature run its course. Lovely!
