Very nice! What plants and fauna do you have in there?

Holy crap. I almost don't believe you that it's low tech, unless it's been running a long time. Tank looks GREAT!

Thank you.
Tank has been running for a year and a half.
Slow grower's with exception of the star grass on back wall.
Trying to learn more about the plant's before giving the gas a try .
Followed Tom Barr's NON CO2 method with exception that I still perform water change of 50 % once a week, or every two week's.

Nice. I wouldn't mess with CO2 honestly. I mean it looks like you have low tech down and it's working great. If it ain't broken, why try to fix it.

Don't wish to be one trick pony, as Tom has said.:icon_wink

Still sorta scared of the gas and extra work trimming, pruning, but plan on giving it a go when finances allow.
