OK, it's so easy to trip over one's own shoelacese so let's see if we can clarify. I'm fundamentally disagreeing with this statement:

Sorry, but I disagree with this statement. EI is based fundamentally on the concept of nutrient deficiency avoidance by dosing to slight excess, which includes CO2. Inappropriate limiting CO2 is just...

OK, I'll buy that part, so fine, but a sponge filter will work just as well in it's own compartment in that size tank. I'm just having trouble conceiving of upkeep difficulty in a 1 gallon tank. I...

Hey Mothi,
Why complicate your life? On the one hand you are saying you want to keep things simple and then on the other hand you want to do all that construction for a 1 gallon...

FYI - Siesta is a myth. It does nothing to help plants and only helps the algae because they respond much faster to changes in the environment. You can lower the light intensity or the total duration...

Hi Aj,
Well, 2.2 wpg with CO2 injection doesn't reall qualify as strictly "low" tech (I guess it would depend on your ppm). You know, if I see a growth slow down my first reaction is to...

Aj,
All of the substrates you noted are fine to use, I don't think you can go wrong with any of them but the question is why bother adding more substrate to what's there already? You didn't...

Carolyn,
It's probably a good idea to get a good kH test kit so you can calculate the CO2 concentration (that's a parameter in the "must know" category). The dosing schedule you listed...

Hi imatrout,
I'd say definitely double or triple the NO3. I don't know how you are measuring K but 0 ppm is not good for the plants.

Assuming the wattage is comparable, you probably won't see much of a difference in long term plant growth with your import tubes versus your local tubes. The plants will adjust...

Yes, the relationship is expressed as follows;

CO2 (ppm) = 3.0 * KH * 10^(7.00 - pH)

A sample chart can be found in many places, here is one; http://aquaticconcepts.thekrib.com/
