Hehe. I actually referred Ccbeauch to start this thread from

These were the pictures from Cc's tank journal that made me do it. From November:
It's the general decline in plant health that concerned me more than the algae. It looks like Cc has used CO2/Excel at some time in the past, and at some point discontinued it; I'm not sure of the timing and perhaps that's the only thing responsible. But as I have no experience with dirted tanks, I wanted to make sure someone who knows their dirt can take a look, and uncover any other potential issues.
