maybe its me and my crappy city water but i think planted tanks either fail or flourish. if you want to go low tech the skill required to balance everything takes time to learn, which is usually picked up on through fighting algae, trimming plants, etc. and again, this is probably me being wishful, but i'm hoping the high tech quality looking tank is actually easier to achieve once all the pricey equipment has been brought in. i'd like to hear others opinion on that.
