Thanks! It's a 40 breeder and I wasn't originally injecting Co2 but just a few days ago I added an Ista 45g disposable Co2 kit. It only runs 1-2 bps. I'm pretty proud of this tank. I rearranged the plants 4 or 5 times before I came up with this layout. I think it's going to look even better soon when the S.repens on the left and right sides of the foreground fill in properly. I planted them about a week ago. The ones in the center have been there from the start around 3 or 4 months. You can tell that they are much more dense. I'll try to get a less blurry picture soon

So many truly inspiring tanks in this thread. I'm going to abandon my plans to make my 125 high tech!

This is my first tank. It is awesome to see it evolve over the few months I have had it. I love low tech and how low maintenance it is.

Check out my journal in the sig for all the details!
