all of the tanks in the pictures were grown using my ferts, except the first one of the 75 gallon when it was still DIY CO2, and the 29 gallon, they were both grown using seachem, however I was dosing at higher than recommended levels than on the bottle

I am working on a non carbon form of my Micro and Macro that is being used on the 20L, it will be ment for people who prefer heavier dosing or just do not use carbon suppliments

i would definitely be interested in a fert without carbon since i am blasting so much co2 into my tank with a power head to chop it up. and quite frankly, i'm tired of buying comprehensive and all the micros separate. i like the idea of 2 bottles. especially since i'm sure seachem will come up with another product we absolutely need soon anyway. yes, less is certainly more there.

and did i happen to mention, i prefer buying local, i think it is better to be able to have an actual interaction from time to time than just emails

you can have the piece that runs across the middle of the tank. i took it out when i rescaped this tank and i won't be using it anymore. that is in a 20L (30") so you can tell the scale.

this is gonna sound goofy, but what i did to help me remember names, was i wrote the names of the plants right on the glass with black marker, so that way, when i looked at the plant, i was also kind of looking at it's name. you can scrape the marker off or use a rag with cleaner on it to remove it.
