This is my very low tech almost zero maintenance set up.
260 litres
No water changes just top ups every other day
Fluval 306 on half flow
Occasional bit of ferts if ever see deficiencies in the rip plants.
Dirt substrate with some Ada Amazonia and columbo florabase as a cap

I was told that there are very few "red" low tech plants...umm, it looks like there are lots. what are the red ones? in particular the ones on the far right and far left?

Also what is growing on the white rock on the bottom?

Thanks in advance

Some really cool tanks (hey Alastair & Tom), these are FTS of mine; no ferts no nothing except a healthy portion of neglect...
