Really, no co2? Cool and nice tank! Having said that your tank does not have co2 system, do your tank experiencing any algae problem?

Very nice. I like the way the soil is sloped instead of traditional flat substrate. Nice plants.

Had a bit of string algae initially, while growing the tank under brighter lights, now it seems to have stabilized and the tank remains quite clean, probably because of low bio-load. I dose NPK using KNO3, KH2PO4, and traces using CSM + B. Only dose during weekends though, about 3ppm N, 0.6ppm PO4, 3ppm K, and 0.05ppm Fe through CSM + B.
