Fertilization I have not established any regiment yet, i like to experiment. So far I have be dosing Seachem iron, and some Flourish comprehensive.
Plants anything i can find, last count 26 species, but until i can correctly id them i will hold off on pretending that i know what all i have.
Inhabitants Siamese algae eaters, Garra species, Gold pristilla tetras, Kerri tetras, Neon tetras, Least killifish, Brigittae rasboras, Amano shrimp, Breeding zebra shrimp
Comments I have worked in the hobby for almost 9 years, and I have kept almost every kind of aquarium you can keep, but have mainly focused on reef tanks especially coral propagation. I have never really tried to keep a full blown planted tank, so it was time to try. So far I absolutely love it. Please understand that I am currently experimenting with as many species as possible to see what grows best in my care. All I have right now are bad cell phone pics, but i hope to fix that soon

WOW! looks very cool. You sound to be in a similar position as me. I have just moved from a reef tank also. This too is my first effort at a planted tank.
