Comments I've had my tank setup for 8-10 years now. Just had fish & a fake large Driftwood. Tried growing plants years ago, but ddnt had any luck w/ it. Finally got in the hobby, and started to plant in October 09. They're growing well for a non-CO2 tank, but I'm sure they'll thrive once I setup my CO2 soon.... Any advice is always welcome. Thnx.
