Comments For the first 6 months I was only running the original lighting from the tank: 2x 20" or so 18w T8 lights and did not feed any ferts. The plants grew slowly and survived... Sins a week I am running 1 T5 bulb and my plants are pearling. I also dose 3-4 times a week Flourish. I never had algae. Starting over in Juli, using MTS, High light, Paintball CO2 and Ferts to create my dream aquascape.

dude.... that tank is the beast!!! i love the way you separated it into sections for the plants that like gravel and the plants that like sand. nice idea with the rock separator. i love the plant in the sand, it looks definitely like the center-piece. i think i might do that, make a barrier and split. thanks, this one gets 5 stars!!!
