Beautiful!! Does this tank more or less look after itself or is there a lot of maintenance going on?

Amber, When I had this set up, I pretty much just left it be, however when I had to move the tank home for the summer (I'm in college) I regretted not doing more maintenance. The heteranthera was far to tangled to do anything with, I tried to keep some of it, and it did recover some, but then I had a pond snail population explosion which I spent many months attempting to erradicate. Being my first attempt at a planted tank, this tank has been a learning experience and I am working on a new aquascape with more plant species and a different layout. I hope to post a pic of it soon, once everything has grown in a matured nicely.
