Its No Takashi Amano But...

This is my 29 gallon. It has taken me 8 years to learn how to maintain a planted tank without being destroyed by algae. I have pressurized C02, and dose EI. A small Fluval 204, and a single 39 watt t5ho with home made reflector.

What's the bright green bush to the left of the sword? I just found a few springs growing in a bunch of Java Fern so I pulled it and planted it alone in my high tech tank to see what it does. It was in my low tech shrimp tank.

Great tank! I like how simple it appears at first glance, but as you look at it closer, you realize there's a lot going on there.

Lovely looking. Agreed, very clean.

Yet again proof that it doesn't take much to make a tank look sharp.

Clean tank = Healthy planted tank? Looks like that's the case once again.
