Started as a low tech plant but could not resist and it is now HIGH TECH or close to. Would change the title but don't know how.
Recently converted my malawi tank to a planted tank. For now I am aiming for a low tech tank (at least that's what I told my wife
). I have done some research up to this point and thought I'd get a journal going just to make sure my thinking is correct. Recommendations and guidance is always appreciated.
