Low Tech Plants

My low tech tanks are starting to fill in and I thought I'd post a couple of pics.

My 29 Gal.

Your tanks are very nice.

I also have a 29 gallon low tech that I am working on. Please tell me a little about your setups.

Tank setup

Hi Littlecich, thanks for the reply. It's really very basic. I have a canister filter on each along with a sponge pre-filter, of course a heater on each and regular florescent lighting. I stay with the low tech plants, (and even a few bulbs that I bought from Wally World) and they seem to be doing well. I use florite substrate mixed with regular aquariam gravel and have added Malaysian Trumpet Snails because they tend to burrow and keep the substrate loosened up. I do about a 50% water change weekly.

Temps - 76-78
PH 7.8
KH 4

Ocassionly, I will add a PMD mix of pherts.

I really like your 29 gallon. What is in the left front? I can't tell if it is a rock or a special piece of drift wood.
