I've had the ASII in the tanks for about two years now. No, I don't dose any ferts because it make the algae really come out in full force. I have semi-hard water at about 7.2 but it would be a little harder without the C02. The crew I have of otos, nerites and Amano's help keep everything at a steady pace. I suppose I have been pretty lucky at finding that happy medium. Really, I try not to disturb the substrate much as it causes a lot of "pollution" in the water for a few minutes. The soil seems to be very rich in nutrients. My avatar is a flower from the tiger lotus that seems to love the ASII as well.
