Smile Jungle Fever!!

Here's a couple of pics of both my 20G and 50G in jungle mode.
Some of the extra plants ( Amazon swords, dwarf sags,crypt balansea, java fern & windelov),will moved to the 30 once it's set up.
Stats: No ferts other than provided by fauna and food and K2SO4 with water changes, no CO2, ( both bottles ran out about 3 weeks ago) 65W 12-14 hrs on the tenty, 65w for 2 hrs in the am, 130W 8 hrs and 65w for 3-4 hrs evening on the 50. UV 24/7 in both tanks. Minimal algae in the 20, no algae in the 50.
PH 6.8-7, NO3 5-10ppm, PO4 .5-1ppm, never measured GH/KH as I'm using straight RO. ( Tap water too high in iron and minerals ) 50 to 75% water changes every 3 weeks.

Great tanks, the swords and ferns in the 20g really need to be moved. I can't believe how good your tanks look w/ no CO2!

Thanks Jdinh. Already moved one sword and some Java to the 30, with more to go. I'm also surprised with the amount of growth without the CO2. The only major change that I've noticed is the Ludwigia and Moneywort will now need trimming every 3-4 weeks rather than twice a week. The Dwarf Sags have gone nuts in the 50 with no signs of slowing down. Time to tin them out.

Very nice, especially considering the low-tech approach. Well done!
