Low light high tech?

the other day i was looking through the AGA aquascapeing contest entries and 1 in particular caught my eye as i was reading through the technical specifications:


all the other entries in the medium size category where high light hi tech tanks and yet here was this one, running with little over 1 WPG and yet it looked like all the others, albeit with an absence of low growing carpet plants and fast growing stem plants. looking further at the specs, i saw that it had pressurized CO2 injection and fertilization, not a common sight in low light tanks.

does anybody have any input on setting up a tank this way? what do you guys think about such a setup? what are some advantages as opposed to a high light high tech setup?

Nice tank. If the person can run pressurized Co2, low lighting and keep the algae down...all the power to him.

The only thing I dislike is the backhanded compliment by one of the judges. I've noticed this particular judge makes a lot of snide remarks...
