    Hello everyone, I have a new low tech aquarium (Fluval Edge 12g), only three weeks old. I go with low light (8h/day) and without CO2.

  9. Low Tech Forum
    Hi all, we set up a very low tech dirt planted tank two days ago. I originally wanted to set it up using mineralized to soil substrate, but with the snow storms, I just soaked the top soil outside (without the wet and dry cycles) and decided to switch to the Walstad "El Natural" method.
