Diff people have diff definitions.

To me, Low Tech means low light and CO2 isn't necessary, though a person may add DIY CO2 if they want.

High Tech means pressurized CO2 is on the tank and is usually higher light.

how do you tell if your tank is "high" tach or "low" tech??
Its like lauraleellbp said every has there own definition of high and low tech
high tech to me would be very expensive high end equipment fish tank monitoring system, rimless tank $300+ lighting, auto dosing so on and so on. Low tech is what almost every has I would think your basics co2 can filter $200 lighting and so on.

I actually think of three levels:

Low - Std lighting, no or DYI Co2.
Medium - CFL Lighting, pressurized C02 (w/wo monitoring), manual dosing.
High - Halide lighting, rimless, fully monitored with auto dosing.

That's pretty much how I think of it too, very basic guidelines.

Or even more generally, don't post about your tank in the low tech forum if you have pressurized CO2 ;)

High Tech: Robot fish, controlled by a PC, with real growing, blooming silk plants, using crystal clear mineral oil in the tank - rimless, of course.
ROFL:)

Low Tech: A screensaver (on a CRT)
