Quote: if it aint broke dont fix it!
About Yourself: i'm a 25 year old headhunter. got into the hobby by looging onto fishforums when i had a problem with my basic fish tank and never looked back. i dont own any fish/plant related books and have learnt everything from members of that planted tank forum. i actually have 3 planted tanks the 180, a juwel rekord 60 with a sandy layout and a 50G cube.
Fish Kept: 28 cardinal tetras 2 sailfin gibbiceps (10cm and 6cm) 1 adult angel 1 platy (rehomed for a friend) 1 flying fox 3 sterbai corys 5/6 amano shrimp (not that i ever see them)
Corals/Plants: Amazon swords (bhleri), java fern, tiger lotus lillys, echinodorus "red flame", glosso, Echinodorus "rubin" var "Narrow", java moss, anubias nana and anubias nana petite.
Tank Size: 40 gallons
Advice: for a planted tank setup i cant emphasise enough the use of laterite and CO2. one of the main reasons for failing with swords etc (heavy root feeders)is a lack of nutrients at the roots. laterite is reasonably affordable and will last years. on the co2 front, adding a basic yeast type co2 kit will improve any planted tank in one simple step. i will always use some kind of co2 in any planted tank regardless of lighting levels. and more importantly than anything weekly ewater changes (if adding dry ferts 50% to dilute the last weeks fertaliser leftovers)
