Oh No Truckasaurus is leaving!..........What has changed in 20 years? Plants are still plants, water is still water and fish are still fish.......If it worked 20 years ago why cant it work now?.........Evolution and progression isnt always cracked up to be what you think.....What are you gonna think when Diana Walstad and Tom Barr realize that maybe some of their new found knowledge is incorrect?........

They will look at the available and collected evidence, try these theories, and base their opinions on their findings.

They will base their opinions on their findings, they will then repeat the test for validity, and then publish their findings in a scientific journal.

When sufficient scientific evidence is their which backs up their theory, im willing to try it out to see if it works, and so far, all of tom barrs method have worked for me, and the other 3000 or so UKAPS members, so therefore, that would strongly suggest that it is fact. Within the next few years someone may come up with a new theory which would seem preposterous, then the process happens again.

The whole nitrates and phosphates causing algae thing; when someone suggested it couldn't possibly be correct, they were shot down for it, they tried it, published their findings, repeated it, then others tried it with positive results, then their theory was accepted, and it is accepted as being correct.

Old techniques? Hmmm. Interesting comment. If by "old", you mean tested by time and found to be successful when duplicated, then I agree with you. There are a lot of techniques being taught here by Byron that are easy to duplicate if you want a successful, low budget, planted aquarium.

Honestly, at this point I'm not sure how anyone reading these threads over the couple of weeks could not find Byron's information helpful and easy to apply.

At the end of the day, the colour of a tube makes no difference to your plants health, they're still going to grow healthily and can utilize available light, no matter what colour it is. I now take my post previously back, I miss interpreted Byron's post- not purposely.

I've had it with this forum, there is a load of {edited by Moderator- Pasfur} old techniques, methods etc, people aren't willing to move on, planted aquaria progresses at an alarming rate, and information from 20 years ago isn't doing anyone a favour. Even Diana walstad has admitted some of the information she has published is not incorrect, as has tom barr!

You can't educate pork as they say.
Actually,, Pigs are quite smart.Science has proven it.
