Planted 75 update ( picture heavy)

I have been asked a couple questions about my tank, I hope this will fill in the blants...Substrate, regular gravel mixed with API First Layer Pure Laterite, 1oz per gallon, Plant food, API Leaf Zone, half a doze every 2 weeks, an, half a plant tab on the heavy feeders once a month. I do have CO2, it's a Do It Yourself setup, one bottle every 2 weeks, an I have to admit,some times I don't even put it back on the tank for weeks..Lighting is heavy, 4 - 65 watt 6700k compact fluorescent bulbs, 12 - 14 hours a day, replace bulbs every 6 months. filtering is handled by 2 Magnum 350, NO charcoal, filter canisters have SEACHEM MATRIX in them. And filters are changed every 30 days, Matrix is rinsed an reused, have been useing the same Matrix for a long time (GREAT STUFF). Temp is between 78-83 degrees, PH hangs about 7.0, amonia 0.0, with a 35% water change every week. An I keep a diary, that goes back 3 years on this tank. I hope this helps, an will answer any more of your questions if I can..First pixs are from May 02 11, an the rest are from tonite.

We have some very talented aquascapers on this forum. And here's another. I like the substrate, that is very natural. Well done.

Byron.
