Absolutely gorgeous - I love them! How long have these been up and running - and who lives there? Great work!

Nope,no CO2 but quite a few fish, which produce some CO2 as by- product of respiration.
Also use soil,unscented cat litter, capped with black diamond blasting media.
Tank's receive dry fertz once a week or two,trace mineral's once a week or twice a week.

Looking good. It's typically very difficult to get such a lush tank without CO2 so congrats on that.

1077 how do your Corys do on the Black diamond?
I had this in my tanks not to long ago and found it kinda rough. I have heard it was fine for them but was kind of hesitant to put them in a tank with it after feeling it.
