    Best substrate for Dutch tank

    yep. My good old friend Willem is indeed using only river sand. Crypto's and echinodorus are getting extra iron and fertilizer in capsule/ tablet form cose to the roots.

    600 litre planted discus tank ( Journal)

    Getting more and more happy with this tank, plants are growing but slow exactly as I wanted as I don't want to trim every week. I have got my so beloved discus and also some lovely checkerboard ciclids. More than enough fish now
