Fluval Roma 125 - 4 month old scape fully grown in.

No use of Co2 injection & using the standard 10w led light that came with tank.

Decided to plant heavy and let the plants be the focus.

Pleasantly surprised with the quality of plant growth from this set up :)

Looks great! Think a lot of people would be happy if they got those results with co2 let alone without.

cheers

Thanks guys! @Conort2 @Nick72

Yeah it really surprised me how quickly it had filled in without the use of Co2. For example, it was my first time using dwarf hairgrass and I had read a lot about people struggling with it - but it had managed to carpet fairly quickly for a low tech set up 😊

Definitely the key it seems @Conort2.

It is isn’t completely perfect up close, some of the leaves are experiencing a bit of pale colour/die off, especially with the S Repens but it’s very little

On the whole it’s turned out much better than I had expected. The low light means limited nuisance algae which is the best part!
