    I took a snap of my main tank today. The camera is on my mobile phone, so dont be expecting a David Bailey shot!!!

    Its a RIO 180 litre, DIY CO2, 2 X 38W T5 arcadia plant pro, inert substrate with JBL balls.

    Fert, normal dosing is Pot sulph and trace twice a week.

    I get my nitrate from my fish, and my phos from the tap water.

    I have recently put API phoszorb and purigen into my filter and I am very happy with the results. I am resting the plants atm and will resume fert dosing soon.

    I also experimented with the new gallery feature... lets see if I got it right?!?!?

    to give you a little taster ....
    the full size pic is on UKAPS gallery :)

    Nice looking tank!

    Do you find you need the JBL balls, or are they just added as a luxury item for your heavy rootfeeders?

    Secondly, I like the Echinodorus tenellus foreground. i used to have one but i found it very high maintenance in a high tech tank.

    Have you got a post prune picture?

    thanks Dave,

    The JBL root balls are there for 2 reasons

    1) my substrate is inert, and they provide extra nutrients.

    2) As you guessed they are under the heavy root feeders.

    I'm doing a prune tomorrow (if I have time before I go on holidays!!) I'll try and get a picture up when I return. Maybe on something a little better than my mobile. I'll have to wait and see.
