    My high tech was a wonderful experience.
    Ran 4x 39w sylvinia tubes
    Co2 pressurized, inline atomizer at 3bpm.
    ADA substrate, and the best ferts to use DSD.
    Only running a fw 1500l pond with huge fantails, bathtub pond with endler guppies, shrimps and my 5 year old strain im mixibg with the blue japan x endlers

    Kind regards Marius

    Was looking at fish the other day and i swear the fish we see now were never on any list when I did tropical fish. In my days the best we had was gouramis and guppies. And loads and loads of tetras. All shapes and colors.

    yeah I remember buying shrimps or crayfish and they were blacklisted. But I just had to have them. And even back then they were very expensive. The place I bought them from caught them from a hidden tank in the shop:lol: Good old days.

    Planted tanks are stunning, but far too much hard work for my liking, lol.

    Viper that true, if your going planted. Then 50% wc werkly, dosing ferts, triming. Cleaning glass. marine is so far easier and less troubly, just more expensive
