    marimo, low tech indoor not easy to pearl.
    the o2 given out by plant faster then the water around them can absorb as you know...
    but low tech normally not high powered light which is the strong factor affecting this.

    anyway, i waiting for your post

    Adding some floating plants with roots hanging down will add to the natural look of your tank.

    Can consider Frogbits or water lettuce.

    Hardy and easy plants to grow

    @FC, is your tank still on the book shelf ? Far too flimsy to hold a fish tank...

    For low tech planted tank, is a hang on flter advisable in terms of surface agitation, driving off too much CO2 ?

    Re: Small Low Tech Tanks

    Fish-keeping is all about creating a balanced eco-system in the tank. In all aquariums, the aim is to achieve a nice balance in the system. Since every tank is different in terms of it's components, namely differing amounts of water, fish, plants and other living organisms, the amount of influence each factor contributes to balancing in one tank may not be the same in another.

    Whether too much C02 is 'driven off' by surface agitation or not will depend on the optimal C02 needs of the plants in the tank itself. If the amount of fish in the tank is such that the CO2 produced by the fish during the day and regular hours of darkness is sufficiently abundant, there should be no problem. But while plants need no surface agitation or aeration, fish and other organisms need them all the time for an abundant supply of oxygen. Balancing the competing needs of the two is a bit tricky.

    You can get the C328 auntie to order for you. Probably will arrive within the next day or two. She told me she didn't want to stock glosso because it dies easily (which I find funny because they regularly stock HC). PolyArt also carries glosso every now & then, but recently their remaining pots ain't very healthy.

One day I see nothing in one of them. The next day when I came home, I see 2 shoots about 10cm long.

    Quite an interesting plant to look at. Though at the end of the day, I supposed the shoot will grow out of the water surface and grow similar spiky leaves as a bunch like the one at the bottom. Cool plant.
    We know very little about what happens to Belugas in the wild, and its only through aquariums like this that we actually find out that information. Clint Wright
