    I'm getting my tank back up and running with my kids after an extended break.

    Any plants would be appreciated but foreground carpeting plants would be preferred.

    Fertiliser
    Presurised CO2 - Chinese Plus regulator with solinoid
    Estimative index fertilising

    Substrate
    Pool sand substrate - with old laterite from 3 previous incarnations

    Lighting
    2 x 54watt T5 Flirecent tubes -on in two session each day 06:00-11:00 and again 16:00 - 21:00
    1 x 10 wat LED spot light - not for the plants but it creates shaddows and ripples when there is movement on the water on from 21:00 untill I go to bed

    Plants

    Hi Phillip

    I don't have much to add, but I just wanted to say hi and that it was good to see you have your tank running again. I have also been out of it for a while. I still remember seeing one of your previous tanks (back in 2005 or so) and being really impressed that you actually had Riccia and pressurised CO[sub]2[/sub]! I hope you can track down some foreground plants. I'm sure some of the members will have some spare.

    Kind regards,
    Ryan
