Not my best photo but it's good enough for now This is one of my two low tech tanks, it basically started as a grow out tank for plants and grew into my first really successful planted tank. It's no pro scape, but to me it looks natural and simplistic. Only additive I use is SCAPE liquid carbon. I use inert substrate and natural waste produced by fish\shrimp and snails along with a T5 2x39watt unit, also running a Dophin C-1600 canister filter with bio balls for bio filter. There's a sponge wall by the filter intake which acts as the mechanical filter and feeding wall for shrimps... Just goes to show you don't need all the fancy gadgets for a nice planted tank.
