Though Travis's photos look great...they actually don't quite do proper justice. I've seen this tank in person...and yes, its just amazing. You can't find a single plant/stem in the entire tank that looks bad. no stripped bottom leaves or rotting stems, or distorted growth.

Just amazing, perfect looking plants.

Former advisor and planted tank geek...life's moved on though.

Thanks guys

I probably spend 15-30 minutes a day in maintenance, feeding, fertilization, etc. Plus about 2 hours every weekend doing water changes, cleaning, and pruning. It's a labor of love though and I can't say that it ever feels like work

Here's a link to a thread where I describe the physical setup in detail.
