I don't do anything to it besides add leaf zone i believe it what its called so the plants don't turn yellow.. sometimes once a week or 2 ill add the flourish excel organic carbon.. i find the more I leave it alone the better the tank does.. so I try not to mess with it and let it do its own thing.. I did back down the light on it some.. was doing about 12 hours.. only do about 8 now..

attached is what it looked like when i got the new swords a few weeks ago..

Haha I think everyone does. I saw a massive version if it at my lfs but they wanted 90 bucks for it. And if I'm reshaping this winter I plan on going more natural. I get to rescape if I'm a good boy so says the wife who just got a new laptop. She thinks shes so smart lol too bad for her I just got a new credit card to play with and what momma don't know can't hurt her.

The big castle is sweet but I wasn't going to spend $90 on it either! Lol! Be careful with the credit card! She may figure it out with all the holes burned through your pockets! Lol!
