thank you very much. i took my time and worked on it alot. i knew little about planted tanks when i started. i always had fake plants until a few years ago. now i have learned two of the most important things: 1. the more living plant matter the better the tank functions. 2. i also discovered that i dont have to clean the sand and substrate but maybe every 5-6 months depending on the bioload and the amount of waste that is not being used by the plants. i dont use co2
and my aquarium is very low maintnance.
