This is the second in our new feature series ‘Planting on a Budget’, which each month will detail a different aquascape designed for ease of setup and maintenance and without the need for pressurised CO2.
The layout of the tank is shown as a frontal and top view diagram, with each plant group labelled.
Tropica Plant Nutrition and Plant Nutrition+ liquid fertilisers are recommended for use in this aquarium. For this tank 10ml per day is probably a good starting point, but you should refer to our Tips and Tricks section for further details on dosing with TPN.
