MattFounder and Easy Aquascaper
up my first tropical aquarium, it didn't take long before
I tried live plants. Unfortunately, all but one died...
I soon learn about fertilisation and CO2.
I was scared off CO2 by the complexity and expense,
and tried but failed to understand the 'Estimative Index'.
I settled on a micronutrient mix, which meant some plants
started to last longer before withering... I wasn't having
much luck...I then stumbled across aquascaping. I found
it awe-inspiring. I went off to buy wood and rocks to start
experimenting, these at least I couldn't kill! I tried to
follow the 'rule of thirds' but couldn't make anything look
right... I decided to try a simpler approach and finally
I had something I could be proud of - the scape at the top
of this page. However, getting to this point had taken years,
and even then my plants were far from thriving.In the
years that followed, I tried liquid CO2, but
just ended up with unhappy fish... I tried root tabs, they
were OK... I upgraded my lights... that made a difference...
I eventually formulated the
which I still use today, and are designed to give maximum
results with minimum effort.
