Default My 55 No tech.....

I have been using the kiss method...."Keep It Simple Stupid" I have no co2, about 80 wts on a 55, I use Flourish Excel, jungle root tabs. Nothing fancy, but here is my planted 55 discus tank.....

Lots of different Crypts,
Jungle Vals
Indica Magenta
Amazon Swords
Melon Swords
Anarchris
Java Moss
Java Fern (Lace)
Java fern (needle)

I am forgetting the rest, but you get the idea...

















My camera SUCKS! SO the cave is too hard to see, and yeah, but I will get better pics soon...

Hi I-Ruehl,

It is pretty obvious that "simple" is working well for you! Nice variety of textures too.

I really like your tank. It looks very natural. I like your rock placement. I don't think the DW is doing much for you. I think you either should add more or remove you one piece.

Hi I-Ruehl,

I like the changes that you made, the aquarium looks much more open and spacious. I think that you did a good job with the rock hardscape.
