Dennis, mine is a 20gallon tank powered by 2x36w PC. Loads of Rotala rotundifolia, Bacopa caroliniana, Limnophilla aromatica and some kind of crypts with no space left for planting except the small foreground for my cories to play and feed. Critter loading is on the moderate side for things. I have given up pretty much on testing due to crappy test kits and is following the recommendations given by Tom Barr (Estimative index method). For traces, I'm doing 5ml 3x per week...The N & P gets a dosage of 7ppm 3x per week and 1-1.5ppm 3x per week respectively. CO2 is kept on the higher side of things (usually above 25ppm and close to 35ppm). Growth is good and no algae issues at all. :lol:
