This is the first 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. These features are in response to interest from some of our customers and are generally intended for beginners.

The layout of the tank is shown as a frontal and top view diagram, with each plant group labelled.

Easy Life EasyCarbo is highly recommended in aquariums without pressurised CO2, for more details, visit the product page.

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.
