    Need lots of light, n.p.k, trace nutrients and c02 to grow ground cover like this in 2ft deep water. If the tank was 1ft deep it would need far less light and nutrients but still benefit with c02 injection. Tanks like this are running in overdrive and are not easy to keep. one miss hap and you have a mess.

    I dont run it like this now days. Not a low maintenance tank and these days power is expensive. Easy to run 100$ plus power bills for aquariums alone. Lower light and slow growing plants are better for my two old fish. They dont like me cleaning their house very often and when I do they stress and bounce around aquarium sometimes and even splash me in the face. I like to keep them happy because are over 20 years old.

    Macronutrient fertilizers are generally labeled with an NPK analysis, based on the relative content of the chemical elements nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K) that are commonly used in fertilizers.
