Fertilization: 150 ml Tropica MasterGrow per week - dosed 3 times. 2 teaspoon K2SO4 per week. Half teaspoon KNO3 per week. 1/8 teaspoon K2HPO4 once or twice a week dosed on days when traces are not dosed. 60% water changes weekly. CO2 (at 25-30 mg/liter) injected with pH controller and diffused through Eheim filter.
Maintenance: The plants cease to pearl without weekly water changes or phosphate additions. Interestingly, spot algae on front pane is actually reduced when phosphate dosing is doubled. The tank is 8 months old and requires at least 2 hours of weekly pruning. Due to the high growth rates of the plants, the fertilization regime took more than 6 months to pin down - there was always some limiting nutrient that had to be chased down.
The tank was inspired by Arend van den Nieuwenhuizen's "Das Wunder im Wohnzimmer", a book about Dutch style tanks in the 1960s and 70s. However, I prefer a looser, less rigid interpretation of the Leiden style. Given the amount of nutrients fed into the tank, retaining any sense of style or look is impossible for more than a couple of days.
Substrate: 1 inch mix of Fluorite, laterite and AZOO Time Release fertilizer on the bottom with 3 inches of clean gravel above.
Driftwood: large piece covered with Microsorum pteropus "Windelov" and Java moss used to create a "street".
