It's not so difficult to manage this tank. The secret is to be patient and a good observer of your tank to understand what is happening inside. In my website I have a "diary" I wrote in italian language, and some technical and graphical data pages that may be useful.
pH 6.5-6.8. KH 2, GH 5, NO2 0, NO3 0, Fe 0, PO4 0
I putted pictures taken at different date to show how the tank is changed and how I changed it time by time.
