except, no co2, no pearling...  Guess it's a personal preference.  After
seeing amano's books, and my own tanks when fully pearling I'm not fully
happy with just healthy, pretty plants.  I want those little bubbles that
are so beautiful all over my camboda, rotala, etc...
I'm not knocking the natural method - my girlfriends piranha tank sits by an
east-facing window with full sun untill ~11:00a, sand from the local river,
no co2, no fertilization (aside from three small red-bellies ;) ) under 2w/g
flourescent, etc...  It's just simple plants - wisteria, apon, water sprite
in there, but they're very happy.
I just want the leeetle bubbles...
