Re: [APD] RE: High Tech Tank....8 Years Later!

We last set up our three tanks in May 1996 after we had to tear them down

to make way for some house remodeling. So they all have 7+ years on them.

We decided to tear down the 120g tank this summer to cut down on
maintenance a bit but it was still going strong - no visible algae, rapid
plant growth. We could see no difference in growth or stability compared
to the initial set up. We've never added anything to the substrate beyond
the initial 2 kg of laterite. It had a 250w Dupla heating cable. We
neither saw nor smelled any problems in the substrate when it was removed.

I'm the new owner of George and Karla's 120g tank. When I set it back up all I did was top the old gravel with some new gravel to keep the laterite dust to a minimum. The tank is still high tech minus heating cables and is growing anything I put in there like mad...
