Not much to it...just small water changes.  No more than 25%.  Frankly,
those tanks are the least planted of all of ours... just sand and shells.  
The water's so hard I can't even put salvinia in.  We end up relying on 
algaes for nutrient control.  And BGA can be a problem in these tanks.

Unfortunately, not much to say about DOC or other TLAs -- we don't really 
measure anything these days.
