Whoops. I'm sorry, but now I'm confused.

I spend a lot of time explaining at Swedish forums what I learn from this
list, over and over again without chopping the noobs heads off - alot
like spoon-feeding actually. The aquatic gardening hobby in Sweden
is in it's infancy, so a great deal of spoon feeding is necessary - and
it's worth it. I get new cool aquascape pictures from really young "noobs"
in my mailbox more and more often.

I thought a mailing list was about asking questions, but I guess my
question was a really noob-question or something.

I'm mostly into gardening/design and have a hard time with the chemistry -
especially when it comes to hardness/calcium/carbonates etc, and
now that my high-tech is running fairly smoothly I wanted to dive
into the low-tech-slow-growth tanks.

So a very specific answer means very much to me, as it's hard
puzzeling everything together.

Ok, I have the Kasselman-book but havn't got around buying
Dianas book yet. I've browsed it and it looked very academic
and complicated, but I guess I will need it from now on.
