Re: [APD] Low-medium-high tech

Uh, well, some "yes" answers and some "no"s. I was avoiding
the "tech" nomenclature in favor of a few specifics.
Personally, I can't think of anything used on an aquarium
that I'd call high tech. But there is a distinction to
which hobbyists hold fast that has to do with relatively
large amounts of light and adding CO2, perhaps with a high
tech gadget link a compressed gas tank, and perhaps dosing
ferts in whatever form.  ;-)

While I have fallen back to distinguishing between faster
and slower growth set-ups, I realize that the distinction
has limited utility without the specifics. And if one has
the specifics, the general nomemclature can become rather
superfluous. I don't mind the general terms so long as I
know what someone means by them. And the general terms can
be useful as a shorthand method of reference, provided the
specifics are understood.
