Well, my first tank with live plants in it was setup in November.
Nothing fancy; some hygro (regular and sunset), water sprite, and
ambulia. It's a 29g with two 24" F20T12 GE PL/AQ bulbs; DIY CO2, daily
1mL of Leaf Zone (iron and K), and 1.5mL Plant Gro. Everything seems
fine. Woke up one day to a foggy tank last week, changed 75% of the
water over the course of 24 hours and it went away.
