Re: Low tech/high tech
I would argue that there are *three* axes to any aquarium: Tech-ness,
Effort, and Cost. Any aquarium "recipe" will exhibit variations
on these three axes:
Cost Effort Tech
soil/sun/no CO2/no filter: Low Low Low
full DIY setup with CO2/PMDD: Low High High
mixed soil/store lights: High High Low
full Dupla setup: High Low High
You could argue what's low and high in each category, but I'm sure you get
my point. I think everyone feels that "high-tech" means lots of gadgets.
What we're having a problem with is trying to fold into that definition
cost and effort...consider those separately.
