I planned to plant in the first section of my sump (without derbrisable substrate, no soil,no sand, no extra CO2, No artificial fertilizer)

And here's the result!

1st I try with various types to see if any of them don't feel well (mostly pick the one with red tone, 'caus all the fish above is red. XD)

And they all seems to live well..

So I putted more ! (Dat my new tank checker Mr. Angel, he gets in every tank before everyone else )

And this is how it looks after a month

(I closed the light 2 days before shot the pics, so it could get more tones)

Very cool! I look forwards to your updates at the plants progress. I prefer a soil substrate or planting in pots with soil. It will be interesting to see how your plants progress without any fertilizers... I am sure the success will depend on the plants you are using!

How long could it be called "Success" ?

Around 2 months, They Already rooted the mat deep enough to stand 10kL/h.

And I'm afraid that I can't really say "None-Fertilizer", Koi Poop is one of the best.

My cat also likes to lay down by my tank. He's favorite spot is in front of the tank. This probably is a new development in the last few months as I didn't notice him there as frequently in the previous 15 years I've had him.

Just snapped this now:MVIMG_20190526_211708.jpg
