Default first time with ferts n co2

hi all this is my 40 gal

im trying to get a recent pic but its so dang hard

i even added micros to my low lighted tank once a week
and my anubias is shooting 4-5 new leaves at a time
i highly reccomend micros to anyone with a lowlighted planted tank
as long as algea doesn't start to bloom
keep in mind i have 1.5 wp over my low lighted tank with plenty of plants to suck up nutrients
plus some hormwort that im removeing bi-weekly cause is multiplys
faster than you can say salsa verde

Nice looking plants. What are micros? Why aren't you loading your pictures using the "attach files" option located at the bottom of the reply window?

Very nice tank and plants! You have a nack apparently for growing live plants in an aquarium. I really like the different colored substrate.

I've never heard of micros. Like Dano asked, what is it?
