I have been experimenting with a new approach to planted tank management over the last couple of years and I would like to share it here. This will take the form of a journal in the usual sense, but it describes methods and novel protocols that, while not unheard of, do not seem to be widely practiced. While I unabashedly claim unqualified success, I will refrain from advocacy entirely, as my approach would certainly be, admittedly, not to everyone's liking. It involves automation technology, multi-parameter data-logging, and frequent testing. Much of the operational philosophy concerns coordinated fertilization and water-change strategies. I offer below, without discussion, a few graphics as a foretaste of what will be presented. If there isn't much interest, I will not continue, but I very much hope to stimulate some dialogue.
