    10g July 31-11.JPG10g Jan 4-12.jpgYou can use drops, but I've never bothered. In my 10g I add just under 1/2 teaspoon once a week. A quarter teaspoon would be close. For a time I did this twice weekly. The tank was very heavily planted then (see photos attached, first is July 2011, second January 2012).

    Wow that looks awesome.. They're so vibrant. My tank doesn't have that many plants at the moment, so half a teaspoon weekly will suffice?

    Yes. With the right plants, like the pygmy chain swords in there, and Java Moss on wood, once established they will rapidly spread. When those photos were taken, I had not done any pruning at all, but just let the plants do what they wanted. Eventually you do have to thin them to keep some open space and the plants are best when not crowded. But that tank has always been just a grow-out for plants, fry or a temporary home for something. Anyway, the point of the photos is to illustrate what can be achieved with the most simple approach: plain sand, moderate light, once a week liquid Flourish Comprehensive. That's it.
