Every week change around 20-30% water, cleaning glass diffuser and front glass.
Trim some plants every week or two.
Every day some fertz.
I don't use any water tests in this time.

Did you paint the backgound black or just because the room is dark?

Stop dreaming. Read some info online, Buy Co2 some fertz good bit of lights and start trying.
For begining you dont need special substrates, external filters or opti white tank :)

amazing tank. it's really well balanced. is this what would be classed as a "dutch aquarium"?

any tips about your hemianthus callitrichoides? i'm thinking of using it to carpet a 60L shrimp tank. does it grow quickly? how would you recommend planting it? i'm planning on using Aquabasis and JBL Manado and fertilising it with ProFito and EasyCarbo

Easy carbo and profito will be not enough. You need to use NPK nitrogen phosphorus potassium.
Profito use like micro elements and easy carbo just to help your co2. Most important are lights and good circulation of co2.
All npk you can buy from easy life , ada ,aqua art or mixed dry salts.
Your substrate will be good. Just cut small pieces and put in to substrate every one inch.

thanks mate. I think I might be falling back to my "Plan B" of using Hydrocotyle tripartita. At least I know I can grow that without too much trouble :)
