A vibrant, enduring, algae-free tank starts with the right plant choice. Plants in 2Hr Tanks are chosen according to 5 key attributes: water parameters (hardness, pH etc.), lighting (primarily strength), nutrition (which includes CO2), space and upkeep- the skills / effort required for maintenance.
The technology behind 2Hr Tanks centres on (a) lighting, (b) water circulation (which is largely invisible but regulates air and nutrient distribution) and (c) nutrition, which includes the Capstone formula at the heart of APT fertilisers, as well as methods to optimise CO2.
While every tank is unique, all go through 3 distinct phases. The actions required at each stage are different, and collectively allow us to maintain tanks that can thrive and endure for years.
