    Hi Art, Really enjoyed episode 55 and 56 with the focus on proper fertilizing. Have been keeping aquariums for almost 40 years now. Planted tanks have been my focus for the last 10 years. I feel like I have the lighting and CO2 down but fertilizing has always been my weak link. I am going to try a mineralized soil tank shortly. If you could get Sean Murphy from GWAPA on the pod cast that would be great. I am following his info from the Aaron Talbot APC post. This was back in 2004. I would be curious if either Sean or Aaron have anything new to add about their methods. Keep up the great work. Bob (ScapeFu Tribe member)
