    you're correct about the nitrates building up. the tank you are referring only stayed up for 6 months. it was torn down once when i moved back home.

    Denitriciation and plant uptake. Not always viable options for every tank.

    That being said there is more to water chemistry than nitrogen.

    Here are a couple photos of my planted 125 gallon (about 473 liters) aquarium.





    Hope you like it! (none of the plants are carnivorous plant though)

    Mine looks like nothing compared to your guy's aquariums, but here it goes[IMG][/IMG]
    Just a simple set up...
    [IMG][/IMG]

    I like waterlilies(nymphaea sp.) the most,they usually have a red-pink color depending on species...

    Mature Bananna lilies lose their bananna shaped roots when mature, it grew three lily pads but the current was to strong, causing them to melt

    Top of the aquarium(the lily pad)

    A bunch of other common plants

    29 gallon tank with a yellow form of Aphyosemion gardneri. Small airstone, no filter. Regular tank lid with one fluorescent bulb. Plants put in clay pots filled with soil from the backyard garden topped with a thin layer of gravel. All plants growing like crazy (Echinordorus, cryptocoryne, Anubias). Salvinia on top needs to be thinned very regularly. Some driftwood and java moss on the bottom. Fish are breeding and a few youngsters surviving in there.
