    My Road to IAPLC 2017

    Took all Cyperus out. It did die slowly. No to very little growth. Probably not enough light because in the middle it did do best. So I'm looking for another plant in the back. Thinking about Eleocharis vivpara or Vallsneria nana. I'm scared the val will grow too fast and Eleocharis will look...

    182l Optiwhite tank "Sherpas way home"

    Absolutely beautiful! But so will be the new project I guess;)

    Critique my hardscape Fluval Studio 900

    With wood, I don't think less is more. More is better I think. 80% will not be visible once the plants grow in. So I'd definitely add a little more wood than you think is good. I liked the wider setup in the beginning and really like the curve in the wood that was in front in the first picture...

    Stainless steel

    Stainless steel is made to rust much slower compared to normal steel (it's in the name;)). Even filters are made from it (ADA) or filter in and outlets etc. It will rust eventually but unless you use salt water, this will be so extremely slow, it doesn't matter. And even if it did get rusty...

    You know this is a 1000L tank right? These Cyperus are 40cm high right now and barely make it over the wood. Wendtii would disappear behind the wood. But I do have balansae in between the Cyperus for a little aged look;)

    My Road to IAPLC 2017

    Changed the background plants. Trimming a bucket full of Pogostemon every week was no longer my thing. I was looking for a bright green plant but all of them seemed to grow quite fast. Till I stumbled upon Cyperus helferi, so I bought a few dozen of those to swap the Pogostemon out. Still a...

    My Road to IAPLC 2017

    Made a box last week which holds my Apex computer and all Powerplus and cables. I can open the front of the box and access everything if I need to. I installed a DJ switch so I don't need to pull cables out anymore and I bought a cheap 8 inch tables which I use to display my Apex measurements...

    The Pogostemon quadrifolius in the back is growing so fast that I want to replace it for something that grows slower. Any suggestions?

    Thanks! The moss is in almost perfect shape. The Congo tetras are taking bites now and the, but I just took most of it off. It took me 3 hours every few weeks to trim a bucket full off. Besides that I wanted to expose the wood a bit more.

    A long overdue update. At the closing date for the IAPLC I thought the tank didn't look mature enough. So I enterred the contest with an iwagumi 90P which looked fine at that moment. I did enter the Dutch NBAT contest with this tank. So I received multiple housevisits from judges to see how...

    Made an extreme HDR today, by making a picture during the day from the 'cabinet' and from the aquarium this night. A little photoshop (which I'm not good at) and this is the result: #iIlikeit

    My Road to IAPLC 2017

    Most fish are quite common. Otocinclus, Trigonostigma espei, Paracheirodon simulans, Nannostomus marginatus and the little less common Alestopetersius caudalis and Hisonotus leucofrenatus. Lots of shrimp, some Panaqolus to keep the wood clean and some other L-numbers because I love them (a group...
