I saw pictures of Chihiros RGB and the red colors are verybright and vivid. I like most RGB solutions.
Aqualighter 1 is just ordinary white leds....
Good point! I think that indirectly explains why lower KH helps: afaik lower kh allows better co2 injection and more of co2 is available to...
What did you use for wall base?
Great idea to make it with red plants, really like it.
Never tried tissue culture of pinatifida, but I guess you can put half of the pot to substrate and other half to wood, closer to light and ensure...
I can only grow it succesfully in soft water, about KH 3-4, it's almost impossible to get success with my tap water with KH about 8-10. Of course,...
Don't know why but that reminds me some black water biotope. Just add some leaves, a bit of plants to background and voila.
Pinatifida could grow quite big and will overgrow youe tank easily. Imo, valisneria nana could be better choice as background plant.
It looks already very full and ready for iaplc shot :-)
Hey, welcome. Very nice hardscape, but it looks like good match for cube aquarium. What are dimensions of your hardscale atm?
I guess you have aponogeton. Have no idea which species though.
Very nice picture, it's matured nicely.very pleasing to see.
But a little bit overgrown though.
Looks great, what is new light unit?
And I can't find betta on photo?
Nice fish, great photos!
My kind of tank, like a salad
I love colors on 50 mm photo! Any idea why colors changed from photo to photo?
Honestly, I always think it's easy plant (but it needs CO2 anyway).
Just coincidence IMO. Anyway, good luck in new area!
Sometimes it's hard to get good photo for contest, for different reasons. I don't satisfied with photo quality, and the work itself was not really...
I like your work, I think it's really good result.
If this is 60p I suppose you lowered the water level for photo? Very good work, very cool photo.
You might try to put Betta sorority with several colorful females.
Side view of the tank - is really nice. I haven't realized it so narrow. Good job!
very nice indeed.
Absolutely amazing green corner!
Awesome scape, fantastic amount of Monte Carlo.
Nice. It was fast.
Great work mate. Good luck with contests.
Stitching radio has dedicated app. I'm using it to listen for this podcast.
Great video and explanations! Thank you very much.
Thank you for video, really great tank!
Haha, nice try, but I guess it should be available at stores closer to you than where I am.
Update: our office was moved (finally) 3 months ago,...
Would be nice to see a video of your tank ;-)
Fantastic cliff. Like how riccardia added some interesting accent and mood.
Some note about shrimps, e.g. cherry shrimps. They seem to slightly prefer moderate hard water, then soft. If you say your water is very soft, I...
What a cool puddle pond you build! Very cool that your walls are wooden, great match to live corner or green and brown.
Loving that anubias.
I think you've nailed it now. Good job.
Big tank is big tank. I like everything about big tanks, and what you do in them.
Do you have a shower with elastic tube? Maybe you can screw the unit on the elastic end?
IIUC you have fluval 50ft system?
Wow! The red is ruby.
It looks like you drain it completely and turned into dry paludarium.
Love your bar (bear). Can't say it really kleiner though. It does not look like small I mean. ))
Photo without heater is much better.
Yeah, 60x45x45 iiuc, looks great from the side.
Woah, I was wondering about tank size as well, it is definitely not the standard 60P due to form factor, but I failed to think it could be 60H....
I don't think it would be a good idea to remove CO2 injection, because the light is quite strong and without CO2 I'd expect to get a lot of...
@Costa only tetras were there. No rainbows. Flame tetra couple months ago were replaced by diamond neon tetra.
Looks great! Are those angels "dantum albino"? They look like ghosts. Impressive.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year:

This tank has been running on the same sand substrate for all...
Swords are too big indeed. You may check plants with narrow leaves, e.g. valisneria Nana, echinodorus angustifolius, or maybe eleocharis sp....
Very nice setup! Keep us updated
You can search for videos of ADG aquarium design groups from Texas. Brothers Senske are good in creating hardscape only tanks.
Nice video Martin! I Like it [emoji4]
Do you plan to add any plants at the background? The back looks a little bit bare for me.
Chris, in last months I've turned one of my tanks (pet shop one) to mainly crypts tank, inspired by your lazy jungle. What a breeze is a tank...
Pink tinsel is a part of new year and Christmas preparations.
Fish are ready for final shot, right from the beginning! Good luck!
Jaw dropping. Fantastic job, I wish you to be satisfied with your work in the first place.
Can you tell us: is this light dimmable?
6 weeks with new light. After I've dimmed the light to match CO2 and ferts, everything grows very good and very fast, and almost no algae on...
I think next year it will be interesting to try rgb lights, e.g. twinstar. Also chihiros announced their own rgb model.
Very interesting colors in your last tank. What kind of light unit you're using?
Are nympheas temporary there?
Great! How hard is maintenance for you? The tank looks pretty easy, maybe moderate. No really demanding plants, and not many stems to trim every...
Brown algae on orange rocks? That's master of hide and seek, I'd say :-)
Looks really great, envy to your clean stones.
How do you make such interesting blue light effect on the bottom of the tank? Sorry if you've already answered this before. Just noticed it.
Great pictures, but I'm worried about your puffer. It looks hungry.
Epic picture, it's matured nicely.
I wondered about their color too, quite unusual.
Hey guys, from Portugal and not only. Do you have any info whether this exposition will be working some more time? I'd like to visit Lisboa and...
White bg, please!
4 weeks with new LED light unit. Manufacturer gives such parameters on unit: 3400 lm light intensity, power unit is 12V and 36W. I must to say the...
Yeah, I've managed to remove it with sand flattener, using narrow spathe.
I see anubias coeffefolia on the rocks, right? Not in the plants list though.
Light units: on 5l pico light - it's just enough to grow undemanding plants. You can check my Cherry mix journal - I had this tank set at my work...

It seems you trim it every 10 days, but then I checked your journal, and it seems last major trimming was at November 1st. Is it correct?
@rebel yes, this is flamingo in the bigger tank. I know it's too big, but I simply love this picky plant.
Just watched your video about Estuary scape. What a great scape and very high ranking, congratulations!
I can imagine why it was difficult to...
@CooKieS thanks, there are about ten nannostomus marginatus which are dither fish. Although embers still look a bit shy, but there is no really...
Love this view
[ATTACH]OLI_9999 by Alexander, on Flickr
Oh, so great tank, pleasing to eyes. I've been watching it on flickr for some months now.
Interesting about "Myriophyllum tuberculatum" you...
It's happened again ;)
I've been asked about setting up 2 tanks for Collar this year, and couldn't resist. Though I had less free time (too muh...
Never saw tetra tucano in flesh but on pictures they are lovely tiny fish. Afaik they are wild caught so that might explain high price.
Oh, very nice glosso carpet!
Roy, it's a kind of fossilized wood rocks.
It's great to see your new tank with absolutely clear silicon work. No more black silicone, yay!
Looks great. It seems you have some room at the back, do you plan to put there more plants or just dedicated to be empty?
Can you tell the height of Aquasky stand? Around 13 cm?
Really great tank. Interesting to see combination of anubias and buce. Need to try it at home.
[Enter text here] lol
Looks much better
Oh it seems your quest for perfect fish becomes only harder - too much choice is hard! :-)
I read quitem the contrary about lamp eyes from the girl who bred them. They were perfect jumpers in her tank.
Have you considered Vietnamese...
Really great thread. Thank you for Lux to PAR conversion and reference table.
Awesome autumn colors, Jordi! Really like the changes in layout.
Re planting in moss: as one might said: pourqoi pas? Why not? The stem plants...
Well, finally we can see the planted tank :-D
Testing new LED light of local manufacturer:
[ATTACH]IMG_5249 by Alexander, on Flickr
Very very bright light, I've already purchased a dimmer.
Love the waterfalls from hc I guess?
Why do you use so short inlets? There is no room to let them go to the bottom of the tank or there are other...
