Like Cookies I've kept it successfully under extreme lean dosing. I use soft water so can't tell if your hard water would be the issue, generally...
I second that, if kept low it'll spread like crazy,
Same plants in both pictures
So I'm in no way the inventor of this trick, but I thought I'll share a pretty easy way to clean up after moss trimmings. I personally prefer to...
Thanks a Lot!
Yeah the small stones are actually a really impactful little detail. It's one of those "learn from nature" tricks when you think of...
They will :)
Your local Tropica dealer should be able to get you some
Really love these!
I'd like to keep some of the wood visible and clear to add contrast. Weeping moss grows like CRAZY!
Added about 50 Kubotai. Lovely fish, I'll post some shots later
My Pembroke Corgi puppy
3 week update:
Stems and moss has been trimmed, still a lot of coloring and shaping to do on that part.
Thinking of adding 50 Kubotai to this...
Coffee, couchview and water change :cool:

Crazy fast stem growth:eek:
Thank you very much! :D
I'm glad to hear the extra effort put in the hardscape paid off
Took almost 5 hours to prep and plant.
Filling in from last night:
Impressive write up!
Nice of you to take the time :clap:
Plants arrive on Friday, powered by Tropica:
Bucephalandra sp. 'Red' x3
Bucephalandra 'Wavy Green' x3
Totally fair point. I'm trying to do something slightly different with each scape so some will be hit or miss.
It's the OG 90p. I actually think...
Substrate went in today. Time to make a plant list :D
[ATTACH] [ATTACH] [ATTACH] [ATTACH]
Great suggestions :D
I will remember those :)
The larger pieces of wood is now glued to the rocks, while still adding some details before the substrate goes in:
"Flow" was the expression I was trying to get through with this layout. A wave was the movement of inspiration for this.
Lately I've been reading...
Moved the layout to the tank. Added some extra detail, still some to go
Thanks, it has a really interesting colour to
So the new 90p arrived yesterday, and thankfully the weather outside allows for some trial and error in the sun. Thought I would share...
Still undecided. Depends on if I can find the time to maintain both. I'm pretty strict about maintenance
Look who's grown
Got a 90p coming in next week. Meanwhile I'm testing this beautiful ADA "Blue Manten" for future projects
Sorry to hear. Did the same with a bonsai I've kept indoor throughout the winter. Better to acclimate gradually and be patient
Only sat there for a couple of hours :cool:
Wonder what PAR we're getting out here :D

Some carpet mix love
Thanks man! This scape is going down soon. Didn't really do it for me
As Fishlifelondon says, no filtration only water changes and natural balance. I'm actually not even using the light during spring because it sits...
merci, nous avons le même dicton en danois
One of the goals for this setup was to actually see and show, how simple it could be done.
The plants ofcourse benefits from growing...
Weekly and top offs :D
Still going strong - little, to no maintenance
Great to see that you're back!
You were one of my biggest inspirations when starting this hobby
Tank looks amazing!
EH does look similar, I have had a full carpet of it in the past. It is a bit to sensitive to heat for my taste, and also a very slow grower
I am - KH/GH 3-4
Yes, they're quite lovely and I wanted to try some larger species for a overall different impression - also hopefully get the red colours popping...
One of the goals for this tank is to achieve a glosso carpet similar to what the maintenance elfs over at the ADA gallery have done. Done right,...
It's hyphessobrycon sweglesi. tank is well due for a trim
A bit 'artsy'
Some buce love (phone picture)
Ranked no. 9 in the medium category of EAPLC.
I run a KH around 2-3. ADA gallery has around 4
Having kept a range og different Buces and seing lots in the NA Gallery Japan, all running on ADA ferts ( mine is even below recommended dosage...
Almost! Still change 1L every other day or so :)
And thank you!
Still going strong!
I was thinking of perhaps a group of red phantom tetras, I'd say their shape and colour would look nice in contrast to the layout. Yes...
1 week update - things are growing fast!
Amazing pictures, I’m really happy with mine so far :)
Thanks a ton! Really appreciate it :D
There’s a smaller version than this one, and I haven’t noticed any sound from it. Looking at the front, it actually takes up less space because of...
I think you’re talking about the quick connectors on the hoses. They are used for quick and easy taking off the visible part of the...
Thanks man! Appreciate it.
I think I’ve used 5 pots in this layout.
EP is really slow and picky about heat conditions, but once it gets going...
I’ve used them in the past, but always found they produced too many micro bubbles for this size of tank.
I’m using a new atomizer from...
Plants arrived Tuesday and went in the tank the day after.
Here´s some pics straight after planting and a look at what under the 'hood'....
Still the best colors in ANY light in my opinion, I like vivid colors.
Design is really nice as well and it’s quality through and...
I’d say about 25 kg :)
You guys and your sand :p
I do collaboration with Tropica, so I’ll order directly from them.
Thanks for the plant advise :)
If Tropica have everything in stock, this is the list:
Potted or Other:
Bucephalandra sp. 'Red x3
Myriophyllum mattogrossense x4
Really appreciate all the inputs and constructive criticism :)
The layout will still get some minor changes, mostly added details. To...
I get the idea and appreciate the input.
However, the plan was never for this to be a diorama style depiction of a mountain, so height was...
Moved to the tank:
Yes, in the end i found it gave the trianguler composition a unnaturally “smooth” look, without it - but good input :)
Finaly got some time to play around for ideas for my next layout.
This is what I got so far, I’m currently planing what plants to use....
Latest version is definitely an improvement. An advise would to avoid the sharp 90 degree angles unless carefully implemented in the layout -...
Thanks guys. Will post the final picture once the EAPLC embargo lifts
While dismantling the “Take a Hike” scape, the buces found a new home

Also, it’s hard to really do these comparisons on a phone. The software is doing all sorts of processing, post and dynamically on the picture...
Pond is doing great. Still very low effort in terms of maintenance.
Plants are growing superb under the ONF FLAT NANO, really enjoing everything...
It’s been living in almost complete darkness for 6 months. Surprisingly stubborn
I threw this part in the mini pond semi emersed, let’s see how...
Speaking of the devil - look what I accidentally cut a piece of during a trim
While I’m waiting for the time to tear down this scape, there’s still moments to enjoy the field of roses :p
Always happy to inspire :D except for water change, this setup is literally no maintenance
Having tried it for a couple of days I’ve really grown to like it. It’s very nice and versatile
Really appreciate the kind words, thank you
I’m probably just giving them away locally - I have bad experiences with shipping plants during winter unfortunately.
The Bolbitis is still alive...
Probably not going to reuse anything except from a couple of buces, I like getting new plants :p
I’ve updated the first post with a complete list of plants, equipment and hardscape
While I really enjoyed this tank I think it’s about time for a rescape - colors are really a nice contrast during wintertime though
Just got the Nano light today - very impressed by it so far
Trying out the ONF FLAT NANO on the mini pond - really impressed by the output and colors on this tiny lamp. Also the added height helps leaves...
It is a Aquael at the moment but I’m going to change it for something else soon
Thanks for that!
I sometimes collaborate with different brands to help promote the hobby to more people :)
Btw guys I’m giving away some Tropica plant care items over on my instagram account AquaticDK, please check it out :)

There was an initial dry right after planting - but all the plants seem to have adapted and the new growth is fresh and green with no dry outs. I...
Tank has no flow or filter, also the soil is probably still leaking ammonia.
A 90% is WC can be done in under 5 minutes, so it’s the better safe...
