Viktor

This tank is truely world class, the latest pictures are fantastic!

I really like your plant selection they really compliment each other well.

The glassware looks good, really gives it clean feel. The equipment is far less visible and your eye is naturally draw to the scape!

That RTBS is a fair size !?

Keep up the good work! :thumbup:

Re: 240l tank rescape (name coming later)

WHat an amazing setup Viktor, I think you have really suceeded on this tank and I have to agree the glass wear makes a hell of a difference, I was curious about the original top of the tank did you remove it and have you had any problems with the loss of the support as I am considering removing the top bracing and plastic from my tank

Thanks Vito :thumbup:
I really not liked my hood at the very begining. So was refreshing when i got the Arcadia unit and do the open tank since then. Did not had any problem. But i lose around 10-15 liters/week which i need to refill.

Yeah parvula is running very fast in a good soil. Not sure there was any effect, but because my old substrate stayed in the tank (not replaced it), i put an ADA Multi Bottom (fert stick) in every 10 cm before the planting. So maybe this helped or not but within 2 months this become a very dense carpet. Only trimmed once since the setup, which was a few months after the start.

Re: 240l tank rescape (name coming later)

cheers guys. a bit of an update on the tank in a different way :D
i plan to throw the tank into the ADA IAPLC this year, so currently just making the final touches and will start to shoot the clean photos in the next month or so.

anyway i bought a new toy (Canon EOS550D) and yesterday i shoot my second short video with it. the video is more of a test this was captured at 10am and all the glasses reflect everything etc. will do a prof shot later at night time. but i thought i do a capture on the feeding and the fertilizing routine right after the light goes on.

no audio, no prof editing etc. just how i captured it and transcoded into a usable format.

enjoy ;)
