Long time no see, I just wanted to post a picture with my current arrangement for my little ones, the tank was set 2 years ago and has gone through different plants arrangements, the soil was unchanged (OK Nature Soil) works a treat.
Nothing fancy for a 60l, light 18w T8 with a reflector (wonder...
I see that many folks still have questions about pearling, especially why it isn't happening in their tanks. :)
So here's a nice article I've found, feel free to discuss it further:
Pearling - True or False?
I know some people are wondering what is my next low tech project so here it is.
Tank: GA Opti-white 60x30x36 cm (big thanks Viktor)

Light: Resun 2 x 15w T8 Osram 865

Planned to start an emersed tank for a while and since the goods for the other tank arrived I gave it a go.
7l clear glass tank covered with a glass lid and plastic wrap to keep the moist in.
ADA Sarawak Sand
Rotala sp. "Colorata"...

The good: I can also clean the back glass without removing the spray bar
Hello boys and girls,
Finally the new soil arrived so I can start the journal.
I did a fast sketch so you can see where this one is going to.
Looks like a mountain scape but I plan it to be a little different, you'll see tomorrow when I'll post the first photos how it will look like.
I wouldn't have started this journal but I see many people struggling with dosing I think this one is a good example how to keep things simple and less frustrating especially if you are a beginner.
This was not intended to be an aquascape nor a hardware showcase, I don't have the proper...
Just started my experiment by keeping on the background light 2x24w t5s during the photoperiod (indirect light bouncing from the white wall, the unit is placed slightly below the tank level). Anyone into this?
After a week I can say that my rotalas near the back glass are pinkish but crawling...
Hi boys and girls,
After a long absence I wanted to tell you a thing or two about my aquarium.
Unfortunately I had a problem using the old account so I had to register a new one.
So.... the aquarium:
