Finally, going to sale my beloved Ada 60p for something bigger; an optiwhite 80x40x40.
Plans? Making it in the top 50 at Iaplc 2021. :)lol:)
Received the black cabinet today, now I’m starting to look for new filtration, what would you guys recommend (it’s 128liters tank)? Looking for...
Hey everyone :)
In October 2019 I have been to Japan and have done lots of aquascaping activities. I made a cinematic video with the best highlights of my trip. I hope you will enjoy the moments through my camera lens. Please subscribe if you like the video.
During the trip I have been to:
Tank - Fire Aqua 1500 x 210 x 240, 10mm low iron glass. 20G / 75 ltr
Stand - Ikea Kallax bookshelf's as stand, with extra soild wood top.
Filter - 1 x 1400lph canister filters (eheim copy)
Light - MML LED Tube on a Cade hanging kit
Hardscape - Bog wood / random wood
Substrate - Gravel
Found the inspiration for this by walking in the forest...would like to create something very natural looking, with simple plantation.
31x21x25cm, 17l, optiwhite fireaqua
Sunsun mini canister filter 400l/h

I broke down my 45p for the summer the other day, I am away for most of it so can't keep the tank going on its own. Having no other tanks set up and an empty one lying around with some hardscape I got the itch to put something together...
I will have to wait to fully set this up in a few months...
Following Roots and Grit, Nature's Path will have a more defined hardscape and hopefully i won't let it be covered to much.
I managed to get my hands on some more ferns and will also change the lighting and go for led.

Hey guys! been lurking for a while now, thought it'd be my turn to take on an high-tech aquascape and would appreciate your comments and inputs as it goes along. Please excuse my bad English /:
what we have so far:
JBL 901 Cristalprofi filter.
inline Hydor 200w heater.
Figured i start the new year with a new setup in my 200 litre.
So, i worked even more on the hardscape part and i'm well aware of the grade of maintenance i'll have to do.
But where's the fun in it if there's no challenge?
Starter pack :
LxWxH - 100x55x45 cm
Lighting - 6x39w (3000k and 6500k...

Hi everyone from Sunny South Africa! :)
I'm starting this journal in slight retrospect. Tank has been set up for four days now and seems to be coming along well, but it's early days yet... Without further a do, here are the specs:
Lighting: 2 x 24w t5ho (6500k) diy
Almost 10 years ago I created a low-maintence aquascape - mainly ferns, Anubis and crypts.
Today I took the final shot of my latest 'scape - mainly ferns, Anubis and crypts.
Note the difference. Mainly use of hardscape, open foreground and more complex textures.
I thought it was an...
I thought I'd share this video with you all after some of the comments I've received asking "how do you do it?" etc.
I'm by no means a perfect plant grower! I have issues with my aquascapes and plants as much as the next man.
Perseverance and patience are usually all it takes to...
I thought I'd post a quick photo of my Superfish Expert 70.
No CO2 or liquid carbon. Occasional ferts (Colombo Pro) and Colombo Pro Soil. Internal filter and It hasn't had a water change in 3 months.
Plants are mostly crypts, buces, Rotata and some Anubias, Cyperus.
I set this up about 7 weeks ago. To be honest wasn't sure about the lighting - it measured 5 umol at the substrate! However, all the plants are growing and I'm even getting red R. rotundifolia!
Using Colombo range (soil, ferts, liquid CO2), non-CO2 gas injection. Aquafleur plants.
Latest FTS (Week 8):
Tank: ADA Cube Garden 60P (60x30x36)

I thought I'd post pics of my current 'scapes before I tear them down soon and create some new layouts. Both have been featured fairly recently in PFK magazine although they've been re-scaped a little.
The first is a Natural Aquario 65x40x45cm. I set it up as a sub-tropical set-up and...
Name: The Green Stream
Setup Date: 13/03/2015
Description: The Green Stream was born as an idea a few months, the concept was to replicate the underwater image of a river bank with sand bed where the vegetation brings out the transition between the bed and the margin, which is the perspective in...
I made one more Wabi-Kuza, it's the forth but the second that i publish.
This is a record breaking size :) - 38 cm!!!
It's made by 5 ready made Wabi-Kusas (with Rotala sp. Ceylon, Rotala Colorata, alguns Echinodorus, etc) and some caught-on-nature mosses that i've been keeping for almost 3...
I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year! :)
Here's a few shots of my home tank, a 30cm cube.
It's been set up for a few months and is surprisingly low maintenance. I'm not using CO2 injection but add liquid carbon and Tropica Specialised daily, 1ml each. I...
Hi all, I decided to start a new scape back in November last year, its currently 3 months old.
Here are a couple of pictures showing how it starting and how it looks today.
Lighting - Arcadia Lighting system
Filter - Tetra Tec Ex1200

I've recently re-scaped my TMC Signature so I thought I'd start a new journal on here.
Not really a groundbreaking aquascape - re-using the moss-covered Manzi from my previous two layouts that you can see here - George's TMC Signature | Page 38 | UK Aquatic Plant Society
Edit* some specs :geek:
Natural Aquario 120 x 45 x 55 superclear glass
Natural Aquario Cabinet in matt grey
Natural Aquario Light Arm
Natural Aquario Stainless Steel inlet and outlets
3 TMC Aquaray 1000nd led tiles on MMS rail and hanging kit
TMC Aquaray 8 way controller
It's been an interesting year and a half and I (think) I've learned a lot.
I'm ready to tear down my tank and start anew. I like the nano layout, it allows you to make mistakes without serious financial consequences. It does however allow you make mistakes very easily. One small change can...
The IAPLC 2013 is now open for entries. Closing date for entries is May 31st 2013.

Hi all, I've been browsing the forums for some time now and after finally setting up my 60L I thought it's about time I joined up! I have been keeping fish and plants for over 5 years. After just recently moving house I have set up my 60L tank and it's currently on day 11. This is my first high...
I'm really excited to be aquascaping again for the first time since May last year.
I have a TMC Signature 60x45x30cm (clear silicone) with gloss white cabinet. I need to cut out a half moon in the cabinet side for the filter hoses because unfortunately they're not pre-cut. I did...
