Aquascaping - Aquarium Ideas from Aquatics Live 2012, part 2

FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/DefiniteAquascapeTV YOUTUBE: http://www.youtube.com/DefiniteAquascapeTV PAGE: http://definiteaquascape.tv Second part of the video-report from Aquatics Live 2012 show, organized in London on 10-11th November. This time I show aquariums at the booth of AquaJardin company. Altogether five aquariums, the first one is marine saltwater aquarium manufactured by the company Red Sea. The layout consists of living rock, there are no hardcorals here, and there are some Scalefin Anthias, and some other saltwater tropical fish. The three aquarium setups are freshwater, planted tanks. Aquarium plants are provided by Tropica. The first tank has plants for beginners, easy to keep and grow in low-light condition, without CO2 supplementation. Mostly they are Microsorum and Cryptocoryne species. The aquarium is stocked with fish of the Hyphessobrycon genus. The second aquarium is a moderate-level tank, with plants requiring higher levels of light, aquarium fertilizers, and CO2 supplementation. It is stocked with beautiful Electric Blue Ram cichlids. And finally, the third planted aquarium, the biggest of them, is an advance-level setup, with plants requiring high level of light, delicately balanced amounts aquarium fertilizers, and CO2 supplementation. There are nice tropical aquarium fish here, namely Beckford's pencilfish and Apistogramma agassizi. And finally, the fourth planted aquarium at AquaJardin's booth is a really small Do Aqua! tank, planted with Myriophyllum stemmed plants, and stocked with Sawbwa resplendens and one Betta fish. No LED lighting was used in these aquariums, only T5 fluorescent tubes or compact fluorescent lamps.

Hi. You're tank designs are impressive. I was looking to do a freshwater tank design and looking to use Driftwood. Can you recommended any types of driftwood that you or the designers have used that work well. I have researched driftwood in aquariums and have found that they can discolour the water and that you may need to boil them in hot water or repeatedly expose them to water remove any tannins prior to adding it to a tank so it doesn't create murky or brown water. Can you please help me with this problem or suggest how you're designers over come this. The naturalistic look is best for me and i rather not use plastic. Thanks

I think you can have a nice planted tank for far less 500 bucks. I don't know prices int he US (or where-ever you come from), but I know that a nice tank can be created using simple, basic components. Look for "Low Tech aquarium" on Google, you'll find out what I'm talking about :) Also, there are several forums dedicated to planted tanks, like ukaps.org, plantedtank.net or aquaticplantcentral.com - there should also be subforums about low tech tanks.

7:05 Siamese Algae Eater the best way to prevent Algae growth in tank without any use of chemical :) this is my opinion. please correct me if i am wrong ^_^
DefiniteAquascapeTV
DefiniteAquascapeTV - 6 years ago
+shubham mandal No worries :) These fish are Nannostomus beckfordi - they are from the Characidae family (same as neon tetra) and originate from South America. So they don't have much in common with SAEs, which are Cyprynids and originate from Asia. As for planted tanks, visit http://plantedtank.net, http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com or http://ukaps.org - these forums are dedicated to planted aquariums and there are numerous helpful people there :)

AS for substrate, check Tropica's website, "Layouts" section. These tanks are mentioned there, and there is a complete list of plants, substrate, equipment etc.

Vallisneria sp., some crypts Cryptocoryne sp.,Staurogyne repens, Microsorum "Windelov" and some kind of moss on the driftwood, probably Taiwan moss.

Beautiful aquariums! Can anyone tell me what the plants in the "Tropica Easy Plants" tank are? And what kind of substrate is used?

Did you check "Rapid LED"? I don't know about the other brands you mentioned, but Rapid LED seem to be easy to set up and configure, and it is also not very expensive... (but I didn't use it, I just like the idea of making your own LED fixture)

Is that true that the lights that I mentioned are not really towards the top level in the $250 range? I am curious what is the best LED that I could buy for tops $270? I couldn't find a site that has ALL existing LED maker brands (like with pc products :P), also, there is not much decent info on this topic. It should have more comparisons etc. Also, I was messaging to guys who have tanks with a light for over 2 years, since their plants are still like new, and beautiful, but no answer yet...

007gametester - 7 years ago
Hi! I was looking to get a decent LED for my 30 gallon 32" long tall freshwater amazon style tank. I was looking at the kessils, but god they are expensive. I would have to spend 500 with everything to set up my tank with kessil A150 amazons. I was looking at the Current USA Satellite Freshwater LED Plus and the Marineland Reef Capable LED Lighting System and Marineland Double Bright LED Lighting Systems, but Age of Aquariums guys (long Beach CA) told me that all of them are a big crap... :S
DefiniteAquascapeTV
DefiniteAquascapeTV - 7 years ago
Hmmm, I don't think wave maker is a good idea... If you want a gentle current, just use the outlet of the filter. Freshwater fish are not used to waves, they prefer to stay in the current (these which live in flowing waters), instead of being constantly pushed back and forth by the waves.

First off, I want to say thank you for the videos..... But I do have a question for you, I have a standard 55 gallon aquarium with neon tetras and rainbow fish. Would it be okay for me to add a wave maker to the tank? I love the gentle sway of the leaves and fish in the tank, but I do not want to harm the fish.....
DefiniteAquascapeTV
DefiniteAquascapeTV - 7 years ago
4 gallons is still slighlty too small - minimum 6, if not more. Enter "keeping betta fish" in Google, you'll find a link to "bettafish" site, with lots of useful infos about keeping bettas.
DefiniteAquascapeTV
DefiniteAquascapeTV - 7 years ago
No, it's Sawbwa resplendens, originating from Lake Inle in Myanmar.

There is no one simple answer to such question. Various plants require various conditions - but most of the time soft and slightly acidic water is better than hard and alkaline.

Well, Rams would probably not harm adult shrimps, but they would eat young ones, I think... However, during molting, even the adults could be damaged by Rams, so I'm not sure if it would be possible to keep Rams&shrimps for longer time.

"Spider's butt"? You mean it ate a spider? That's perfectly normal, these fish feed on insects in nature :)

SilentScreamer - 8 years ago
Well that's new to me! I was concerned about him eating other's babies and smaller tankmates. You know last year my 2 month-old show betta killed and bit off a spider's butt. I thought these fish can become nas~ty sometimes :D
DefiniteAquascapeTV
DefiniteAquascapeTV - 8 years ago
Guys, fighting fish are fighting mostly against their own kind. They don't pay much attention to other tank mates, and sometimes they need to be pretected from them (like from tiger barbs, for instance, which will nip betta's fins).
spartan381
spartan381 - 8 years ago
you can put a betta in a community tank. the one in the vid looked like a show betta. i have a betta in my tank too. the only thing i dont recommend is putting real fighter betta plakats in community tanks lol
SilentScreamer
SilentScreamer - 8 years ago
You put a betta in a tank with other fish? Isn't that a bit risky? That's a "fighting fish" afterall.
