In this video I show aquariums arranged by members of Association of Fishkeepers from Wrocław (http://www.wrta.org.pl) and Club of Lake Malawi Fans (http://www.klub-malawi.pl). 00:21 Aquarium arranged by members of Association of Fishkeepers from Wrocław was an imitation of a rice field. Poster visible at 00:31 describes what a rice field is, and what species of fish live there. Terraces in the aquarium were made of slices of styrofoam, carved to a desired shape and glued together using silicone. The surface of the styrofoam was smeared with brown silicone and covered with peat and with some sand (in the lower part). One powerhead sucked water from the main compartment and pumped it up, where the small house and the outlet pipe made of bamboo was. There is a small window in the wall of the middle terrace - we cut a hole in the styrofoam and attached glass pane, glued tight using the silicone. The green grass planted in the aquarium is a true rice - we got it from a friend of one of our memebers, who visited Vietnam once and brought himself some real rice. We planted the rice on rectangular fragments of flat filtration sponge, so we could easily transfer the rice from house to the exhibition hall. Fish present in the tank are several young Trichogaster trichopterus, and one male siamese fighting fish Betta splendens. The fighting fish was not w wild strain - we thought that the ornamental variety would be better, because we know that Bettas jump, and we thought that ornamental, long-fin variety will not be able to jump. But we were wrong, as this video clearly shows: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lkfWg35lgXU 02:33 - aquariums arranged by members of Club of Malawi Fans, stocked with fish from Lake Malawi in Africa. 02:40 - following species of fish were present in this tank: Aulonocara maylandii Aulonocara jacobfreibergi "Mamelela" Placidochromis phenochilus "Lupingu" Sciaenochromis fryeri "Iceberg" 03:40 - following species of fish were present in this tank: Pseudotropheus demasoni Metriaclima sp. "Membe deep" 04:20 - following species of fish were present in this tank: Labeotropheus trewavasae Melanchromis interruptus Metriaclima callainos Labidochromis sp. "Hongi" 'red top'

Rice field is frickin awesome!! I just got a couple large aquariums and am doing asian style scenery and background on 1 and I am now going to add this above on both ends but without such a large base so I can still have full use of aquarium. Just a couple bamboo supports. I frickin love it. Great work, whoever made it....

That's an awesome beta rice paddy setup. It's striking how it rises and forms a miniature mountain with streams and pools flowing down it. Very unusual and interesting video as usual!

Thanks for your comment :) Yeah, this window was a good idea, we even wanted to make more, because it looked very interesting when Betta "navigated" between rice stems :)
 And good luck with your TV! :)

Thank you so much for making these videos! I can see that there are lots aquarium conferences in Poland!

Hey :) We made terraces of plates of styrofoam (10 and 15 cm thick), carved to a desired shape and glued to each other with silcone. The surface of styrofoam was smeared with brown silicone, and dried peat was attached to it. Very easy to do, it looks more complicated as it really was.

WOW! I REALLY like the rice patty theme for the setup.These kinds of videos give me many ideas for my aquariums! I don't have any fish and I mainly only make these kinds of stuff for my Japanese fire belly newts.
great video!

DefiniteAquascapeTV - 7 years ago
Yeah, for firebelly newts such layout could be great :) (providing that the whole land part would be secured somewhow, to prevent newts from walking away... ;)

Welcome you ;-) I have ricefields in my country side that not need to visit :D I always come to there at weekend with my sweety wife and children. There does have some fishes with local name, I do not know their scientific names exactly.

part 2:) oczywiscie jest to dla osób chcących odtworzyć jak najlepsze warunki typowe oraz doprowadzić do jakiegoś tarła. W przypadku akwarium tylko widokowego można trochę pokombinować. Takim dobrym zbiornikiem i typowym dla malawi byłoby 120d x 50sz x 40w. W takim układzie jest sporo dna, ryby poruszałyby się na całej wysokości i można by tam trzymać 3 gatunki w proporcji 1+3.

Jest to możliwe ale nienaturalne dla rybki. Po pierwsze pyszczak żyje w sferze denno skalnej wiec nawet nie pływał by do góry i byłaby to sfera "martwa" a po drugie buduje terytorium na zasadzie powierzchni dna i kryjówek lub możliwości ich zbudowania. Mając małą powierzchnie dna ryzykuje się zbyt dużo walk, eliminacje gatunków łagodnych lub ich zbyt duże zastraszenie. Dlatego dla malawi stosuje się akwaria niższe a długie i szerokie bo malawi musi mieć dno do terytorium, życia i rozrodu.

Hmm, ale może dałoby się zaplanować jakiś rozbudowany w pionie zbiornik z Malawi? W końcu kamieni i kamiennych ścianek jest chyba w tym jeziorze sporo...?

Ryżowisko ciekawe:) pomysł, dokładność, kolorystyka. Prosty pomysł a jaki piękny:) Akwarium w 3:40 za wysokie na malawi. Jednak dla malawi stosuje się wymiar niższy ale długi i szeroki.
