Aquascaping - The Art of the Planted Aquarium 2013 XL pt.2

FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/DefiniteAquascapeTV YOUTUBE: http://www.youtube.com/DefiniteAquascapeTV PAGE: http://definiteaquascape.tv Second video from The Art of the Planted Aquarium, presenting aquariums which took places 6-10. My favourite aquascapes are aquariums of the 6th and 9th places. The first one is a very nice, simple yet beautiful iwagumi layout made by Georg W. Just, and the second one is a driftwood-based composition by Tobias Fricke, with ingenious positioning of Anubias nana on top of the driftwood. There is one usunusal aquatic plant in this aquarium - it's Ranunculus fluitans, a coldwater species of plant which you can find easily in Central European rivers. All aquariums were provided by Eheim, there are standard Eheim aquarium lighting in the hoods (2 T5 fluorescent lamps) and Eheim external aquarium canister filters. No CO2 supply systems were used during the contest. The substrate was provided by Dennerle, however some scapers used their own substrate. There were no tropical aquarium fish in the aquariums because they are forbidden by the rules of the contest :)

What is the material that produced the Dragon of the eighth aquarium ?? This is innovative!
Ginny Ward
Ginny Ward - 6 years ago
I like the dragon too! I'd say it's made from resin. I've managed to make things from polymer clay and then coat them in a liquid clear resin after clay is baked. Once the clear resin is cured, the sculptures are aquarium safe for both plants and fish =)! I get all the stuff needed at Hobby Lobby (even the liquid clear resin). You can purchase more complex resins online - I just don't like mixing all the chemical components together and pouring them into a mold..I'd rather sculpt with my hands. Hope this helps=)!

Hi your tanks are impressive. Im looking to do a freshwater tank design and was wondering what Driftwood you use.? I don't want to use plastic and want to go for the natural look. I've heard that tannins can leak into the water from the driftwood. How do the designers overcome this.?
Kevin Pereira
Kevin Pereira - 6 years ago
+Matt S Boil it. Or let it soak in water for a couple of weeks. Or you can just put it in the tank and let it go away on its own. My yellow water went away after some water changes. But tannins aren't bad

How much does it coast for things like these I have a 20g tank that i might have to move the fish in it to a larger one and I want to try and do this is it really expensive to do a small one?
Jock Monco
Jock Monco - 6 years ago
+Pieman4233
Get a 5kilogram pressurized Co2 tank (welding tanks are cheap and the welding supply stores will refill them when needed !!but purchase a Co2 regulator designed specifically for the aquarium hobby - welding regulators cannot be fine tuned for aquascaping use) - it will last for more than a year and can be refilled for around 12euros or 15dollars.
1 watt/ liter T5 general purpose, balanced spectrum tubes e.g white/warm combo - 6 hours/day from e.g 4pm to 10pm.
Get a canister filter (put the CO2 in the intake head of the canister filter - 100% efficiency w/o reactor, diffuser etc.) , and a really tiny internal filter that will help circulating the water.
3ml of micro, 10 ml of macro plant nutrition every other day.
Buy the micro but DIY your macro.
Forget the flourish excel (glutaraldehyde=disinfectant - can get it cheap if you want it -will kill shrimp and melt some plants) and all the other expensive products.

All in all, !!do not overdose plant nutrition, !!do not over illuminate, get pressurized CO2.
Get red cherry shrimps, 2-3 panda corys and around 5 neon tetras, tops - less fish, more shrimps.
80% of the aquascaping hobby is bullshit and a mere rip off.
LESS IS MORE!

For those who want similar gravel results I'd start with natural toned aquarium gravel (pet sections) of various stores; and buy a smaller portion of natural colored river rocks in the Walmart hobby section or Bed Bath and Beyond section of home-decor (bagged river rocks) =)! You could also check lawn&garden stores or hobby/craft stores for bagged river rocks.

T Bates
T Bates - 7 years ago
I just figured out the best trick ever, you douse your tank with a bottle of green food coloring, let it soak overnight and use activated carbon and/or zeolite to filter it out in the morning haha
DefiniteAquascapeTV
DefiniteAquascapeTV - 8 years ago
+T Bates Yes, exactly! :) Thanks for your input! :)
T Bates
T Bates - 8 years ago
Also you should check out exactly what kinda plants you're buying and whether they were grown emersed (leaves above water) or immersed (entire plant below water).  You may be purchasing non-aquatic plants, or simply dealing with plants converting from their emersed forms to their immersed forms, and the lack of green could be a sign that your plants need some Iron or fertilization in general.  I find that even if you have a low-tech tank it makes sense to still dose K, Fe, and micros.
DefiniteAquascapeTV
DefiniteAquascapeTV - 8 years ago
These tanks were set up long time before the show, and plants stay green all the time when they have good conditions. You must be doing something wrong, be it water parameters, lighting, or fertilization...

DefiniteAquascapeTV
DefiniteAquascapeTV - 8 years ago
That's true, they are sort of static, especially those without any filtration, which causes water movement. When there is some current it looks far better :)

They set up these tanks at home, well in advance before the show (like 3-4 months, minimum), and then they disassemble everything, and transport the decorations and plants to the exhibition hall, where a tank of similar dimensions is waiting for them, together with water and substrate (all is provided by the organizers).

DefiniteAquascapeTV
DefiniteAquascapeTV - 9 years ago
Well, it can be done. And maybe it's even easier than cleaning gravel, because when the carpet is present you won't be able to suck gravel granules (happens to me all the time when I do vacuuming of the substrate in my tanks). But the most important thing is that when there are not too many fish - there is actually no need for vacuming. The dirt is falling down between plants and substrate, and stays there for plants' roots to consume it :)
duhmey
duhmey - 9 years ago
For example, the first tank in this vid, how do you clean the substrate if the tank has fish? Freshwater can not be self sustaining right? I'm just so use to vacuum cleaning my gravel it seems like a full carpet substrate would be a headache....

Sure they do. First, water movement is good, second, mechanical filtration is also good, third, additional bacteria in the filter will not do any harm - the more bacteria, the more stable the environment conditions.

I wonder, are those actual rocks in the first take or fake, and if real, what kind?

Hehe, I don't have any scapes - I'm not an aquascaper, I'm a film-maker, and to be honest, I was never sucessful in planted aquariums. As for my fishroom, I can't rule out that one day I will film some of it - but at the moment I have too much other, already overdue materials from various aquatic events, and I don't want to add new stuff. I'm too busy already :)

good for you bro, your videos are very entertaining, i`m sure in time you will make enough. As a subscriber i would be interested to see your own scapes, fish-room etc

Hi mate :) Yes, it is a sort of a job. There are many YouTubers who make a living by making videos and uploading them to YT. However, my income from YT is not enough to support myself financially - this is why I also breed fish and sell them. Actually, just recently I've quit my job at the University, to do only this - breeding fish and running DefiniteAquascapeTV.

Hello! I was wondering if this is a job? Like a career of a sort. The DefiniteAquascape. I'm 15 years old right now and want to go in to the field of aquatics. I don't know what it would take. But I'm all for this!

DefiniteAquascapeTV
DefiniteAquascapeTV - 9 years ago
And yes - sure you can plant it in sand.
DefiniteAquascapeTV
DefiniteAquascapeTV - 9 years ago
Don't think so - they have different requirements in terms of water parameters.
DefiniteAquascapeTV
DefiniteAquascapeTV - 9 years ago
What is your water's carbonate hardness? If the water is soft, then adding CO2 will lower the pH. If change in the pH is too large in a short time - fish may not survive it... :/

Hey sorry to ask too much but is the CO2 good for the fishes? Cuz I added some liquid for my current plants but it kill most of my fish and some got infected with fungus Nd died afterwards, thanks

can you put rainbow fish, angels, dwarf gouramies and discus in the same tank. around 350l
DefiniteAquascapeTV
DefiniteAquascapeTV - 9 years ago
Eleocharis needs some more light, CO2 and fertilization to thrive. Without it it will stay alive, but not growing a lot.
DefiniteAquascapeTV
DefiniteAquascapeTV - 9 years ago
That depends on the species of fish - there are some specied not suitable for planted aquariums. But most of the typical aquarium fish you could easily put itno such aquariums, and nothing bad would happen. The fish are not present in the tanks only because it's forbidden by the rules of the contest :)

Hey man one more thing! Can this plant be planted in sand? And do I need any fertilizer? Thanks I've subscribe to ur channel :)

Eleocharis parvula.

The first aquarium, what's the name of the grass?
Metalfishead
Metalfishead - 9 years ago
What's the name of the grass anyone? Thanks
DefiniteAquascapeTV
DefiniteAquascapeTV - 9 years ago
Well, "nature aquarium" in a classical style would require CO2, cuz the amount of light is very high. But, nevertheless, one can have a beautiful aquarium without lots of light, CO2 and intense fertilization. Read about Low Tech style aquariums, you'll see what I mean :)

The tank with the dragon was cool, but not very natural looking. To me it seems like that one would be hard to keep at the right water level. Thanks for sharing the video.

Attention!! i need some advice on DIY Co2 for the ppl that have co2: At nights plants produce co2; so do you all take the tube from out of the tank every night or you just leave it in to continue the co2 flow/?? would the excess co2 from the DIY co2 affect the plants or fish? Pls help and thanks in advance:)
DefiniteAquascapeTV
DefiniteAquascapeTV - 9 years ago
Yup, exactly, just a white plate, skewed towards the top, and a small light at the bottom, behind the aquarium. Take a closer look at 0:55 - 1:02, the white background is clearly visible behind the aquarium.
Sean Theo
Sean Theo - 9 years ago
Beautiful aquariums! What background do you use to get that gradient effect in that first aquarium? Just any white background with a light placed behind it?
DefiniteAquascapeTV
DefiniteAquascapeTV - 9 years ago
Well, more info on yor tank is needed. There are many carpeting plants to choose from, but tie choice depends on the conditions you have. What size of the aquarium, what illumination, what are the water parameters, do you want to add ferts/CO2 or not, etc.
Jason Stroman
Jason Stroman - 9 years ago

Hey, so it seems that there is some "background" behind the idea of making such layout? It's based on Chinese mythology?
Deborah Armstrong
Deborah Armstrong - 9 years ago
I didn't get it either at first, then I saw the bit with the road on the part above water There is a Chinese belief that the world rests on the back of a sleeping dragon For maximum stability & good joss, you should build on the dragon's back Things built on the dragon's tail would be prone to collapse, & for absolute disaster, build on the dragon's eye....hey, how would YOU like a house in your eye? In HongKong, you can hire experts to make sure your building doesn't disturb the dragon

It's Eleocharis sp., not sure what exactly - maybe E. parvula, or just normal E. accicularis. You can check Just Aquascaping website, maybe there are some more infos there about the tank :)

As usual - to make something original, about what no one would think before :) (and it's a matter of personal tase if someone likes it :) )
DefiniteAquascapeTV
DefiniteAquascapeTV - 9 years ago
Very carefully ;) ;) Hehe :) And now, seriously - there is not much to clean, actually. There are no fish in the tanks, so no fish waste, and no food leftovers. Just some trimming from time to time, cutting off a dead leaf, and that's it :) And even if there would be any fish, still the cleaning wouldn't be difficult, providing, of course, that the plants would be healthy and there would be not too much fish.

It's the aquascaper who is 9 years old, not the tank!! :)

No worries, mate :)
DefiniteAquascapeTV
DefiniteAquascapeTV - 9 years ago
Plant species is Eleocharis accicularis. For infos about substrate, conditions, etc, visit website of the aquascaper - I can't put links here, so just enter "Just Aquascaping" in Google :)

DefiniteAquascapeTV

100x50x50 cm, so it's about 250 liters, so it's about 66 US gallons :)

DefiniteAquascapeTV
DefiniteAquascapeTV - 9 years ago
Yeah, when one forgets about the kitsch-like part of this aquascape - it's quite interesting :) After all, the plants on the bottom are well composed and look nice. It's not a nature aquarium, more like an "orderly garden" (not sure if "orderly" is the right word, I mean that there is order in the way the plants are arranged :) ), but still - looking good :)

scarhbar23
scarhbar23 - 9 years ago
I don't think so. This guy (Nils) lives in Europe. To ship it, you would have to empty the tank of water and keep the aquascape intact and moist. To keep it this nice looking, you would need the nutrients that this person is using. Also, you would probably want to match these lights. The cost of shipping, plus the tank, nutrients, and everything else would probably scare a lot of people away. It'd be much easier to set it up at home :)
