Careful! Its easy to build but without more plants or fast growing plants it wil be difficult to maintain when you don't want algae plagues

Love this Mate!! I really wanted a planted tank but for a 60cm tank.. You literally went into my head... Took all my thoughts - South American fish, small as possible, light coloured gravel, plants that dont require CO2, etc etc!! Cant fault this! Only thing i im adding extra is 3D background, a pair of Blue Rams and a pair of Apisto. aggazzi... Thank you once again!!!

Stupid question...why change the light tube once a year? (Awesome tank by the way!)
Christian Brams
Christian Brams - 5 years ago
+Steve Rickard For every day a light tube burns its light decreases in power, and most important in light quality. If you change it every year (for T8 standard) you are sure that the light provided is good. And that keeps the plants happy and keeps the algae away.

Looks really good,
Problem i have with it, i feel like its cheated with the pre-made wood/plant,
The main visual point is already done and i would imagine it would of cost alot to buy,
But still looks good

Hi there just wondering how do u prevent the anaerobic bacteria from growing? Since it's sand substrate and so intricately planted. Hope you'll reply, thanks! :)
Christian Brams
Christian Brams - 7 years ago
Just rinse the sand when you change water. Its pretty easy to remove all the stones and wood now and then and rinse more easy.

Where can I find drift wood with the epiphytic plants already attached for my aquarium.

I'd appreciate if you could direct me to a website/Store witihin the uk!

aliciacb8284747274 - 4 years ago
Lewis Coveney I know this is old but Tropica sells anubias already attached to driftwood. You can pick up their plants through Pets at Home, eBay and maybe through your LFS. It's cheaper to do it yourself though in many cases, SwellUK sells driftwood at reasonable prices and Pets at Home do individual anubias plants for £3.99 or 3 for £11

Thanks, But just to help out, I wasn't just asking you haha
Christian Brams
Christian Brams - 7 years ago
Hey, just because i used the woods with plants in this video doesn't mean that i know all the retailers in the world.
Its the Italian producer "Anubias" that makes these, I guess you can check with them for retailer in your area.
My guess would have been that The green machine have them as supplier?

+Christian Brams Apparently fishes is acceptable if it used as a plural, ie more than one species of fish together.
Douglas Hohlfelder
Douglas Hohlfelder - 7 years ago
Fish is technically plural.  Kinda like Moose.  He's basically being a dick.  Great looking tank, made so easy!

Are plastic plants very harmful for the aquarium?
Christian Brams
Christian Brams - 7 years ago
No not harmful at all. But they dont make any good as the real plants do either. A well working flora is the best filter you can get and minimizes the algae growth and other problems you might get in the tank.

one more question, do I need filter ? what you mean by pump ? just air pump ?
Christian Brams
Christian Brams - 7 years ago
No, no air pump. This set comes with an internal pump with filter. Its a EHEIM 2008, from the Pick up series.
You do need some kind of filter and a pump for circulation.
Arfan Abdalwahab
Arfan Abdalwahab - 7 years ago
You did a great job Christian. I am wondering about the type of plants that you used. What is the name of that plant?  would you mind to tell me please ?
Christian Brams
Christian Brams - 7 years ago
Sure. Its Microsorum pteropus, Anubias nana and some kind of Vesicularia, not sure which.

aquascaping with plastic plant ..well ya EASY mode for the start but natural plant give way more positive things to your tank than plastic one ... and i don`t mind if you like plastic plant but the fun fact about aquascaping is watching those plant growing this is my opinion but i agree they look way more natural than before and are very less expensive ..still a nice set up by the way finally i still like it
jean-francois Hebert
jean-francois Hebert - 7 years ago
+Christian Brams
not at all my point is they really look real i said this is an awesome aquascape too i really like it but all my tank are planted with real plant ...i said they look really more natural than what plastic plant look like 10 year ago ...im sorry for if my message wasn`t clear im french canadian and my english is not so good ...hoo and dude it wasn`t like an hater message or something plastic aquascape are easy for someone who start with fishtank but real plant are way more beneful at long time but need more knowledge
Christian Brams
Christian Brams - 7 years ago
You got to be kidding with me, do you mean for real that this looks like plastic plants?!?

If you really do mean it. I can tell you that in this set up there is 100% natural materials, and all of the plants are real, living plants. And they grow!. 

Im glad you like it. =)

do you put co2 diffuser in it?
Christian Brams
Christian Brams - 7 years ago
Nope, this set up is not powered by anything else then 15W light tube and Tropica´s fertilizer. Its meant to be an easy scape for beginners and folk´s that want an easy and nice tank.

by the way bro, how about the other specs ? the lighting and the temp itself ..
Christian Brams
Christian Brams - 7 years ago
Tnx. 
This tank is a standard kit from EHEIM, supplied with Jäger 50w heater and Pick up internal filter. Light is supplied with a 15W T8 tube, i think Sylvania standard. I always try to keep the temp around 25-26 C.
