I'm in Australia and for blackwater I use dried Banksia cones as well as the branches, bark and dried leaves off the paperbark tree - Melaleuca quinquenervia which is a member of the Melaleuca family of Australian natives from which we get Melafix.

Beautiful tank! I love the leaves and the local fish! The audio was absolutely fine for me. Perhaps the other people adjusted the speed on a previous video they watched and forgot to change it back?

I love black water biotopes and this one is gorgeous. the beautiful sunfish are perfect choice. I like to hear what the experience aquascapers use, so would have been interested in hearing about the hardware, lights, filter, etc. I'm guessing there is a sump (?) but awesome video...thanks so much.

Nice neat video. I dislike the the content of the tank. People spend money and time for just copying a local river to their tanks, what is the fun?

But you have to add tint regularly
Because when I had make,the water was becoming normal
But good video
Tank Tested
Tank Tested - 3 years ago
That's a good point and I should have addressed this in the video: As the leaves/wood break down you should always be adding a bit more to the tank. That will keep the water tinted—if you'd prefer more tint, I'd recommend using Melanesian Bogwood and not boiling it before hand.

I've always been interested in blackwater tanks, so I greatly appreciate you releasing a video on this topic! :) Definitely adding more motivation for me to setup my own blackwater tank.
