Kom på en sak jag skulle vilja se.
Hur du löst det med led till ditt rena 420l akvarium.
Har ett likadant och mina lysrörshållare är så gammal å sköra så de går sönder i plasten. Har bara 1 av de två kvar.
Är mest orolig att en led-ramp inte kommer hålla under locket då de blir rätt fuktigt där.

Det blir fuktigt, men Fluval 2.0 är vatten säker.

The tank looks great! I do low tech planted tanks, too. Just a thought, to control blowing sand , maybe some gravel along the front of the tank. It will probably mix with the sand and help hold it in place. Good video, like your style.

Great video brother. We need more videos and more products out there for truly low tech tanks. Not everyone can afford the expensive substrate, lights, Co², and fertilizers out there. Thank you very much for sharing this video and as always keep doing what you do if it works for you.

Great video! The tank looks awesome, I agree with everything you said, and like your commentary. I believe that in this hobby, the co2, fertilizer, super technical side of plant keeping is promoted a little to much. Not to say that it is not very beneficial, if not a must for growing some plants, I think it makes the average aquarium keeper, intimidated about having a nice planted tank. I have been keeping plants for years, this way, plain sand, or just inert gravel substrate, with hardy low light, low tech plants. So don't be afraid, fish tank people, plant on.
Zacks Tanks Crazy Aquarium Guy
Zacks Tanks Crazy Aquarium Guy - 2 years ago
Yeah for sure! And that is my number one reason for the channel. To inspire people! :-)
It is already people in the comment section that ask if I am lying about not using co2 on some of my aquariums.
So I feel I need to do this for a while.
'Thanks for making a nice comment! :-)

your lighting is perfect! those rainbows look better than any i have ever seen, i bet they look 100x better in real life! do you have 4k on your phone? you could try getting some shots of the rainbows in HD . those plants are doing great as well, in another 4 months the entire bottom will be green and lush!

This was at night, they look a lot better in the morning when they usually spawn. :-)

I hope so, hate that my filters are pushing the sand back. It is not even halv an inch deep in the front.

You can also crash a tank on Co2 and make your plants dependent on it. Not saying you can't or shouldn't. Both are great!

Thank you! Sure, I have links in the description of some videos about lights. Checkout my playlist about aquarium lights. If you want.
