It comes across as if there's a weird ruleset to aquascaping, as if they're trying to limit your creativity. Isn't art supposed to be completely open minded?

I wish they start making videos without the narrator. We already know just simply by observing, that everything the artist do it gives sense of scale, has an objective, it's part of a technique, or has some sort of aesthetic purpose.

when doing aquascape. should we always have those pwder things?
Samuel Velez
Samuel Velez - 7 years ago
i see, but adding those powder things will also help the plants grow better right? on top of ADA aqua soil? just wondering, im totally new and oblivious to aquascaping. and i would like to know how to do it. is there some kind of tutorial out there that i could follow? coz most tutorials i've seen are just how to plant.
TheGreenMachineLtd
TheGreenMachineLtd - 7 years ago
+Samuel Velez it's not always necessary. It depends on your budget. If you can afford it, use them and your plants will benefit. If you want to save some money just go for ADA Aqua Soil which is a 'complete substrate'

Aquascapes are great, yet, I would still rather go to a park that had a walking trail. I spent time on a Salt water aquarium. It was fun at the time, until the 90 gal tank leaked. its ended up a big mess. lots of work...and a money sink. that nano tanks are more reasonable for indoors.

What rules did this guy break. Seriously who has established rules for this shit.

By that I mean no one is saying "ARE YOU TRYING TO BREAK THE BOUNDARIES???"

The "Ammannia 'bonsai" is really the true Rotala indica. This is supported by botanical evidence. Even Tropica now sells it as "Rotala sp. 'bonsai', perhaps not willing to go all the way to avoid the confusion that has traditionally been associated with it and R. rotundifolia.

I like how he started his hardscape with the narrator talking about how he was breaking with convention by placing the largest stone at the end and last. Then he moved the largest stone to the center, and spent forever moving the other stones around to make room for it because he didn't place the largest stone first.

I'm also a little terrified that that big stone that is just sitting in loose substrate (designed for plant roots) is going to topple over in a few years and take out the side of the aquarium.

Zach Meador
Zach Meador - 10 years ago
A really expensively maintained one like that, yeah, sort of. There's always some small amount of algae if you have waste production and high amounts of light, and then a lot of the beneficial bacteria that grows in the aquarium can sometimes look like algae, but that typically doesn't arrive until the tank has been established for a few months.
ggdelgado
ggdelgado - 10 years ago
Wow, so basically a planted aquarium does not grow algae?
Zach Meador
Zach Meador - 10 years ago
co2 addition as well as biological competition between the substrate bacteria and the plants themselves. It takes away most of the requirements for algae growth
Kyle Drummond
Kyle Drummond - 10 years ago
very nice, but how about the filtration or oxygen!?
OhmannOcean
OhmannOcean - 10 years ago
In a tank like that you are more worried about running out of CO2 for the plants. And the plants act as a source of filtration as well. The only purpose to filters is to replicate natural bacteria, and he even said in the beginning that the additives he was adding would promote natural bacterial growth.

I went through a solid ten years of working with terrestrial habitats. Even though these tanks are sensational, they are too elegant for me to experiment with. I would love a nice collection of fish but more wilder varieties including aquatic frogs etc.  With these exquisite systems the fish variety is critical, narrowed and sensitive.

My  hobbies are modding cars, computers and guns. Never cared much for landscaping..nature etc...

Stumbled upon this "Landscape" type of aquarium and my creative side really wants to see what I can come up with. Great Video thanks for some inspiration!

This isn't the case. They are good for the plants which in turn provides a better environment for the fish.

This is a fantastic aquascappe, but to say he invented the use of terrestrial moss, is outlandish. I've used it many times.

$5-6000 US is probably a conservative guess... I spent $1500 on a 16 Gallon set up w/o ne ADA stuff If its ADA, just add 0's. Here's a quick breakdown w/o including substrate, additives, plants or liquid nutrients... Those beautiful lights hanging over the tank; more than $1500 a pop. The tank itself; about the same as the lights, maybe a little less because its shallow. Pressurized c02 with Solenoid & diffuser around $3-400. Canister Filter ($300~as much as you want to spend)...

I have a Red Devil Cichilid he is approx 13/14 inches long. What would you suggest to place in his tank that he won't distroy? Would it be better to use Sand, sand with river rock? I'd like to see a video or if you have one already done that you could tell me to watch that you feel would work best for my boy. Thanks in advance!

I imagine that they are not, but if they were, they would be thousands. The tank, lighting and filtration (not seen) will be a couple of thousand. The amount of substrate used, is several hundred pounds alone on top of several hundred pounds of substrate starter powders and power sand. Ironically the cheapest part of the tank are the plants and fish. Less than a hundred pounds for both. That would be the base cost, then you've got James' fees on top.
