Anyone that can suggest a clay that's safe for the fish but does not require a ceramic oven.
I want to handcraft some detailed rocks for a nano aquarium.
Haoko - 5 years ago
Found it myself in the end :D
For other curius on this subject i use Super Sculpey just make sure you harden it well so no liquid are left inside the clay that could harm fish.
(its not poisons just unwanted bacteria inside, from what i'm been told)

not fish is crappy. it just depends upon what you want to watch, a boring tank with just pretty plants or an active one with boring plants and fish who move around adding life/activity
Iono Sama
Iono Sama - 6 years ago

the fish are just extra, the focus of the work is not the fish... it's the plant, terrain and their combination... heck it could be without the fish for that matter

those are by no means 'crappy' fish btw, they are used commonly in large aquarium where larger shoals of fish moving in unison can create a much better effect than mere handful or even a dozen fish.

I love this. It's so relaxing, and weirdly fulfilling, to watch this come together. I've attempted a live, planted, freshwater tank before, and the upkeep was pretty serious--and that was only 65 gallons! It was my first attempt, and I had a few plants succeed while the rest failed miserably. The ones that did succeed, though (like the tiger lotus?), became massive and outgrew the dimensions of my setup. I hope to try something like this one day, but on a smaller scale... possibly a BioOrb. It's such a creatively beautiful, stress-relieving hobby/craft.

Hello my name is Richard. I live in the U.S.  I have years of experience in the aquarium hobby.  James Findley you are an incredible artist.  Better than me I happily admit. However I have one complaint of you and every aquarium artist I who's work I have seen. Including Takashi Amano.   If you are going to create art that is this breathtakingly beautiful then why do you stop short of the goal by leaving the aquarium hardware visible?   Go ALL the way and make the hardware invisible to the viewer or near invisible. Some hardware should be visible so it's progress can be monitored but chances are even in those circumstances it could be hidden. 
I could do it.  With total confidence I could walk into your shop and hide your aquarium hardware almost totally from view if not totally from view. And so could you good sir.  With aquarium mastery of your skill level you can, and should, hide the heaters, in-take and out-take hoses, co2 monitors and probes and so forth.  There are commercial in-line heaters on the market.  They can also be easily and cheaply made from acrylic. Beautiful work sir. Breath taking.   So why don't you hide that ugly hardware?  With some time and careful planning I could do it.

how did you guys manage not burn the plants with all that ammonia released by soil ? I've setup my tank for a month now plants are growing but I can see plant burn on leaves ..

wow, four halogen lights, don't be sucked in by the beauty of these set ups people. halogen lighting is very expensive to run and operate. the bulbs are expensive and need to be replaced often, they also use large amounts of electricity.with four lamps running your electric bill will go up at least 200 dollars a month.The final nail in the coffin with this lighting is that these bulbs run very hot, meaning the water gets over heated killing everything within. So now you have to buy a chiller to cool the water, these also are expensive to own and operate.If you would like to own a money pit get one of these set ups. shame on you TheGreenMachineLtd

Fantastic! I would love to see some information included on the filtration and other water quality features of the tank. Also, I want to see what it's like maintaining the plants in there--how often are you pruning and doing water changes? The long term stuff is important too! Thank you for the video

fish like neons actually love living in the plants also if you watched carefully and saw their were hiding spots in the wood you would know once the plants grow the neons and corys would be like a clown fish to an anemone. its just probable close to feeding time or they are just hanging in the current that's why you see them in the middle area.
mihali84 - 9 years ago
Nice setup, but not a good use of the full space provided. Also the fish have no place to shelter, it's almost as if they are perpetually swimming in a circle around the middle.

Different fish have different behaviors and sensitivity. Some fish are more shy than others. More schooling fish = less shyness in my experience. Tetras are great schooling fish as they are not very shy but still sensitive. Look into Celestial Pearl Danio (galaxy rasbora), they are beautiful fish, but very very shy. If you have more CPD's, they tend to be bit more outgoing. Good luck!

This is a freshwater tank, and you can do amazing aquascapes with salt water. However, living corals are often used more extensively in these setups than marine plants to form what is called a nano-reef. These tank setups are usually much more expensive than freshwater setups, require much more diligence to maintain optimum water conditions, and are more time consuming.

To hell with petstore sand; it's way too expensive and you get such a tiny bag. They're in it for profit. I've read you can use pool filter sand, from Lowe's or Ace Hardware (or any hot tub store, etc). You can get a 50 lb bag from $13-$30.

You know I am curious. How long does that substrate last? Do you have to replace it eventually and dismantle the setup? That would be really sad :( That is 1 incredible tank... If I ever get to be a billionaire I am going to make 1 of those... Err I mean find people to make me 1 of those... ONLY BIGGER ! :D
TheGreenMachineLtd - 9 years ago
Our maintenance team does one 3-4 hour basic maintenance session per week on this aquascape. We use a movable scaffold to make the job easier. Fish rarely die but if they do they may be eaten by shrimp etc or if you spot them you can remove them form the aquarium. A good Nature Aquarium should provide a very healthy environment for the fish within.

The plant roots should reach the bottom of the aquarium. Some of the additives are to help good bacteria grow... which is part of the biological filtration of the aquarium.

Hi John, glad you enjoyed the video. The powders are ADA Substrate Additives- read the aquascape journal by following the link in the description. You will have to find an acrylic tank supplier closer to you for it to be worth it cost wise. We use reverse osmosis water. We can ship most things to Australia.

A range of ADA Substrate Additives which help the plants.

As Sam said... you can use something to break up the flow of the water. You just need to be careful.
