I may be blind, but I don't see any filters or any water-cleaning-equipment. Does this Aquarium clean it self through the plants or are there frequent water changes needed? Sorry if this is a stupid question, I don't really know anything about aquariums, other than you put fish, plants and water in there.

i've stumbled into the green machine's website and all these vids, and suddenly the way that I view aquariums has changed dramatically. I was curious if you guys ship any of the tanks like the F-90 to the US. I can't find anything of that low-and-long dimension in my area for any reasonable price...

like, I could probably pay $75 in shipping and it would still be considerably more affordable...

tomp rocks - 6 years ago
nope you dont need to put it outside. and its not good because its uncontrol light(you dont know how the weather's gonna be) and it promote algae growth.
the lights you gonna use is depend on your aquarium size and the plants you're using.
zyen ender
zyen ender - 6 years ago
thanks for the help.
btw what requirement for the led? or do we need to put it outside daily? to get sun.
tomp rocks
tomp rocks - 6 years ago
first 2 month do 50%water change twice a week, after that just do 30% once a week.
if in 2 week after planted your plants keep melting and has no new growth,that mean something is wrong with your set up.

Gunzee - 6 years ago
I have a silly question but the force exerted on the glass doesn't alarm anyone? I look at the corners of my small tank and try imagine the stress on them, something like this would freak me out. That tank is probably holding in the region of 100kg +. Water volume alone is 72 litres or 72 kg. I don't know but I wonder what the maximum psi these tanks can hold.
Maybe I'm just being over cautious, but I am so tempted to copy some of the work here. I have most of the material but need to bottom substrate. My tank really needs a overhaul, it's water and bio-bacteria is okay but it's got very little life. Nothing died I just stocked it with hardly anything, zebra catfish and neon tetra. The catfish are over 4 years old, very nice fish but they have a habit of vanishing (think they bury themselves).

with all those premium product he use its usually only take 2months for the tank to mature,
but he show us 17 months later,maybe because he did alot of change and other thing as you can see the first carpet plant he use was tenelus then he cange it to monte carlo,
so thats why i think he decided to upload this after 17months.

This just popped up as a recommended video. It's amazing, but I don't understand why they chose what look like ugly feeder guppies for fish. I guess if they jump out, it's no loss, but there are a million different livebearers that look more attractive than those. Strange.

The layout was so bad though, no clear area to rest the eye, no focal points, everything was a bit too evenly. You need to be a little bolder at one point and then a little less at two other points close to the main focal stone or shape. It looked way too tight between the stones, so it felt like the plants were being throttled.

Shallow tanks are nice, but what they lack in daily maintenance, they make up for in set up time. The only thing I don't like about them is the plant life above the water line. What I think they fail to mention here, is that unless you want your living space to smell like a pond, any plant life above water should be replanted under the water.

abhishek unni - 7 years ago
TheGreenMachineLtd thank you very much. I was really waging my option on using a filter due to it ruining the scenery I intend to create, which by the way is a temple ruins. Thank you very much.

Need you help and suggestion..!!
I did the similar setup and purchased all the product and plant from you authorized dealer "The Aquarium Store"(Bangalore, India).
After the setup his done when i added water to tank it turned to black..!! even after 12 hrs it still looks dirty.
Can i add fish to aquarium or how many days i need to wait?

what are the tiny bubbles protruding up from the moss?
Matthew McLaren
Matthew McLaren - 7 years ago
Update: After a little bit of googling, turns out I am right. The bubbles are from the plants photosynthesizing and processing CO2 into oxygen.

Someone online said: "when plants photosynthesis, they give off oxygen which is dissolved in the water . But once the water becomes saturated with oxygen the oxygen produced by the plants will form small air bubbles. This is pearling. It is natural and tells you that your plants are growing well."
Matthew McLaren
Matthew McLaren - 7 years ago
I'm not entirely sure. He never installed a pump, nor did he leave a spot to install a pump later on. Plus the bubbles look very natural. It's usually very obvious when bubbles are fake. So the bubbles are probably from the plants exchanging co2 in the water.

But I honestly can't say for sure because I am new to this stuff.
Voodoo8648 - 7 years ago
Matthew McLaren you sure there's not a pump under the rocks or soil or something? That's a lot of oxygen in a short period of time for such small plants

I did not like the design for the type of aquarium !, because it hides a very large area of the aquarium !, not like enjoying it well !, which is not a viable for a permanent
aquarium! Aquarius the industrialized product much less chemical, the more natural the better!, Not to mention costs that get much higher with maintenance, in fact you are led to a very large consumerism !, where much is not necessary !, which makes the Aquarism

NOTE: possibly dumb

do you have to clean this tank ever again ? or do the plants and the soil you used and the coal which acts as a filter keep it clean as long as you have the tank ? because I'd love to have a turtle or a snake of some kind in a tank like that ! with the fish a semi aquatic tank like that is breathtaking!!]
