when making such big tanks especially with soil/sand covered with plant roots do you need to clean the soil/sand with a special pump? or do you ignore all the fish poop landing on the floor bed?

Ahh i see, but when u use that tool to clean to soil does it not break or damage the plant roots? I remember having a pump with a long plastic tube which u stick into the soil to suck everything up. Not sure if u are referring to this tool.

+Salkio We add shrimp who eat some of the waste and when cleaning we will use a manual syphon to remove debris from some areas within the tank (usually once a week).

These are some good layouts and I've enjoyed watching several videos now, but what I've noticed is that the fish population in these tanks is quite low. Especially for this massive tank there are so few fish, and none of them are larger species.
Alex Paulsen
Alex Paulsen - 6 years ago
+TheGreenMachineLtd Every time my fish population gets low, I have a spike in algae growth. Oxygen supply I guess. I've actually found it easier to manage a well-stocked tank.

That said, my latest aquarium is sand and plants, with only bog wood as hardscape. I think it will be easier to manage any algae I get.
TheGreenMachineLtd
TheGreenMachineLtd - 7 years ago
+apophis777 Creatively, larger species make the layout look smaller which is less desirable. Also it's better for the fishes welfare to have as much space as possible... this goes for fish size as well as total quantity in a given space.

is that normal tap water added during the planting stage ? Also are those cardboard supporter ? or plastic ( and when do u remove it ) would that harm your fishes or shrimps. Thanks for reply in advance. Greenmachine always surprise me :D 
Luke Nicholson
Luke Nicholson - 7 years ago
Probably normal tap water with water additives like water ager and they're plastic supports so the substrate doesn't role down or move and you leave them in there and cover them with dirt and plants. Cardboard if you've never seen it wet breaks apart and will destroy your aquarium...

At first glance- I envisioned this as to be a winding road, through a mountain range- with strange birds and woodland creatures scurrying about. So peaceful, clean, & quiet. I would've preferred a drilled tank- without the water/filter/heater aparatus visible at all, and possibly multi-spectrum programmable LEDs; more enviro-friendly and longer life-hours than high wattage & HOT Halides, much cheaper to run!

This is a beautiful aquascape! I love what he did with building up the opposing corners. I do feel like the road curves the wrong way... Roads don't have bends unless there is something to go around. It could have bended around the rock formations, but instead it bent the opposite way into the rock formations.

The only thing which is letting this tank down are the terrible heater and canister filter pipes at both ends, this tank is crying out for a sump, somewhere you can hide all the equipment and therefore only need a pipe at each end drilled through the bottom of the tank. Its such a beautiful tank however I feel all the equipment gets close to ruining it.

It depends on the size and setting. Glass is usually preferable because it doesn't warp light unevenly such as in the case of acrylic - this can distract from viewing the aquascape. Acrylic has the advantage of higher clarity and therefore better colour representation. Acrylic won't shatter like glass. Our largest display tanks are acrylic whereas all our smaller aquariums are glass. We advise that glass is the best choice for most circumstances.

Lol wow, I started off keeping freshwater tanks and have always wanted to do a saltwater tank. Just now I started working on one because of its beauty, but after watching this video and seeing that he's taking his time to seperate the roots and place them one by one in very detailed spots, is brilliant. I usually just place the whole plant in the gravel. Then when the water and fishes were added seeing how they swam was mind blowing.I regret not giving freshwater a serious try, Thankyou :)

The best way is to visit our shop and let one of our team talk you through it. That way you can learn the basics and decide what is best for your budget. It is possible to have a basic setup but compromises in light and other things limit choice of plants etc. It takes someone with hands on experience to guide you correctly. Most shops out there won't be able to offer sufficiently good advice in this case.

That's the good thing with planted aquarium, naturally the plant act as a natural filter so all you need to do is siphon the water and add new water into the tank to replenish the mineral and of course clean the algae off the glass if there is any.

This is oxygen produced by the plants during photosynthesis. This oxygen is what the fish breathe.

Yes that is correct. We add CO2 to the water for the plants and they in turn generate the oxygen for the fish. You cannot use airstones in a planted tank because they will kill the plants.

Nice layout. Hard work. What I dont understand is why in an layout like this that has so much attention to detail that I have to look at intake/output tubes on the ends. Its a common thing. Why can't these tanks be drilled and and have all the plumbing go through the bottom and have those tubes hidden within the layout? Your opinion?

Add up the surface area of your aquarium stand, add the weight of water (8.3 lbs per gallon) plus and rock, plants or other items you're going to use and then divide by the surface area. That will give you a rough figure of the pressure per square foot.

Where can I see a current view of this tank? Also, you list about what? 550 fish? but when I'm watching the video, I see maybe 40? I know they're small, but this seems a bit um...odd.

Great video, could you please list the substrate materials and order of use? I noticed he added additives first and so on. Thank you for your help and inspiration. Please forgive my poor English.

hello,for as long as i can remember i want a nice aquarium but my landlord,has put a stop to that because i could not tell what the exact pressure of the whole set-up would be and i could not give him the exact weight of it aswell so he said: aint gonna happen :(

Mr. Findley, I just want to say, that your creative genius is inspiring, and it has inspired me to create a 2 gallon planted Betta bowl, this is just the beginning, so please check it out on my channel, it would mean the world to me. Once again, as always, excellent job on the 'Reciprocity"'

James used a bowl that the water pipe went into and then filled it very carefully, to prevent it disturbing the scape.

You can do a small aquascape on a budget with our Exceptional Value Range - have a look at our website for more details. One of the brilliant things about Nature Aquariums is that even small aquascapes can be breathtaking.

Please explain how he filled up the first water, just before beginning to plant, without stirring up the scape? I can see no plastic foil or anything in the tank. Did he use plastic foil which was removed for the sake of filming?

I can't decide if it is a work of art, a little piece of nature, or both. Regardless, this tank is beautiful.

Beautiful work...though now I will feel inadequate if I get anything less than 200 gallons. I wish you had subtitles, since the Transcribe Audio's output is unintentionally hilarious: 1:11 - stolen weapons commandos to malice hijack our future posture two-pound and some battalion commander foley and national attention for the world. 3:32 - all specialist retailers should have mexico in displays

Oh! :) Yes, this is a mammoth Nature Aquarium - James Findley originally had this tank made for his home...but the plans soon grew into a shop so it went into The Green Machine's showroom instead! It is possible to achieve results that are stunning in smaller aquariums too though - we've got some videos of James Findley doing some smaller Nature Aquariums coming out next.
