The narrator keeps talking in third person about this "James" character who he seemingly idolizes....I gotta say....very, very creepy. This James dude never has a facial expression....what's the point??
Aquarium aquascaping is akin to creating fine art, in that, it should result in a feeling of pleasure, and accomplishment, which is (should be) reflected in the face of the he even care if he is planting a tank or laying bricks on a new home??? Something about these videos does not sit well with me at all!

I really can not even imagine how that much photosynthesis is happening and there is not an algae problem. I mean I'm really fed up with videos just giving aquascaping ideas and not really telling what you should do to keep it going. Nice aquascape, yea big deal, I prefer 100 times over a shit looking aquascape with a no-algae solution to a nice looking aquascape. Obviously, it's not the bacteria or the soil so please, understand that people now can make nice aquascapes but if it gets algae infested whats the point??? It's just a waste of money on nice looking plants, technical equipment etc. I'm really pissed and frustrated. Obviously my comment is not specifically for this video but come on man, we all know you make nice aquascapes, how about some tip on how not to have algae problems.

Do you lose a lot of water to evaporation when you don't have a top on it? If so, how do you top it up? I would have thought constantly adding tap water would increase the hardness of the water over time.

AcolyteOF Fire
AcolyteOF Fire - 4 years ago
maybe every 3 weeks or so , the plants add oxygen to the water and eat all the co2 whilst also the fece's of the fish feed the plants, the plants also filter the water a bit, its almost completely self sustaining, if they had shrimp in there it would be even more self sustaining needing rare water changes and filter changes.

But if you scale the tank to create a sense of scale, always bear in mind, you'll need beneficial bacteria encouraging power sand to encourage the growth of beneficial bacteria. These beneficial bacteria aid in maintenance and plant growth, so always make sure you have access to beneficial bacteria

thee is simply not enough scale. if they added another rock the sense of scale would increase the sense of scale to critical levels of scale and increase the senses.

With a heavy planted tank and just small fishes (the fish poops will just break away and become compost for plant's roots), just weekly 20% water change will do. No need gravel vacuum.

Go to the website link in the description, there is a price listing in the setup specification links. Setting up the tank usually take a few hours only. Take leave from work and go visit your local aquarium shop and talk to the salesperson, show them this video and tell them u want tank something like this. Dont let them fool you into buying all substrates.. thats why do read and research online more abt aquarium hobby. You need a bit of commitment in this hobby or else your tank will be in not nice condition..

Victor Fries

Guys guys, I worked for Amano and ADA myself smart asses. OOPS!!!
Professional means doing it for a living, your main income, your bread. They do aquascaping aside their normal job. (Beside Amano is a professional photographer.) And people who join competition are not pro either they are hobbyists. It stands lose from how good you are at it. And yes, Tom Barr, Amano, and who not, they are selling you products (And some of them a pack of lies on top) . xD Like it or not.

Ironiic zero - 5 years ago
+Victor Fries i guess Takashi Amano ( the guy who revamped the aquascaping hobby) isnt a professional then. 

People like Tom Barr, George Farmer, Mark Evans etc are just random salesmen that only want money. Same for the people who regularly enter competitions like IAPLC, EAPLC and AGA. i guess they are just salesman and have no profession in aquascaping.

I am using tetra soil and a black sand cap

what is the best fert for a 1 ft cube nano?
Robert - 6 years ago
Honestly you don't need any additives. Using a substrate meant for plants and good ferts is plenty for most plants.

While they do make amazing aquascapes you have to remember TGM is still a shop, so they're going to recommend as many products as possible.

This is the type of aquarium I've always wanted since I was a kid but was limited to bargain store items: gravel, plastic plants, bad filters. I would try again using these techniques but sadly my tiny studio apt isn't really equipped to have something like this, even a nano. But I really enjoy watching videos of them and particularly like TGM's because they're not as garish as others.

I´m having a really hard time with Green water in my planted tank, I have tried everything but everything failed. someone was any suggestion?
Lucu Lencia
Lucu Lencia - 6 years ago
Cyanobacteria grows as a slimy mat on surfaces.
The free floating algae that causes green water in aquariums is actually a type of single celled colony forming green algae.
Antibacterials will do nothing vs this type of algae, and will kill your beneficial bacteria so don't use them.
Just cover the tank for 3 days so that no light can get in (make sure its still ventilated for the fish though).
Do more water changes - green water is typically a result of high nitrates and too much / too strong light.
Don't panic - it won't hurt your fish, most ponds are green and the fish live very comfortably in them.

Is your tank overstocked? You might need to think about upgrading to a larger one or giving away some fish. You can also try adding more plants - floating plants are good because they'll grow fast, suck up nitrates, and won't have their light blocked out by the algae. How much light do you give your plants? Try setting a lower photo-period (6 - 8 hours) - you should never have the lights on longer than 12 hours. The tank should not get direct sunlight, if it does move the tank or block the sunlight from reaching the tank.

Yev Zakharov
Yev Zakharov - 6 years ago
There is a far better (more reliable) way to kill cyanobacteria. It's a powder that's sold at pet stores. I used it in my fully planted tank with fish. The bacteria died instantly and no harm was done to anything else!
Yev Zakharov
Yev Zakharov - 6 years ago
I'm really not sure. It could be Cyanobacteria. It sort of looks like algae when it's on objects but also makes the water green. It's not actually algae tho. It's treated with small doses of certain chemicals you can get from the pet store.

jumpers? get the right fish
wingedstring - 5 years ago
it happens, that depends on the type of fish, it´s nature, the water level, the stress and movement around the tank and many other things. Some custom glass piece looks very nice and natural in any tank as a lid :)!
MaiCohWolf - 5 years ago
+wingedstring you've been a very lucky fishkeeper then. i've kept fish for many years and i've had open tanks too, but after all the jumpers i've had i decided to get some kind of lid so my fish wouldn't keep dying. the one i have now is frosted and has a hole in the center so you can see the water moving, but it covers enough surface area that the fish can't really jump out. also the lid is sloped inward so that if the fish did jump out, they'd land on the lid and slide right back into the water. it's pretty, with minimal risk factor.
wingedstring - 5 years ago
+MaiCohWolf I understand you! But for some of us, open tanks are beautiful(Takashi Amano style for some).
And this fishes don´t really jumo that much, fishes like mollies, hatchetfish, orientals, arowanas ect. tend to jump a lot. 5 of my 7 tanks, have no lit, and I have planted, shrimps, guppies, corys, cichlids, betta ect. amd over years, I 've had no jumpers.

the result is really neat, and seeing it step by step was rather enjoyable too. but honestly, you lost me half the way, with silly, pricy yet pointless spatula, istead of ones hand or a kitchen spatula to moveand shape dry gravel, like there way no other way to do it (that may seem like a lame detail, but it really bugs me as much as a black pebble on a white beach "scape" would some others), and the other half with the comment at the end, that just ridiculously over-stilized setting up an estetically pleasing fish tank.
still a nice video, but that details let me with a stale after-taste.

Another great video but as usual, The Green Machine does not show how/what Co2 Mr Findley uses. Can't see it in most of his setups. Is it hidden or turned off during filming? The plants are pearling but I don't see Co2 bubbles.

I watched 'The Reciprocity' and the narrator mentioned Mr Findley always uses TGM/his own style of Co2 injection. Is this some kind of a trade secret? Kinda disappoints me if they purposely didn't want to show it. I hope someone from TGM can clarify. And maybe in future videos have maybe a small amount of time to show/explain how they specifically setup their Co2 cables or brand etc. Thank you.

+thefullstop23 Hi, thanks fore the feedback. During some of our videos we remove CO2 equipment from the aquarium for improved aesthetics. On James' larger aquariums such as Nature's Chaos, Altitude & Reciprocity, CO2 is added inline with the filter (outside of the aquarium). Most of his setups use a TGM Complete CO2 Kit: We do intend to include more on CO2 in future videos.Thanks again,TGM

Hi, this plant is Monosolenium tenerum which is a very dark blue/green in colour but the tank is actually algae free.

This one worked really well. Still wish you would show at least a few seconds of how it actually looks when running - with filters and co2 diffuser, tubing and drop checker etc added. Making all that look good can also be an art. Great job on this one though. Looks fab! :)

How does the tank get filtered?

they usually remove the filtration for videos/pictures to make it look cleaner.
