Planted Aquarium Flow 🌿 Why Water Circulation Matters🌿 Foundations in aquascaping 🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿 In this series, The Foundations in Aquascaping, we go over the basics of planted tank keeping and aquascaping for beginners. We often think about the water movement in our aquariums more in terms of filtration. Our filters cycle the water through performing mechanical and biological filtration. But we rarely consider flow and more specifically why circulation matters. Flow allows for many aspects of maintaining a balanced planted tank or aquarium in general. It provides even distribution of fertilizers, gas exchange. It lessens dead zones which lead to detritus build up and algae. It also stimulates our fish physically leading to overall better health. This video gives a foundation outline on why circulation matters and teaches us to consider flow as an essential part of aquascaping and aquarium fish keeping. 🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿 Please hit subscribe for more videos and updates from N.O.A.H.

hey. thanks for your comments and for subscribing. I do try to offer as many options as possible because there are so many variables in this hobby. On facebook the low tech planted tank group and the high tech planted tank groups are both great forums for discussion.
But feel free to ask away here too and I'll be glad to help if i can.
For sure. Hit me up anytime if you have any questions. Everything takes tweaking here and there.
It will do alright...if sticking with the 2 HOB i would try and position them diagonal from each other to try and get the gyro circulation going....or supplement your flow with a powerhead
Great video non the leaa
Yep...it is always good to slowly ramp up anu parameter change
For the co2...make sure it is a consistent increase so as to avoid uneven distribution
What do you think?
You can start right away...the healthier the plants are from the start the faster the tank will cycle due to their increased plant mass
Thanks. Hope it helped.
Thank you so much! I've got more videos coming soon so i hope you subscribed for updates.
Thanks. Hope you subscribed. A lot more to come!
The substrate in this tank is EcoComplete with a bit of pool filter sand for decoration.
I'm not sure which plants you can't identify so here is the full list as it stood at the time of the video (i have made a few changes since then)
Hydrocotyle tripartia sp japan
Heminanthus Glomeratus (pearlweed)
Anubias petite nana
Thanks. I'll certainly check out your channel.
