Is it possible to list the equipment and plants in your video descriptions? Even the fish - there are a few in this tank I don't recognize and I would love to purchase some for my next tank :)

+KrispyAquascape haha, I learned that trick from Amano. Though his tanks are usually a lot thicker. I just risk it and always have. Just make sure that the rocks are flat and solid and hope that no sharp points are digging into the glass. You can always add a sheet of corrugated plastic to the bottom of the tank to help out, or use lava rubble, or egg crate. Thanks for watching man, and glad to see you're still around. Peace

MasterBuster
MasterBuster - 5 years ago
hello

great video and great aquarium!
i saw here in the comments that you use 2bps c02
but i would like to ask what is the lighting ratio of watt to liter, and what kind of lamps are you using.
in addition, did you use any glue when putting the mosses? i saw you brushed them onto the rocks, is it enough for them to hold tight on the rock and not coming off?

by the way, i find the off focus frames a bit too long in this video, maybe i'm the only one, just an advice.
ADU Aquascaping
ADU Aquascaping - 5 years ago
+MasterBuster I am using AquaticLife Halo LEDs. I run my lighting based off of PAR readings, and not so much watts per liter. Right now I am running two fixtures at 75% power, which would be around 65 watts per light over a 151 liter tank, but the lights are at over 24" above the substrate of the aquarium. PAR is over 100 even at 24"+ above the substrate.


I just glue them on using cyanoacrylate super glue gel. It seems to do the job quite well. And I am dosing fertilizers minimally to the water column, and not using any soil. Just the sand.


Just slow down and enjoy the effect. A few people said they loved those scenes including my nephew. :) Thanks for watching.

Eric Afyouni - 5 years ago
I really like the contrast between lit and unlit regions of the rockwork. I'm glad that the branches/roots were removed on the right side. Looked a bit cluttered before, now it looks balanced. How do you like the Halo lights? They seem to light the tank well in your video. I just wonder if there is too much shimmer.
ADU Aquascaping
ADU Aquascaping - 5 years ago
+Eric Afyouni Yeah it is way better now. Replaced it with aged brown wood, which is more subtle. Eventually it is supposed to look like the lava fields of Iceland, so it will get real round, soft and green. The canyon will become more narrow, which should add more depth, and the Monte Carlo will cover more of the sand. I also added some more rock to the back left corner of the canyon and it added more depth. It isn't supposed to be a scaled out massive mountain scene, rather 100-200ft tall hills and canyons for example. I found hiding the horizon line in this scape helped add more depth and mystery. It is also supposed to look like a big rock that has been broken into three. I am calling it, "The one who became three". Thanks for watching.




The lights have really nice color rendering. I mean really nice. Better than any LED I have used or seen out on the market...

What substrate are you using and what lights are you using??
ADU Aquascaping
ADU Aquascaping - 5 years ago
+Larsen T. I am using two AquaticLife Halo LEDs, which have superb color rendering and are less expensive than all other high-end models that I have seen... May not be as attractive, but the color rendering is really nice.


I have no nutrient based substrate in this current scape. I am only using a mixture of ADA La Plata and Colorado sands. And minimally dosing the water column with DIY ferts and Aquavitro- I only use this line because I won a bunch of bottles. After they run out I am going back to all DIY fertilizer solutions, which I only minimally dose to the water column.


I usually use Marfied Controsoil Aquasoil, but as of now they recently pulled their Aquasoil from Amazon and their website is down. I don't know what is going on, but I hope they start selling in the US again.

AQUADESIGN by aquamaniac
AQUADESIGN by aquamaniac - 5 years ago
Scape is maturing nicely Dave.
What are you doing with this one with light,co2 and nutrients?
You're using alot of mosses but i can't see that requiring a super high-tech setup.
Maintenance keeping those mosses clean a looking good may give something to keep you busy going forward.
ADU Aquascaping
ADU Aquascaping - 5 years ago
+AQUADESIGN by aquamaniac Thanks man, we will just have to wait and see how it turns out. Already the Monte Carlo is staring ti creep into the sand, so it will cover more of the sand as time goes on and of course the Riccardia will get really big and create big green domes everywhere. It is eventually supposed to look like the lava fields of Iceland. And it is also supposed to look like a solid rock that was broken into three pieces. I am calling it, "The One Who Became Three".


I added a few more rocks to the back left side of the canyon, which added more depth. With this layout I don't think it is necessarily a good thing to be able to see the horizon line. Once I cover up the horizon line it adds more depth. Crazy because some tanks have a lot of depth with the horizon line incorporated into the layout. Either way, this scape isn't supposed to be scaled way way out like some massive mountain scene. It is more like a 100-200 foot tall hill or cliff face for example.


Yeah the maintenance with the mosses and all of the rocks is crazy. Just have to wave my hand everywhere and catch everything that I can into the net.


I am running it just the same as the last tank- high light, 2bps CO2, and minimally dosing the water column.


Thanks for watching man.

Awesome tank! Those islands you built up look incredible, how do you make them so high and steep without having them slide? And still have tons of plants grow in between them.

+MarineLifeDrew I just take my time, but lava rock sticks together a lot easier than other rocks, so it helps to use lava when doing something like this.

You should add some moss tress
That would make it look ultra real

+Ace Purity Thanks, for now I may hold off on adding anything else. It is supposed to turn out to look like the Lava fields of Iceland. We will just have to wait and see how it turns out. It will transform and I will make adjustments here and there. Thanks for the input and for watching.
