by the Forest Shore
(Aquarium ADA 60 cm)

Date: 16 June 2013
Took me 4h30 hours (after wood arrangements and tests)



Filter Eheim Ecco 2234

Heater Jagger 75w

CO2 TMC 567g Pressurized, Solenoid Valve, Difusor Aquagrow

Lights Aquaeden - Ramirezzi Solstar 4x24w (just two are used: 6500k+8000k.)

Substrates Ada
Ada Penac-W
Ada Power Sand L
Ada Amazonia Aqua Soil
Ada Amazonia Aqua Soil Powder
ADA La Plata Sanda

Hardscape
ADA Hornwood
ADA Aqua Gravel

Tropica Plants:
Rotala sp. Green
Rotala wallichii
Ludwigia sp.
Hottonia Palustris
Ammania sp. Bonsai (1-2-grow)

Anubias Moss:
Leptodictium Riparium

Description:

This aquarium is the replacement for Beach Cliff, that were assembled on 30 June 2012.
I used wood instead of a mainly rocks... but not redmoor. I liked this hornwood and the wood i saw at the store was pretty neat.
It took me long hours to test the wood layout and have all wood assembled this way (7 pieces on the two wood parts that you can see at the picture).

Someone that lives with me wanted sand... so i used La Plata Sand on the front and on the "river". This sand was a left over of Beach Cliff. Between the sand and the Aquasoil i use ADA Aqua Gravel - very nice piece of small rocks.

Different from what is suppose to happen, i used the wood in the front of the aquarium and plant behind it. They are all stem plants.

In "front" i will only use Ammania Bonsai.

On the left side i uses Hottonia Palustris behind and Rotala Wallichi - trimming is expected to be hard.
On the right side / middle i used Rotala Green behind and Ludwidia sp.

Moss is Leptodictium Riparium, new from Anunias (all other plants are Tropica).

Lets see if the growing will make the layout i thought of.

Plants were barely in vertical position

Really like this tank so far. What were you doing to the glass halfway though the video? At 2:22?

Thanks guys.
Thats a translucent plastic glued with water. Gives a nice background when using a background light and some diagonal plastic behind.

The little rocks make all the difference for me. A great lesson in the huge impact of details.

Yes, details make a lot of difference... the rocks are lovely and with a great variety of shapes and colours.

I agree, this excellent looking scape deserves some nice clear lily pipes.

You're both right.
I have it on my 300l (Green&Grey) from Do!Aqua but i want to buy a ADA Lilly Pipe for this one. Probably some day :-)

Difusser is from Aquagrow and i want a Ada also (have a Do!Aqua on the other one).
