My plan i will use Eleocharis acicularis planted emerge first. Than after the plant grow i will fill the ponds with water. I like to make just like carpet effect using this plant just like savana (hopefully success ).
I will use 150 watt MH lamp only for night view. For light is will use sun as my main source of light. I will add canopy and sun screen to reduce the sun light.
For CO2 i will inject it from the pump to CO2 reactor that i will made using PVC pipe.

Any suggestion are welcome
I really need a lots

For fish collection i will use Cardinal tetra (maybe 200 to 300) or Harlequin or rummy nose tetra. I really want to have altum angel. so hard to find here.
For Algae Eating squad hopefully i will use Ottocinclus affinis hard to get in Indonesia and very expensive here and a lot of Red Cherry Shrimp

Wow! This looks amazing. Is this a commercial project or at your home? How did you learn to do this? Are ponds of this type common in Indo?

Pretty incredible project. This is huge. It's quite a waterfall - maybe 6 feet or more?! I can't imagine how much CO2 you will go through! I"ll be looking forward to your progress.

I don't think I'd get anything done at your house.. I'd be watching this pond all day long!

Just keeping on keeping on....

Oh wow! There are some pretty great ponds in Indonesia! I would get a bunch of rummy nose tetras! They are one of my favorite fish and they school the best out of any tetra that I have ever seen
