I used ELOS from the previous layout below the Aquasoil Powder. I think i used some ~20L of ELOS at that time and some more 6L of Powder this time.

Very nice! Scape looks great and the stone placement is wonderful.

Have you considered getting an inline heater?

Thanks.
Yes, next winter. Summer is arriving in Portugal and heater will be out of the aquarium on the next weeks/days.

Hi there,

Another two videos: one from an overall status of the aquarium from almost 2 weeks ago (after trimming); and another one with the new 92 Tetra Embers :-)

First Video:
Overall of the tank and some otto fish and amano&crs shrimp. This is footage taken on the day of the HM trim (14.04.2013).


Second Video:
If you love Tetra Embers, here is a video of them entering the aquarium (20.04.2013) and from the next day, when the school was already very beatufil.
Their colors are not as nice as they should be in the future, but nevertheless a very good looking fish.
I think music is very nice for the images


Enjoy!!!

What a beautiful tank. It's so calming. I was also checking out your interior of your house..the tank sits beautifully in the room - like a piece of artwork hung in the wall.

Love the macro shots ..makes it feel like I'm right there!

In the aquarium set-up video I saw that you didn't really plant a lot of HM, but how did it grow so much? Probably stems acting as horizontal runners?

No, just trimming. I just replanted a few plants in the first trim.
For each trim the plant will be more "bushy" because it starts new plants form the local of the cutting. HM doesn't make horizontal shooters.

Trimming 1,20m wide aquarium of sp. mini hurts your back

The "movie"...
