ADA 60P and 60F journal UPDATE 8/1/13


Sup planted tankers!
I decided to start my real actual journal of my nature aquariums. I moved to a new location and safely moved all of my aquarium stuff including fish & inverts (they were in the bucket!) So here it is! everything is finally set up and running!

For both of the aquariums, I reused the soil and put in pfertz root tabs to replenish the nutrients in the soil. Beneficial bacteria were still there as well as my filter; I was able to put my fish in after few days.

ADA 60P



Flora:
Glossostigma elatinoides
Utricularia graminifolia
Hydrocotyle triparitita (pennywort)
Staurogyne sp. 'Porto Velho'
Staurogene repens
Hygrophila polysperma
Heteranthera zosterifolia (stargrass)

Fauna:
Cardinal Tetra
Featherfin Rainbowfish
Rasbora Harlequin Tetra
Galaxy Rasbora
Otocinclus Catfish
Japonica Amano Shrimp





ADA 60F



Flora:
Hemianthus callitrichoides (baby tears ‘dwarf’)
Echinodorus tenellus (pygmy chain sword)
Utricularia graminifolia
Eriocaulon parkeri

Fauna:
Green Neon Tetra
Otocinclus Catfish
Cherry Red Shrimp





PS. I ordered 20 green neons at the lfs. The owner caught 2 of the fish that is not green neons! and I have no idea what they are; though they look pretty cool! Could someone help me out on this? Here is a pic




AND LASTLY!
I got my videos of 60f aquascape together. So if you're interested, click below to watch me scape 60f!

In case you didn't find out what kind of fish the mystery fish were, they are brilliant rasbora, Rasbora borapetensis.

ahhhhh thanks!!! i went ahead and read more about them. they seem to be pretty rare, never seen it before. since i only have 2 by accidents, they seem to be doing okay with the green neons.

Hey guys!

Here to give an update of my nature aquarium. I took them down because I had to move to different location. But I was able to take a picture and videos before I did so! For now I completed editing the videos for ada 60f. 60p is coming soon!



I made a lot of adjustment to this aquarium. Removed plants there and added new plants here. leave comments! Thanks for viewing!


PS! here is the youtube link to ada 60f:
