Memories.Transparent

I have growing Aquatic plants for two years,
This is the first time I worked on a Layout design. Hope everyone advises me   ops: ops: ops:

I found it is not easy to present a designed layout, My Aquascaping now is abit different from what I thought in half year ago..
The idea firstly came to my mind in a year ago was "Quiet Night Memories"...
I was trying to present a very silence remote country side at night...where likes the place I grow up...
moreover, wanted to present a emotion and feeling of a traditonal family...relax, quiet and feel free at night time....
all people there can do it was watch the stars and listen to bugs singins...
Besides, the Idea maybe nice for telling, but when I do it, I found I am not too good to make it real... :roll:

referrences brought me ideas :
pictures that inspire me...

Lets share my equipments


Tanks Size: 96cm x 40cm x 45cm(H)
Lighting System : T5HO 39W x 4 with DIY box + T8 30W x 2
CO2 System : 1kg set, 4 bubbles/sec
Filtration System : Atman CF800 940L/hr + Mr. Aqua in-water 1200L/hr + Mr.Aqua 240L/hr
Substrate System : ADA Aqua Soil Africana 27L + ADA Aqua Soil - Amazonia 9L
Dress up Accessories : Rocks 50 pounds (but only can see so little ops, woods, small stones for the "river road"












As I am abit disappointed about it doesn't look like what I thought, and the pictures are not taken so well, abit blur.....
but I was enjoy since I had did everything on Aquascaping and learn so much from seniors.... and now, I am still so excited about my first Aquascaping even it is not so succee.






thx for veiwing

Welcome to The Planted Tank Cliff!

Gorgeous tank there, very nice aquascaping, although you don't seem to be that content with it?

Love the glass fish. Do they need salt?

Very nice aquasape, Cliff!

I've always wanted some Indian Glass Fish, but the only ones they ever sell here are dyed with garish inks.

Welcome, Cliff. I very much enjoyed your photos and narration. I'm particularly fond of how you have blended different plant varieties together.

And not to detract from your tank, but that glass fish has me intrigued. I've never seen one that wasn't soiled with ink. I hardly give those fish a second glance when browsing the fish store. If they looked like that, I believe they would be a much more popular fish. I've noticed a slow change in trend in the US to a more natural tank. I hope this trend includes the "natural" version of this fish someday.
