N4505 - "Bonsarium" 120L

Hello everyone..

This is my latest attempt..
The tree is ulmus parvifolia and it's in there with its own pot.
This photo was taken 3 months after setup.
I hope you like it..

Holy cow, that is awesome! Subscribed!

Could you tell us some more about the setup- light, filtration, other plants, etc?

Just curious, how long have you been in the hobby? And what camera are you using?

Nice! I was debating doing this also. I was going to try it with black Mangroves. Are you concerned with your tree being wet all the time?

It's in its own pot and plus most trees can't be grown indoors simply because the humidity is too low. Like 80% of bonsais are actually outdoor plants and can only stay indoors for a day or two before they start withering.

Thank you all guys for your comments..

Here is some more info:

Tank: 100x30x40cm (h)
Lighting: Arcadia Overtank 2x39w T5
Mist: Venta Ultrasonic
Plants: Ulmus Parvifolia, two kinds of native moss (Greece)
Fauna: No

I also use a piece of plexiglass with 2 ventilation holes to cover the tank
and a pc case fan for air circulation working at 4.5V/12V.
The mist and fan are on for a couple of minutes every half an hour (not simultaneously).

You can see photos from the first day of setup here

From 2009, but my only experience is my first aquarium, which I kept for about 7 months, and a failed dry-start of a nano tank before I had to leave home for a year (army obligation)..
And I'm a happy Canon 600D owner for 3 months now..

No fauna for me right now, I want to keep it as low-maintenance as I can.

As Jeffww said, it's in its own pot and I water it as much as it needs while it has enough humidity.
But I believe there is a danger of possible fungus if there isn't enough air circulation.

That's why I started this kind of setup. I got no balcony..

Thank you my friend.. The best part is how low-maintenance it really is

This is beautiful! I think the water inbetween the land is really nice.

Is there any plexiglass inbetween the water and the land? (How did you create such a wonderful shore and it look so natural?)

That is an awesome tank! A few shrimp could go nicely in the water area.

I like the way the DW on the left looks like a trunk with roots growing over the rock.
