PostSubject: The Living Leaf, 250Lt's New Setup *Aquascaping*    Fri Sep 10, 2010 2:24 am

Hello everyone

This is the first time i post here, and i wanted to show my work beyond the portuguese Aquaforuns. So i throw my chance here and i want to know what do you think about my Aquarium. I study and search a lot of info. about aquascaping and i'll do my best efford to apply this to this project, so i can make a real aquascape Aquarium.
I've done some Aquarium before and i've learn a lot with them. I think this will be my start to Professional Aquascaping.

Here it goes the Aquarium Setup:

Illumination - 4x39w (10.000K)
Filter - Eheim 4412 (440lts/h)+ Eheim 2010 internal Filter (500Lts/h)
Heater - jager 150w(for now)
substrate - humus + humus plus + akadama + JBL Manano
Co2 pressurized

Plants:

Alternanthera Reinickii Purple
Blixya
Pogostemon Helferi
Anubia var. Nana
Eleocharis Parvula
Cryptocorine brown
Cryptocorine parva
Rotala Rotundifolia
Hydrocotile verticillata e Leucocephala
Microsorium pteropus
Monosolum tenerum
Vesicularia Dubyana
Riccia fluitans
Staurogyne Sp.
Fissidens

Fish:

2 Danios Lyra
4 néons
Couple Ramirazi
Couple Guppy
6 Guppy(Filhotes)
2 Gobios
3 Ottocinclus
1 SAE
4 Corydoras Pigmeu
7 Corydoras habrosus
2 Crystal shrimp
1 Snail(I don't know what is the specimen yet)

Tests
Ph - entre 6.5 e 7
Po4 - 1.0mg/l
No3 - 10ppm
Nh4 - 0ppm
Gh - 8ºdGh
Kh - 3ºdKh

2nd September 2010(Aqua birth date)



I'll try to upgrade the topic once a month so you can see the diference and see if i'm going well with the Scaping.
I'm sorry about the fotograph quality, i didn't upgrade yet my photograph machine. I'ts a R507 Hp Photosmart 4.1MP. Surprised


Best regards
Vitor Sousa

I'll wait your future pictures...

For what I can say, because I'm more oriented on reef-scape Smile I don't like so much the two different color, brown and white, I would prefer to use different plants to do the same effect

hello dani,

i know this two colours don't match very well, that happens because this Aqua isn't complete yet. i'm going to put more plants, so i can have the brown color transformed in green and red. Smile .

Thanks for the opinion Smile

I suggest you to take pictures in the same place with the same angle, hopefully every single day, so you can show all the improvements...

Hello dani

Every single day? hum. . . i think that way you can't se very well the improvements. A foto every two weeks could be better for you to see Smile. So i can give time and space for the plants to grow and show the difference Smile

If you take a picture every single day, after one years, you can mount in a film... try it!

one photo week Smile great!

But you have to try to have the same contrast on the pictures, otherwise it's quite difficult to compare their color.

yes, it's my first time that i take fotos with a semi-professional camera. It's a Canon Eos 350D Reflex.
So i think it's normal to have this kind of fotos, not very good.
I'll try to make them better. i promisse Smile Smile

Hello.

Well i brouht to you some new news.
I've had a surprise when a algae begin growing up and became a plage. Now i'm removing it manualy and the Lda25 and some snails are helping me.
My aqua is Already 2months and 2 weeks old, and i've done some layout changes. I've changed the sand for substrate so i can plant Eleocharis Accicularis and put it al green. I will eliminate Pogostemon Stellata and put Rotala Green. I think it will be better.
I've been reading documents and magazines talking about fotography, and i think i'm improving.
Here's some pictures from the algae Smile, and from the Aqua.
Hope you like

See you soon ;-)
