180 L Planted Aquarium Journal

Through building and maintaining beautiful nature aquaria people re-learn the intricate connections between forms of life, plants, fish, microorganism and humans. Riches and beauty come from harmony, from balance. Aquaria are great teachers of this truth. Takashi Amano


The 4th day

I decided to plant more. I bought 1 Hygrophila corymbosa " Siamensis 53B ", 1 Alternanthera reineckii " roseafolia " & 1 Cardamine lyrata. I inserted some more substrate iron fertilisers & one small peace of driftwood. With all those fast growing plants the algae have no chance to take over the tank. But the lights has to be strong and CO2 is a MUST !!! The light timer is set up for 12 hours a day. The water looks clearer but still a bit cloudy.
