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


New Aquascape :-) the 7th month

After approximately 7 month I decided to change the aquascape a little bit. Yes, Bacopa left the family together with the Alternanthera reineckii "roseafolia" . I added lots of rocks that I collected few weeks ago in Denmark.
Cardinal Tetras are very happy with this change I can tell. They shoal over the dark, newly added, gravel at all times. With the light gravel they would rather hide amongst the plants, but now they feel more secure I would say. It is lovely seeing them shoal like that.
I will plant some Java Moss soon beside the stone line, to get a more natural feel. At the moment I will try to keep my remaining plants happy so they can keep the water quality high.
