ALL MY AQUARIUMS TOUR 2019 (most of them empty 🙄) +10K Winner and NEW 25K Giveaway Announcements!

hey what’s up guys and welcome here,
season 2 on my youtube channel. Great to be back and great to see your smiling
faces and it’s super awesome to see Logan. His face right behind the camera
so everyone say “hi” to Logan in the comment section below. Guys I’m super
excited for this video because we’re not only going to recap on some of the stats
of the season one, but also I gonna give you a preview of what’s coming up
in season two. Entire studio tour of my space with all the tanks and projects
coming up here in the future. We’re going announce the winner for the 10k
announcement! I know I know it’s been a long while ago and at the same time we
announced a new giveaway because we are at 25,000 subscribers! Thank you very
much. Guys, so it was quite of a journey the past year. First I would like to say
thank you to George Farmer for offering me the stage to do the shout out and for
the opportunity that leads to find Logan, who is here first time in Germany and is
having me to film this video. You know the approach was in the first year
with YouTube channel I kinda filmed on the fly basically everything I was doing:
client projects, maintenance sessions on my own tanks. Not really created content
on purpose for you specifically. So I just tried to kinda document whatever I was
doing. So now for the season 2 it’s gonna change. I’m gonna film more of the
stuff that you’re interested – you know. Like product reviews, I don’t know low
budget co2 vs no co2 stuff and you know, all those things that you want
to know best light, best filter etc. etc. and yeah the frequency is gonna change. So I used to have one to two videos per week in the past. That’s mainly because I
was doing YouTube on the side and I was just documenting whatever was happening. Now I freed-up more time for YouTube. I want to take it more seriously. And I gonna
ramp up the upload frequency to 3 to 4 times a week. That’s going to be
quite of a challenge. You know like really dealing with it every day:
One day filming, next day uploading then again filming, again uploading and so on. So I hope you are as excited as I am. It’s been quite a journey as I said, I
learned a lot of things, I learned a lot of you guys in the comments section. So
keep the comments coming. I really do appreciate them and read them all. And
yeah for sure thank you to everyone watching right now. Without you
wouldn’t be here and doing it. And thank you for all the partners and sponsors
who helped to keep things rolling in the past year. Now let’s get to the meat of
this video: Mainly a tour around the place. Have a closer look on all the
tanks that I have here. Most of them are empty but you will see. And yeah at the end,
like I said, the giveaway. So over here we have my what I call “the big
120”. It’s
a custom-made tank. It’s low iron glass, it’s 120 by 50 by 40 centimeters. So this
tank you can see here work in progress. This is something I wanted to be this
year my IAPLC entry but it took just way too much time
to glue the rocks. And once it started to take shape I didn’t want to rush it. So
this is going to be my IAPLC 2020 work! So you can see it here first glimpse on it. And yeah that’s mini landscape rock glued together with a cigarette filter super
glue technique. Check out the video how to use this
technique. Above the tank I have the Twinstar 1200 suspended light with some
adjustment rolls so you can easily adjust the height. I don’t know if you
can see this you can do this super easily. And
ya now it’s kind of bouncing back and forth on the background. Don’t get
distracted by this. And yeah on this tank I want to break it down, the
entire process and show you literally step by step how I built the hardscape
and the substrate, the planting everything like in a separate video. So
there will be an entire playlist for this tank. We will start probably with
finalizing the hardscape then we go on the technical side, install the filter,
the co2 and all these things. And then yeah have a closer look on the light,
why I like it why I use it and then plant it, start it etc.. So like a full
playlist on this tank and my Apple watch tells me “I have a good start into the
day” yes! I have to do some push-ups, to.. you know, the push-up challenge with George… 😉 Okay guys
so this tank over here is yeah my current beauty. It’s the only tank that’s
running that’s the fun thing about this tank. I entered it into the IAPLC. Here I
have the letter. I still haven’t open it, so that’s maybe
content for another video but obviously you guys following up with the results
of the IAPLC contest, you know my ranking. so this is my best IAPLC rank ever! Never thought it gonna rank this high, so actually I just entered it because, I
haven’t have nothing else and yeah so on this tank there are a couple of videos
coming your way. First of all there will be video about the ONF light the FLATONE. Kind of long-term review, also on this tank I plan to do an LED comparison
tests. So I did a recent big comparison test of like 20 different light units
with spectrum, lumen, par, lux everything measuring really
professionally. We have all the data and I will put like my favorite lights on
top of this tank show you how they look like on this tank and yeah just talk
about different LED units and give you in general like a final update on this
one and for the sake of this video I have up here an image this is my IAPLC
image. I don’t know if I can show you for too long, if I’m.. I don’t know, breaking
the rules here? Hopefully I don’t get disqualified for doing this. So guys, now getting to this bad boy over
here, this is my 60p aquarium on the garden
stand and it looks kind of weird. So we have here double bottom structure for
the stream tank and we have the Wabi Kusa wall attach to the back of the tank
and of course to make this all work the water level is not going to be all the
way up, it will be rather somewhere here and so this tank we are going to take in
several different steps. I’m going to show you all the hardware we have here, the
filtration, the co2, the pump, because there’s an extra pump down here. How this
double bottom thing works, because it’s been 3d printed. The Wabi Kusa wall,
the hardscaping, the planting, all those different steps gonna be different
videos. And I’m super-excited particularly about this one. I just cannot wait to
show you all the details about this 60p aquarium Okay guys, so this is kind of a familiar
situation here for you. You’ve seen me here editing videos, doing those you know,
“back and forth ” and over here on my desk I would like to get some good stuff as
well. So over here I have a little Baiosphere I don’t know for those of you
who know what it is, I don’t have to explain for the others: that’s like a
little glass with a build in light, which creates an entire ecosystem for yeah,
I don’t know for Mosses, Ferns. You can grow your aquarium plants in there. Terrestrial or Emerse state in there which is pretty cool, like you know all
the Wabi Kusa stuff and behind me, I have an Ultumnature nano tank,
again with a TWINSTAR rgb LED light and yeah, I would like to have a little aquascape
here on the table as well, so I’m going to scape this for you. The idea with
the Nano tank is, that I want to keep the scapes really simple, you know like fast-food
aquascaping. I gotta keep them for I
don’t know like 2 months, 3 months maybe keep the layouts very simple, just
maybe 2, 3, maximum 5 different plant species and I gonna document the
entire creation process, the evolution to the final result,
so you have like little video recipes, that you can consume and then repeat
them if you like it. the final setup here in the studio is this little Do!aqua
Branch Light for the Wabi Kusa. This is the original, this is where all of
the Wabi Kusa comes from, from this planted balls. So yeah, I’m not sure yet what I’m
going to do with this one, but I definitely want to set it up! Specifically because I
drilled a hole in the countertop here in the kitchen, to hide, you know all the
cables and everything you cannot see anything here, it looks super nice, yeah
so I have to use it. So I don’t know yet if I’m going just to plant the glass, or if
I’m going to put here some sort of different glass container with something inside I
don’t want to reveal yet. I’m doing very soon, it’s really cool, you’re going to love
it! I’m so not sure if I’m going to use a specific
light for it or I’m going just put it here underneath, or
I can just plant this one as classic as it is, so something’s going happen in
here as well, so watch out for this! So guys, now we are at the end of the video
and I promised you to announce, finally announce, I just looked it up – it’s been
8 months since the 10k giveaway so finally announce the winner of this one
and for this one I’m going to go in the comment section of this
video and pick the winner so let’s do it right now! we have here I don’t know we
have plenty of comments and yeah so that one comes pretty quickly and I’ve been
looking into the comments before actually and this one stands out for me, because this
guy he’s literally commenting in every video like this long comments and really
goes into detail and that really means a lot to me. Like I told you guys, I’m
reading your comments. And the lucky winner is Luis Ribeiro from Portugal and
Luis thank you very much for all of your comments! Congratulations, you just won,
I don’t know a piece of MOSSCOTTON it can be this beautiful SCAPE HARD or any
other designs, so please get in touch with me via Instagram direct message would
be the best and I would like to sum up his comment for you, just very briefly. So he said, his favorite video is the one that I’m recording next, because he has
watched them all, but if he had to pick one, it would be the 90 centimeters USM
Haller this private customer tank in this very architecture heavy house and
he said, the combination of the aquarium and the architecture is pure art for him. So once again, Luis thank you very much. And I promised you something else as well,
now at 25k I’m hosting another giveaway and this time I think maybe the
printed picture of the 60 P would be quite awesome if you could have it
signed with you know my IAPLC entry so that’s the giveaway that you can win
now, at 25 K milestone. Just comment down below and say, I don’t know maybe best
video in 2019 and what you would like to see you next on this channel!

of videos I hope you’re as pumped as I
am like I said and it’s gonna be awesome the season 2 on YouTube peace out

  1. Great to see you back Jurijs, you have been greatly missed.
    Can’t wait to watch your upcoming series, it sounds Awesome!

  2. 🌺Nice to see you back. It would be very nice for us, if you made a little more videos, but please don't get burnt out. CoNgRatS to Luis for winning the 10k giveaway! CoNgRatS to you, Jurijs for reaching over 25k subscribers!🎉

  3. Congratulations on 25K!!! I know you already helped do a feature for Green Aqua's fish room but seeing your full selection process for your upcoming projects would be nice and/or maybe even more specific price breakdowns by the piece of equipment, plant, and livestock as the new projects progress would be helpful as the hobby continues to evolve and grow with newer items becoming more readily available.

  4. Timestamp of that beautiful scape 10:35.
    Good to see you making YouTube videos again. Turned on the notification and the bell.

  5. Zuallererst, willkommen zurück Jurijs! Ich freue mich schon sehr auf deine kommenden Projekte! 😃🌱💦🐠
    Zuerst einmal bin ich schwer gespannt auf dein Aquarium mit den 3D gedruckten Elementen. Ich selber bin ebenfalls Besitzer eines 3D Druckers und passionierter Nutzer dieser Technik. Das ist aus technischer Sicht mein Favorit. Auch sehr interessieren wird mich die Lichtanalyse, auch wenn ich die verwendete Technik nicht ganz nachvollziehen kann die angewendet wurde, da ich lediglich vertraut bin in der Nutzung der sogenannten Ulbrichtkugel und eines Lichtspektrometers.

    Ich wünsche dir für die Zukunft alles Gute und hoffe, dass deine Zusammenarbeit mit Logan Früchte trägt! 😉

  6. Hey. Welcome back! I’m really looking forward on your upcoming videos. Yesterday, I was like “man, I hope Jurijs will upload more videos.” And here you are haha.
    Keep them coming. You’re a real inspiration for a lot of us, especially me. Because of you, I was inspired to join the iaplc next year. Hope you’ll have a great year! Keep on scaping

  7. my favourite video of 2019 was the one where you showed us how to attach java fern and lava rock to a sticky cup for the aquarium glass – very helpful! instagram- @nic_lawrenson4 also, hi logan!

  8. great to see you back sir. i like the protips and you have nice ideas and the projects. can't wait to see project turn out :D. maybe idea about comparison spec aquascape. and i like how you editing this video.

  9. My favorite videos were about the custom 20.000 l/hr river stream tank you aquascaped. I was so inspired I made my own stream tank, and I referenced your videos frequently. So thanks for all the inspiration and pro tips! I'm excited about your plans for the channel.

  10. My favorite is the scape you did at Green Aqua. The illusion of depth, the intricate hardscape and choice of plants made it one of your best works to date, in my opinion.

  11. Mein Favorit ist tatsächlich das Video wo du uns den Trick mit dem Trimmen von Moos zeigst. Hat mir einfach extrem viel geholfen. Vielen Dank dafür und welcome back ✊🏼

  12. Hi, good to have you back , I have missed your regular videos.
    The quality looks very professional. 😎
    Looking forward to the new season. Thanks as always.

  13. I really appreciate your videos. Please please please remember to keep the videos as learning for beginners. I have noticed that products like the filters and lights etc. Do not come with instruction manual. So of us old people are not that great at finding instructions on line. So i have found out through your and George and 2 others videos how to maintain and use different products. So keep it for us beginners please. Keep up the good work remember quality over quantity!!!

  14. Legend is back. 🙂 Can i ask u something… What do u think about BGA? What causes is it? Everyone saying different things. How can i deal with it?

  15. My favourite video of 2019 was the planting video of where you scaped the beautiful aquarium at Zoo Flottmann and also the following update of that tank. What I would like to see next is how you're gonna scape your nano tank on your desk. @nh_scaping

  16. Nice video. Cannot wait for the new season. Very usefull information and hope to see the led video. All info about CO2 and testing water parameters.

  17. Schön mal wieder ein Video von Dir zu sehen. 100-150 neue Videos pro Jahr… das hört sich nach einer Menge Arbeit an… bzw eine Menge Abendunterhaltung für mich 😉 Dann mal frohes Schaffen, ich bin gespannt!

  18. The aquarium carpet pro tip video really helped me with setting up my first iwagumi aquascape. Other then that I enjoy all of you're videos there so soothing and uplifting at the same time. It's really awakened my love for aquascaping! Keep up the great work. Greetings from the netherlands

  19. Nice to see you again. Miss you on youtube.

    I can't wait for led lighting review. Especially for full spectrum (high cri) light.

  20. I like how you taught us to glue moss. Considering you learned this from the master, it nice to share it with us!
    I'm looking forward to seeing more tips on things like this as it's a wealth of knowledge. Also, live videos with George are always hilarious 😊. All the best in this new adventure!

  21. My favourite video was how to attach different ferns on the lava stone. What i like to see next is how you scape your baiospehre 👌🌿

  22. So excited for season 2! When I saw you filming at Green Aqua with Logan I was so pumped to have you back! My favorite video was the one where you rescaped your friends tank and stole some of his shrimp! Was a great gesture of you to rescape his tank and keep it while his power was out.

    Side note, have you been hitting the gym more often lately? Those pushups are paying off!

  23. This is amazing ! Happy to see you back on yt excited to see your content coming up !! My favorite video is the same as the contestant winners fav video that tank is amazing have been trying to mimic that style for my past 2 builds lol

  24. Glad you’re back man! Look forward to seeing new content and more information, education and inspiration from you.

  25. Awesome, looks proper exciting for the coming videos. I'm fresh in to this and have been watching hours of your videos as well as Green Aqua and George Farmer. You have totally inspired me to step up my game and get creative again. 🙏 Thank you. I'd love to show you my first tank when I get it scaped!😅

    Also, can't forget about the giveaway! My favourite video is the one about advertising and how you're not taking rubbish from these random companies turning out normal people's pockets like organised criminals! I hope you win against them!✊ Good luck and thanks for the awesome content so far!

  26. Fav video is the one ,with setting up that dimmer lol, had it for a long time but i was hard to set up , with your help i was really easy lol, good to see you back up , up to 50k, hell yeah i wanna win that photo, would hang it up

  27. Wow.. sooo much great content to look forward to, thank you. Also cant wait to see all the light comparisons as im looking to buy a new light soon, so this will help.. theres not too much info on the onf (which is what im leaning towards). And no too many videos that show the same tank with different lights on it so you get an idea.
    but all the new upcoming content looks great! : )

  28. This roadmap is immaculate and obviously each tank was exhaustively thought about. From simple, small, organic to large, complex and technical. I am all in with you on this journey because each of these would equal a comprehensive masterclass. I stumbled upon you from Green Aqua and I am genuinely excited that I did.

  29. Welcome back 🙂 my Favorite Video is the one where you show the technique to trimme mooses 😉 Looking forwart to your new stuff 🙂

  30. i just subscribed… this is just your second video i watched, first was when you mentioned "bushyphilandra" hahaha

    i do see you alot in the green aqua channel (where i started watching aquascaping videos) balazs doesn't like your diorama tank, well i love it because i also did a miniature diorama on my tarantula molt enclosed in plastic case…

    getting tuned in to your future projects on vids to watch and already hooked on that big 120 custom tank, an interesting scape for a gift to my mom I'm making her.

    thank you for reading my comment 😁

  31. U r my favorite…u have so many setup …u r so much passionate for mother nature….u have so many beautiful ideas in mind…

  32. Great video, has a great feel to it. Looking forward to yet more of your outstanding work, especially when you get around to using your botanicals from Tannin Aquatics!! (hint hint)!! 🙂 My favourite video of 2019 is the 'Step by Step River Stream Flow Tank aquascape tutorial', mainly because to me it was more like something that I would do, something that is a more natural looking setup. Good luck for 2020 mate!

  33. I saw you at the Green Aqua shop, I just left the shop, when I saw you. Just can´t wait for your new aquariums.

  34. My favourite video is you fixing your neglected Ada 60p as it’s so satisfying when it’s trimmed and cleaned. I think you should scape an Ada 45 or 60f and have some plants growing emersed for future videos. My Instagram is george_.harper

  35. Great that you are finally back on Track jurijs, really missed your great content. Can‘t wait to discover what you got for us!!! Wirklich schön das du wieder da bist bro!

  36. Congratulations on 25k! Very richly deserved. 😊

    The planted tank is gorgeous. 😊 I spotted a pretty fish in there that I don't recognise so I hope you make a video about the livestock in this tank. 😊

  37. WOW… mate! I just saw you new VID
    😳😄I WON the 10k giveaway? …really? Not kidding? 😋🤩🥳
    Thks so much!
    But thank you even more for all the great contents you share with us!
    We appreciate the effort, it’s really inspirational, and I can’t wait to see you Season 2 new tanks, making-offs being my favorite kind of videos, no doubt about it…
    Hope you’re OK, energized for the upcoming months, I hope that stupid # insta-law-nightmare has cleared away, and you’re pumped and excited to share your new creations with your fans
    Wishing you all the best, with a strong hug from Portugal, keep scaping our dreams mate!
    Cheers… stay safe, have fun! ><(((*>
    PS – I’ll contact you tomorrow through Instagram as requested. Thks again 🙏🏼😉🙌🏼

  38. Awesome! My favorite video of 2019 is THIS ONE! ….because you are on to even bigger and better things, hopefully all of us are! Congratulations on the 26K subscribers! I am looking forward to your second season. Thank you for sharing! – Little Bobby

  39. My favorite video for 2019 is your DIORAMA scape at Green Aqua. I like the depth of the hardscape, in fact i've been trying to replicate it using the spider driftwood on a 45cm tank, but still unfinished. 😁 Hoping to see more uploads with more great content from your channel. Best of luck from the Philippines.. 😊

  40. my favourite video(s) is the "Glue rocks together with SuperGlue and Cigarette filter in seconds", because where else is there a high quality tutorial on using cigarette filters. And it looks like there are rocks in this video glued using cigarette filters too! In the future I would like to see more videos on start-to-finish scaping sessions, and store visits. instagram- @aquagreenpussies

  41. Whats up man. I really looking forward to see all the small and nano tanks in creation. Also how to use wabi kusa staf and that "crazy" double botton tank. Im so curious. Lets gen on it.

  42. This is defo my favorite video since finally, you are back after a frightfully long time. Well, the diorama you created at Green Aqua is a very close second. At first, the title made me feel down (the "most of them empty" part) but now I am very excited. An empty tank is always tempting: a new challenge to create something new, play with the hardscape, etc. So all I can wish you is having a jolly good time while doing the new setups. Oh, and a big thumbs up for Logan. He did really well. 🙂 @mccannonmary

  43. Thanks for sharing Bro. Appreciate that, You need to get some work done on your aquariums. I like it. The never ending projects. Hope all is well. Stay Positive,…..

  44. My favorite video is the Diorama style ADA 60P , I really appreciate the step-by-step videos. For me these type of videos contain the most helpful information. I was lucky enough to witness it in real life in GreenAqua , it was definitely my favorite scape (and trust me its a big thing in the GreenAqua gallery full with other awesome scapes!) . Actually it made such a huge impression on me ,it inspired me to make my own diorama style aquarium! Its in progress but I cant wait to start it. Thanks for the inspiring videos, you are my favorite aquascaper.
