Hi and welcome to my Youtube CHannel. Today I have something different for you. I want to scape this 60cm Back to Nature Aquarium. It contains an Amazonas Background. First for the looks and in the back is the filtration system. It messures 60cm in lenght 50cm in depth and 35 in hight With the Background it is more or less standard size. This tank was used on a pet fair stand bevore. This is used to hide the filter. The cabinet is quiet high. 1,10m I want to scape it now. Nothing spectaculary, but lets see I have some left over plants here I will try mixing them togehter. Its rather gonna be a planted tank than an aquascape. The LED is by Twinstar and the tank was used 1,5 years. I haven’t had much time for maintenance. Now it’s time for a rescape. The moss is form the previews set up. I just kept it on ther for now. I am not entirely sure maybe I used the tank for even 2 years. The background is lifted slightly This is the overflow. The protective guard is missing… The Twinstar LED needs to rest on a tread. Because it won’t fit because of the frame. That’s why the treads are needed. I can even move it one here. That’s it for now. Let’s start. Before I start scaping I want to show you the filtration system. This is dry state, as you can see. Water will flow through the overflow. The guard is missing as I mentioned. I probably need to build a new one. Maybe 3D print it? Water is falling down into that chamber. The level will be about here. The first chamber here is for collecting the water. The mud can be cleaned away here and the heater is also mounted. Afterwards it’ll flow over there. The bottom is closed and these two sponges hold that filtration cotton in place. The water needs to pass it. It probably needs to be cleaned once a week. But the rest off the filter will stay clean. The white one might get pretty black. That’s a huge advantage to other filter systems. Just clean the cotton once a week. The mud can be removed easily that way. That is an easy process. So, water needs to pass several sponges. This biological filter matter. The gird on the bottom holds everything in place. I also place an air pump outlet here. Depending on your fish you might consider switching it on in the night. To make sure everything works as it should be. However I leave it on the whole time. I also have a co2 atomizer installed here. After the filtration process it will pass this ponge here. It is here just for safety reasons for the pump. This is a small pump 300l/h but it should be enough. Maybe I will switch to a stronger one. If you want you can put severeal things in this chamber too. My precious co2 atomizer for example. The co2 enriched water can directly flow back into the thank. That’s the outlet. A simple pvc pipe. That’s the system behind it. nothing new. Has been working for over 30 years. Easy to set up and easy to maintain. Safe for dummies and the water can’t run out. I just poured in the substrate. It is not going to be a scape, just a planted tank. I put in this stones for the looks. ohko rocks and sand. Aswell as some smaller pieces of stone and the soil of course. Now let’s prepare the plants. Let’s move on Just minimalistic decoration. I found my plants. these are just leftovers. Echinodorus el diabolo Althernanthera. Cryptocoryne tropica. Lobilea cardinalis. pogostemon errectus. bucephalandra. Hygrophylia corymbosa. Micranthenum monte carlo Crypto parva. Glossostigma elationoides Hemianthus cube and althernanthera reineckii Anubias nangi and eleocharis parvula I just found those at home. Probably not all, but we want a planted tank… Maybe this one will grow out of water. Let’s start planting I will show you the result. I put all of them inside now. Let’s see how they grow Maybe a litlle too much, but I like it. Some of them sit here in the bakground. The bigger ones, as you can see. This Hygrophilya might grow a little bit over the water. The pot plants sit in the back and the invitro ones in the front. Also on the stones. As you can see, pretty easy a planted tank. Fish will be the eyecatching part. No shrimps for now. Let’s get the water inside. After cleaning the glass, I am done. Water is already clear. Look at that. Only the filter gourd is missing. This is a personal experiment. I use a different co2 reactor now. It has a membrane on top and the co2 slowly dissolves. Normally you will fill the tube up once day. I use it as an atmoizer. just for testing. co2 is already inside. It will slowy make its way into the tank. Normally you won’t mount this reactor on clissic co2 bottles. one bubble per second. Of course i will move it to the backround… I just want to see if it works. Maybe a little too much co2 for now. Thats it for now. Now let’s let them grow. If you follow me on insta or facebook, you will recive future updates. Or a new video, when I put fish inside? That is the idea. Fertilizer will be by Aquarebell. I wish you a good day. thanks for watching I try to be more active here on youtube, as you might see. I try to upload once a week, maybe twice in the future. I hope to have some comments with oppinions on this tank. Like me it if you want. Thanks for watching my videos so avidly. Sorry for my english fans, but I not so articulated in english. Bye bye see you next time.
