Creating a Nature Aquarium (do note that there are many substrate brands in the market, you do not need to follow EXACTLY the steps given below)
1. Bottom layer
-> lava rocks / ADA 5elements (Bacter100, clear super, tourmaline BC, Penac W, Penac P)

2. Substrate layer: Soil (eg: ADA aquasoil normal type, ADA aquasoil powder type, JBL base fert, etc)

3. Layout: Rocks, Driftwoods

4. Plants

5. Livestock: Fishes/shrimps/snails (add after major water change 50-70% 1week after initial setup)

"Dry Start Method" or "Emersed Growth Method"
Different people may have different opinions on this, but in my opinion this is the easiest way to create a scape especially "Iwagumi" style aquascapes where the plants we use are just foreground plants. One of the biggest challenges when we create aquascapes with just one variety of foreground plants is the plant mass is less when the initial planting is done. Now when we use substrate like ADA Amazonia II which is rich in nutrients the plant volume is not enough to absorb all the excess nutrients that algae takes over and it becomes extremely difficult to maintain such tanks until the plants have established and grown fully. Now for people who don't want to go through this trouble of the initial phase but yet end up with a Iwagumi scape like the one below, this method is the perfect solution.

During this phase you really don't need to do much maintenance on the tank. You don't need to have very high lights on the tank as well as there is no water column to penetrate. No CO2 injection required. All you need to do is keep your lights on for 8-10 Hrs a day, open the wrap once a week for 5 min so that fresh air gets in and seal it back up. The results after two and half months is below.
user posted image
Once the plants have filled in like shown above, it's time to fill the tank with water. Once the water is filled, CO2 injection is required and needs to be kept very high for 2 weeks close to 5 bubbles per second (bps). Afterward, bring it down to 3bps. Setup lights as per the plants requirements. (Cuba is not a very light demanding plant). Setup filter that you have decided on using. If you are using nutrient rich substrate like ADA Amazonia II, follow the below light and water change routine.

Week 1: 3 Hrs of Light , 50 % Water change once in 3 Days
Week 2: 5 Hrs of Light , 30 % Water change once in 3 Days
Week 3: 7 Hrs of Light , 30% Water change once a week
Week 4: 9 Hrs of Light , 30% Water change once a week

Your tank is completely cycled after this stage and if you follow the above routine you will have minimal algae issues except for some diatom algae during the first 2 weeks on the glass which is easily wiped off during your water changes.

NOTE: A correct combination of amount of Light , CO2 and nutrients is required to keep a planted tank free of algae bloom. In most cases it is excessive light that causes the problem. Keep your lighting moderate and you will have minimal algae issues.

Types of Filtration:
Mechanical Filtration: This type of filtration is used to remove suspended dirt, floating particles and debris from the water column. This type of filtration is achieved by foam, sponge, fiber mesh and similar fine meshed media. Below is an example of a Mechanical Filter Media from an Eheim Canister Filter.
user posted image

Biological Filtration: This is the main type of filtration that is required for any aquarium. This mainly consists of media like Ceramic Rings, Bio Balls, Lava Rocks, etc, essentially media which is highly porous which provides a large surface area. Lot of essential bacteria like nitrifying bacteria and microorganisms thrive and multiply in this type of media and the high surface area provided by this type of media directly results in the amount of bacteria that colonize in your filter. These bacteria are found in the tank and form a film over every surface inside the aquarium and are referred to as “Bio Film” but the quantity of this in the tank is not enough. Hence we use Biological Media in the filter to provide a good growing area for these bacteria. These bacteria convert harmful shrimp waste which is essentially ammonia into harmless nitrates which is readily absorbed by the plants as nutrients. Without the biological filtration in place the shrimp waste spoils the water quality and the flora and fauna suffer which also leads to death. This type of media should ideally form 80% of the entire media used in the filter.

There are commercially available products that have dormant essential bacteria that become active when you add them to your tank. It usually comes in a powder form and can be used underneath the substrate, sprinkled inside your tank and on the biological filter media. This will jump start your Tank cycling process. This can also be used in case you end up wiping out the essential bacteria in your setup for any reason. Some examples of these products are ADA Bacter 100, ADA Bacter Ball, Mosura Bio Plus etc. There is also biological filtration media which come seeded with the essential bacteria like ADA Bio Rio which also reduces your tank cycling time and also has excellent surface area for your bacteria to colonize. To know if you’re nitrifying bacteria and other essential bacteria are doing well, you can use an ammonia/nitrite test kit. These should ideally be zero.Below is a picture of ceramic rings.


Chemical Filtration: This type of filter is used to remove harmful chemicals from the water in the tank. Activated Carbon is what is used to act as a chemical filter. The life of activated carbon is 7 – 14 days based on the quality. After which it needs to be replaced if required. External Canister Filters come with an Activated Carbon Pad as a part of the filter media. Once a tank is cycled, you really don’t need to have this media in your filter unless you suspect that there are some harmful chemicals in the water. It is good to keep this media handy with you, in case for any reason if some harmful chemicals do get introduced to your tank through the tap water or other sources you can use this media in your filter to nullify the effect of those chemicals on your shrimps. Below is a picture of Activated Carbon

Common types of mechanical filter
External Canister Filters: These are the best type of filters for planted aquarium. They have a large media chamber which can be effectively used for housing a large amount of Biological Media. They sit outside the tank and hence make the tank look clutter free. Have a smooth and silent operation. Eheim Filters are one of the best External Canister Filters available in the market. Below is a picture of an Eheim Classic Canister Filter and the ideal way to layer media in the canister filter.
user posted imageuser posted image

Hang On Back Filter: Also called as HOB’s, these filters are hung on the edge of the glass, there is a pipe which goes into the aquarium and is used to siphon the water out into the main filtration chamber which sits outside the aquarium and flows back into the aquarium through an outlet. These come in various filter capacity referred to as LPH (Liters per Hour). These are ideal for small tanks. You can put some Biological Filtration Media in the chamber, but the space is very limited.
user posted image

Sponge Filter: This type of filter is the most commonly used filters, this filter is placed completely inside an Aquarium and is air driven by an aerator. The main component of these filters is a sponge which acts as a mechanical filter and this works well as a biological filter as well. These again come in various sizes and you should choose one based on your tank capacity.
user posted image

Under Gravel Filter: Also commonly known as UG Filter. This consists of a base plate with grooves, The substrate is covered over the base plate. There is a pipe which goes into the base plate and this is the one which is visible above the surface. This filter as the sponge filter is a air driven filter. The essential bacteria colonization happens in the base plate. Some professional breeders use this in conjunction with the External Canister Filter, where the pipe coming from the base plate is connected to the intake of the canister filter. When you are using UG Filter ensure that you use a substrate that does not easily break down, as this will get into the grooves of the base plate and eventually end up clogging it.

Cleaning Your Filter:
Yes, there is a right way to do this. Your filter is constantly removing debris and muck from your tank and all this is getting accumulated in the filtration media in your filter. This accumulation reduces the filters flow rate and hence its effectiveness. Ensure that you clean your filter media when you see your filter flow rate has reduced.

Take some water from the aquarium in a vessel or tub, rinse and squeeze the dirt out from the mechanical filter media in this tub. For the biological filter media like your ceramic rings, bio balls etc, what i usually do is put them in a wide mesh net bag so that they can be easily removed for filter maintenance. Just dip the bag with the filter media a couple of times in the tub to remove large pieces of dirt and debris. Do not give a thorough wash for this media, the concept is simple, if you give it a good wash you will end up wiping away the majority of your bacteria along with it and it takes time for the biological filter to establish again. Another thing that i do is always after a filter is cleaned, i put in some artificial bacteria like ADA Bacter 100 into the filter chamber itself in the cases of Canister and HOB, In cases of other filters i just put this into the tank itself to replenish lost bacteria.

Thanks to ShrimpNow !!!

No filter. The whole pond is meant to be filtered with the mass of valisneria in the middle, and the clumps of rotala and ludwigia by the sides.

And the algae lmao. I swear though, it does not look anywhere near as murky from the top.

And yes, that is my throne.

Sniper, thats a pretty cool setup. Is that just normal teratai?

And does anyone know where they sell ludwigia sedoides in malaysia? A prettier looking floating plant I have not seen.

Ludwigia sedioides - I found some at Nilufar. Very pretty. This was like a month ago. Oh.. I forgot. Try Sungai Buloh. The guy though, tried to sell them to me along with a humongous pot. Said he wouldn't sell separately. It's a shop selling just pots... gosh I can't remember which lot though. Maybe you can sweet talk him into selling them to you. Am also looking for it.

Thanks. Thats not very far from where I live, so will try to make the trip when I'm free.

Was the guy trying to sell you the pot in Nilufar of the Sungai Buloh shop?

If its the latter, thats really interesting. So many aquatic plants are grown emersed, I sometimes wonder if we could find something new for our tanks when browsing nurseries.

That's what i thought so, it doesn't looks like algae to me, but fungus more. Treating it with Hydrogen Peroxide, but time consuming.

Tzuen, I really think it looks more like diatoms than fungus....

Fungus tends to appear on wood, or something organic that they can feed off of.

This may be off topic, but to me keeping a betta is just like keeping any other fish: 1. regular water change to avoid build up of ammonia, 2. space 9.5 L (or 2.5 gallons) and up is ideal (but smaller containers with religious WC are okay too, depending on the size of bettas) , 3. good quality betta food they're carnivores, they can't eat normal fish food. Fin rot is mainly caused by ammonia build up, can easily be remedied with clean water and aquarium salt if the fin rot is severe. You can also put a piece of ketapang leaf in your betta tank. It'll also be ideal to have a filter, although not necessary, because you can do less frequent water change when the tank is fully cycled. This link is useful : Water change schedule based on water volume . Having a planted tank with or without filtration is beneficial for the bettas in so many ways. Especially the floating plants. My tap water usually has 10 - 20 ppm of nitrates in it but after 3 days, when I tested the water parameters, ammonia, nitrites and nitrates are 0 in my betta containers which are half covered by floating plants.

So good luck smile.gif

just a suggestion, maybe can add in the medication for fish that treats for fin rotting? blue colour type? I think that works wonders.... even though this is for the rocks etc...

do remember to make regular water changes too. smile.gif

Sniper: the dorsal fin looks a bit tattered but I can't say for sure. Halfmoon bettas tend to bite their own fins for many reasons, most unknown, sometimes boredom, or stress. The fin in fin rot usually has black or red edges and the egdes itself look frayed. I wouldn't worry about it if you keep a tight schedule on the water change. Monitor the water parameter if you have a test kit. and your plants will help. the floating ones will propagate like crazy with enough light/sunlight.

Tzuen, I really think it looks more like diatoms than fungus....

Fungus tends to appear on wood, or something organic that they can feed off of.

Thanks Ashraf. Just google, and i hope this option works.

Brown Algae (Diatoms)
Diatom Algae

Brown Algae, or diatoms, often present themselves as a brown, muddy, muck that covers plant leaves and hardscape items. It is rare to be seen in a fully established aquarium.

Causes:
Newly setup tank – Aquariums that have just been setup seem to be prone to diatom algae.
Excess nutrients – Silica in particular appears to be a trigger. Contact your water utility company for a report detailing silica concentrations in your water supply.
Possibly old bulbs – Sometimes, old bulbs can encourage the conditions for diatom algae.

Cure:
Time – Allow it to use up the excess silica, and it will often disappear on its own.
Manual removal – Siphon/scrape diatoms manually for quick removal.
Algae Crew – Otocinclus and Nerite snails are fantastic at clearing a tank of diatoms. They help with other sorts of algae as well.

Thanks for the headsup.

I'm doing ~25% WC per day since its new and remove detritus whenever it appears (reason why I use white gravel).

This may be off topic, but to me keeping a betta is just like keeping any other fish: 1. regular water change to avoid build up of ammonia, 2. space 9.5 L (or 2.5 gallons) and up is ideal (but smaller containers with religious WC are okay too, depending on the size of bettas) , 3. good quality betta food they're carnivores, they can't eat normal fish food. Fin rot is mainly caused by ammonia build up, can easily be remedied with clean water and aquarium salt if the fin rot is severe. You can also put a piece of ketapang leaf in your betta tank. It'll also be ideal to have a filter, although not necessary, because you can do less frequent water change when the tank is fully cycled. This link is useful : Water change schedule based on water volume . Having a planted tank with or without filtration is beneficial for the bettas in so many ways. Especially the floating plants. My tap water usually has 10 - 20 ppm of nitrates in it but after 3 days, when I tested the water parameters, ammonia, nitrites and nitrates are 0 in my betta containers which are half covered by floating plants.

So good luck smile.gif

Been there done that, I even had a ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, pH tester and everything was normal hmm.gif

Yes, done both the salt and Melafix. Btw, don't get melafix doesn't do anything, in fact it might make it worse lol. It's basically tea tree oil.

kytz: It happened to most of my halfmoon bettas. If not fin rot, it's tail biting. I kept them in these 2 gallons plastic containers. I think they were stressed out because like you, I did everything I could, alternate day WC. I bought them all nice and in a few weeks their tails were frayed. So I borrowed my mom's big ceramic containers, about 6 gallons or so, put some ketapang leaves, plenty of floating plants and released them in their respective containers. The next day they were flaring, more active, and their appetite improved tremendously. I do only do weekly 50-60 % WC with them in the containers. 2 months after they were first transferred, their fins were restored although a bit lighter coloured, they grew larger and overall healthier.

I do not know if it's the extra space/volume of water, or the ketapang leaves or the darker environment that makes them healthier and happier (I assume they're happy). I bought those long plastic planters, those Baba brands you find in garden nurseries with stoppered holes at the side and bottom to put the newly bought bettas in. They can also hold like 6 gallons of water. The downside to it is that 1. you can't see them only from the top, 2. those things may be awkward if placed indoors. But my bettas and floating plants love them. Maybe you can give them another try then smile.gif

PS: Another thing i find weird, maybe if anyone care to explain this is that before this I used my filter, just one of those small Panasonic filter you install in the kitchen sink, definitely not RO water. The thing is for my well filtered planted tanks, my fish and shrimps do fine in them but the bettas in unfiltered containers got quite lethargic. Whereas the betta I have upstairs are doing quite well with normal treated tap water. Maybe it's just coincidence? Maybe there's not much trace elements in the filtered water. Anyway, I've stopped using filtered water for all my tanks. Using the filtered water in the first place was just for my own peace of mind in case I forgot to add Prime.

Mine was like lethargic like hell in during the first couple days.

Now when I feed him dried bloodworm, the fella will jump to grab it.

I'm asking cos not sure if I should interact with him so much or not.

They do love their bloodworms smile.gif Bettas are quite intelligent. It's good that you interact with yours. He'll soon be following your movement the moment you enter the room. Another good reason to put floating plant in your tank is to discourage the betta from jumping out of the tank. They can jump. Mine aren't good jumpers (so far) so I don't have to put a lid on the containers smile.gif

For better light penetration, go for T5. LED light is energy save and bright, but if you intend to grow some carpet plants like monte carlo better go for T5.

Visited lentang yesterday - I'm sure most people already know where what is, if they've ever been on the KL-Karak Highway.

Anyways, the rocks in the stream there are covered in fissiden. Fissidens is pretty much unmistakable.

Not just that, but lots of moss growing underwater as well.

If anyone wants to grow some fissiden, don't bother with LFS or tho se 1 inch by 1 inch metal meshes. Just get yo buns over to a stream, bring some bags, and a scraper biggrin.gif

If you have bubblenesters like bettas and gouramis, it could be that.

Otherwise, probably a buildup of organic material combined with lack of water movement.

What size tank, what stocklist, how heavily planted is it, and most importantly, how often do you change the water, and how much?

I'd say your tank is at full bioload, which, combined with just 1 plant, means that you'll need a good water change regime.

Is the tank cycled?

You don't always do 100% water changes, right? How much do you normally change, and how frequently.

Also, does the tank have a filter?

Umm. Bioload means? Overcrowded?

The fishes and plant has been there for about 4 months? I change my water approx every 2 weeks. Im starting to see these foams approx 1.5 months back.

I do have a small filter.

When I say tank bioload I'm referring to its capacity to hold fish and invertebrates.

A full bioload means the tank is at max capacity. The problem is that you've housed schooling fish in rather small groups, but thats besides the point.

Do you use dechlorinator when you cahnge the water?

I advise you to change 50% every week.

You can remove the foam with a fishnet, or scooping it up manually.

Wouldn't hurt to lower the water level - let the filter splash a bit. Creating disturbance on the water surface helps prevent foam formation.

CO2...
depend on what plant do you want to grow
it also use to accelerate the plant growth (plus fertilizer)
especially among aquascaper enthusiast who like to compete in yearly competition
so it's an open debate wherether it's a necessary or not
depend on your personal preference

for light...
even T8 are good enough if you got shallow tank
but normally many ppl use T5 because it penetrate more light into the tank
and easy to purchase at any LFS
and again depend on our setup and what plant to wish to grow

for those who want start this hobby, you might need to do a research on the type of plants and view that you want to try... and for beginner, maybe just start off with moss first, as most of the nice plants need either enough co2 to keep them alive, or cooling temperature, or worth, both...
if you really think of play with carpet plant, maybe try monte carlo, quite easy to grow as long as your light bright and co2 is good enough

any idea how to prevent this thing from happening ? fighting with these green algae stuff for few months but still cant get rid of it.

the aquarium is located at outside of the house. got a bit sun shine during the day but i had tried to cover it with woods and clothings to prevent this from happening but it seems didnt work out that well... Im currently using FILTRO 2.0 filter that LFS claim 100% to remove algae, all in one solution.......... icon_question.gif

Hi guys, I'm planning to build a nano water plant tank for my computer desk at home, probably around 5-10g.
I recently saw some cool nano tanks from a pet shop near to where I take my dog for behavioral class and was motivated to build one.
I just like to ask since I've only been in Malaysia for 3 years if you guys could recommend some pet shops that sells a wide variety of water plants, FW fishes, tanks, and other supplies.
Because as convenient as online buying is, I prefer to go to the stores myself so I can enjoy browsing through all the amazing fishes and plants. I live in Cyberjaya which is in Selangor so if you could recommend sellers or pet shops near my area I would really appreciate it.
Also after reading articles about this hobby I decided on getting slow growing plants. Can you guys give me some suggestions for slow growing water plants that would be best for a nano tanks. TIA

This is my 1st post of tank, the tank is about 90 Days old, the HC is growing too slow, i was thinking to insert root fert to boost the growth of HC.
Any advice?

Current Dosing

one of the reason why it's recommended to keep aquarium indoor
but you can also try using UV aquarium filter
found an articles that suggest several step can be taken to combat green water

have you try using much more intense lighting??
from the picture seem like they didn't get enough lighting

and what kind of substrate are you using???
if substrate that specially made for planted tank...
i doubt you need to add root fert just after 90 days of setup

Im using Wavepoint 30W 8000k Daylight LED, it should be enough just that i took this picture in daytime with very strong reflection.
Once thinking to use T5HO, but the temperature might be an issue, now using LED with 24/7 fan, the temp stable around 26-27.
Im using ADA Amazonia.

is ur tank 2ft?

how far is the light away from the water surface? usually it should be about 5-6" away for maximum light penetration.

mine 4ft with 100w led floodlights..... too much light edi... growing bba.. haha
i am waiting for a few parts to change them down to 2 x 20w led because nowadays growing anubias / ferns only. no big demand plants...

i would think that yours should be a bit on the lower end. any chance to add on some cfl to boost the light? maybe can put a 20w cfl at one end to see the effect...

Hi guys smile.gif

Im planning to set up a low tech small planted tank (1ft+). Want to add some driftwood or stones inside.

Just wondering, is it safe to use the stones n wood found by the riverside? Do I need to boil the stones as well?

Thanks! notworthy.gif

planted tank only??or
you plan to put any livestock(fish,shrimp,snail etc) inside??
for wood normally people boil it to get rid off the tannins and
for rock it doesn't need to be boil BUT
it might change your water PH(alkaline or acidic) which is depend
on what kind of livestock you plan to put inside the tank

The livestock would just be guppies, perhaps an algae eater/otto in the future. smile.gif

Rock im probably gonna get the ADA ryu stones. Just that this weekend gonna go to a waterfall, perhaps can find some nice ones as well. If the rock has algae/moss on it, would it be sufficient to just scrub them off with a sponge? or need to soak in something?

some people do suggest that you can kill the algae/moss by soaking it in chlorine mix water OR
you can also just let it dry under hot sunny day for couple of days OR
you can baked them in the oven
and i'm not sure which are more effective because i personally never tried it

Yellow's probably the tannin from the driftwood.

You can try repeatedly soaking and boiling the driftwood until the tanin's removed.

fall3n: i am with sniper on his thinking. yellowing of water is likely the tannin... it will take a few weeks to months depending on the wood size. my 2 pcs of medium size wood took 2 months to clear. fishes doesn't seem bothered with it. if its already in the tank, leave it as it is an keep your water change schedule once a week until its cleared.

unless ur fishes are showing signs of sickness, i wouldn't do anything more to the naturally occurring things.

danny: you need to know why we clean or soak the rocks in the first place. cleaning is to get rid of any foreign items that may pollute your tank.
soaking is to determine if the rock is suitable underwater. some rocks reacts to bleach. this means the rock will make your water with high GH/KH (very hard water) which is not so good for some plants/fishes. personally, my java ferns are growing better after i took out some rocks which are making water very hard (and throwing off my ph reading). with hard water, the leaves are smaller as i observed. i could be wrong because i did a few other things like light change to led etc.

hope above helps. cheers.

Alright, I removed the driftwood already anyway. Fish no sign of sickness but I almost killed all my cherry shrimps once when I tried to add a new plant into the tank. Not knowing why they keep twitching I removed all of them attempt to save them. Manage to save most of them though. Then I let my tank running with only plants for about a week now.

Now that I think back, when i add the new plant, some cloudy stuff came out from the substrate, could be the reason why the shrimps acting up.

cloudy stuff the beneficial bacteria in your substrate. it is normal when you disturb the substrate. your cheery shrimps are very sensitive to its conditions. try not to disturb the substrate or your tank smile.gif

before you add new plants, make sure its free from pesticides or chlorine water. add anti chlorine and soak for a few hours to overnight best. make sure its washed nicely to remove any pests and also danger when you buy from the LFS.

no worries. but just to let you know the cherry shrimps comments are based on wat i read on the net. i kept mostly hardy fishes like angelfish and swordtails and probably some ghost shrimps.

happy aqua scaping.

Im wondering if using amazonia soil would offset the pH changes by the rocks. hmm.gif

By the way, would it be possible to plant a carpet plant without CO2? E.g. Marsilea, Micranthemum, Glosso.

the other 2 plants i'm not so sure, but glosso, you need high lighting, as well as frequent water changing if you decide not to use co2. they will still grow upwards though.

danny, my tank also has amazonia inside mixed with normal soil. so far no change of ph levels. the problem with some rocks that reacts to water that it will slowly increase your ph. thats the reason why some ppl drop a few drops of bleach to see if it sizzles. if it reacts/sizzles, then it will change your water ph in the long run (maybe a few days depends on the amount of rocks).

i found out my lfs has those light yellow gravel which i cover on top of amazonia that changed my water ph. at first i thought it was the rocks that i brought back from seaside. after doing the bleach test only i found the culprit.

if you wanna do planted tank, it's best not to get curved tank, just get the flat one, it will look nicer, speaking from experience.

just get the bleach from 99 speed mart, RM2 something only. don't assume the rocks you buy from aquarium are all safe for use. just bleach them then wash with running water will do. however, ryu stone should be fine.

you're right. flat tanks look better. especially the ADA ones drool.gif but gila pricey. gonna scout around, aiming for 40cm.

thinking of doing low-tech iwagumi with hairgrass / micranthemum monte carlo. due to no CO2, i guess the dry start method should be better. do i need root tabs or fertilizer for hairgrass / micranthemum? hmm.gif

if your amazonia is less than 6 months old, no ferts required. usually after 6 mths only it will used up most of it nutrients. this is based on my own findings when i first started. smile.gif

this is general guideline, it will also depend on the plants and amount of soil you have put in.

just get the new amazonia, you can but in loose pack. no need root tabs, but it's good to have. but i think you can make do without it.

Hi guys, I'm planning to build a nano water plant tank for my computer desk at home, probably around 5-10g.
I recently saw some cool nano tanks from a pet shop near to where I take my dog for behavioral class and was motivated to build one.
I just like to ask since I've only been in Malaysia for 3 years if you guys could recommend some pet shops that sells a wide variety of water plants, FW fishes, tanks, and other supplies.
Because as convenient as online buying is, I prefer to go to the stores myself so I can enjoy browsing through all the amazing fishes and plants. I live in Cyberjaya which is in Selangor so if you could recommend sellers or pet shops near my area I would really appreciate it.
Also after reading articles about this hobby I decided on getting slow growing plants. Can you guys give me some suggestions for slow growing water plants that would be best for a nano tanks. TIA

Try Natural Aquarium in SS19 Subang Jaya for plants. They used to carry a very comprehensive stock of plants, but less so these days- it seems that aquascaping is not so popular anymore. There is still an extensive selection of slower growing ferns and moss in their overgrown tanks. This shop also carries a huge variety of rocks and driftwood. Be careful not to gauge your eyes out when sorting through them on the shelves.

Aquascape Paradise is a relatively new shop in Section 13, Shah Alam. They carry a lot of plants and almost no fishes. The major problem with this shop is that staff don't seem to know their own stock. Many plants have melted away in their tanks, and they have sold me wrong plants a few times because their labels don't match what's being displayed.

If you like to look at fishes, make a trip to Aquatics International in Kampung Subang, near the Subang Airport. Look it up on google maps.
It's partly an ornamental fish farm and partly a biggest fish shop in town.

For a slightly smaller 'biggest' fish shop, try Xian Leng / Xian Long in Section 23 Shah Alam. Don't use google maps for this one- it still points to their old location. This shop usually have some common aquatic plants in stock.

By the way, all these shops can be reached from cyberjaya via a highway towards shah alam and subang jaya (ELITE?). The furthest one is Aquatics International, but it's worth a special trip.

Have fun!

TBH, I'm also not sure though. tongue.gif

70w will be too much?  blink.gif
usually its 55w for max or less, all about ure tank setup to be honest IMHO.
But with higher lighting, requires higher co2 output and adequate ferts plus acceptable cooling system.
If not, myriads of problems will arise(melting,bba,diatoms,gsa,fish discolouration due to heat, etc ,etc)

that's the down side of using diy c02. if you use those pressurise may not have so much of problem due to its consistent co2 supply.

0.1ml? might as well you don't put. too little la... 2ft tank, you can even dose 10ml every alternate days to kill the bba away. bba happens when there's not enough co2 presence, right?

my recommendation, instead of PLL, get the friendly CFL bulb type ligthing if you cant afford LED.
They dont need ballast, and if the bulb goes kaput, its easy to find, easy to install and cheap.
PLL produce more heat, not only will your tank inhabitant will suffer, but your ballast too. Ask PLL lighting users,
have they suffered at least one overheated ballast or not. tongue.gif
And usually Metal Hallide people use for bigger setup, maybe 3ft ++ IMHO.
I may be wrong though.

well said luqee. cfl most convenient. just replace and go. no need to bother about the ballast etc.

i wanted to do it but my led housing will all go to waste.

so instead, i am now waiting to go 20w red blue led grow light from 50W 6500k white. waiting for the driver to come in.. hehe...

hmm...CFL seems promising, at least i can change the fixture with the same lighting reflector. Does those reptile lighting reflector lamp works great on planted tank? or just a regular lighting reflector will do?

Just personal opinion, i think the plant on left and right (micranthemum?) should put a bit to the back. Not suitable as foreground unless it's short or forms a carpet. Let the hairgrass fill the front, and perhaps the micranthemum can creep a bit at the left and right. will look more spacious. thumbup.gif

if u dont mind me asking, may i know what kind of lighting do u use?

Nice planted tank, here's my noob tank.
I found that Pygmy Chain Sword, Echinodorus Tenellus (might be wrong name) is the best plant for a low tech tank without CO2, and without soil, just holland sand.

All easy plants like annubia, Java Fern, Java Moss will melt in my tank after a few months, but this plant just keep growing.

well, you can start with LFS who are specialize in aquascaping products and services.
TBH, last time i used normal guppy plastic tank as my tank, was cheap and easy to find but i realized in later stages,
you will have a hard time cleaning them thanks to GSA since you need to scrap them using razor blades sweat.gif
