【DENNERLE】Display Tank Show @Singapore New aquascaping @fishy business online store. Plants are growing well during these five months. Dennerle products used: Substrate- DeponitMix Professional 200. Gravel-Crystal Quartz Gravel Water Treatment-S7 Vitamix Trace Elements, E15 FerActiv, V30 Complete Plant Food, PlantaGold 7. CO2 controller- Dennerle CO2 regulator with night cut-off.
Step 1： Substrate Dennerle DeponitMix Professional Pour a layer of ready-to-use DeponitMix Professional onto the base of the aquarium. This layer containing minerals is vital for the plants. Gravel alone is not enough! DeponitMix is a long-term mineral bed rich in nutrients and trace elements which has been developed especially for aquarium plants.
Step 2: Crystal Quartz Gravel Now cover the DEPONIT-Mix with the hardener-free Crystal Quartz Gravel. This will provide firm support for the plants’ roots. Gravel variants in various colours are available to enable you to design your own individual bed. Use gravel with rounded grains – this will protect your bottom-dwelling fish from injury. All gravel varieties from DENNERLE have rounded grains.
Step 3: Decoration
Finally, decorate the surface of the bed with stones or coarse pebbles (lime-free!). Wood roots can be used to design a particularly natural-looking aquascape. Roots are also important to fish, e.g. as hiding places or territorial boundaries; many catfish eat wood to aid their digestion.
Got the new tank yesterday and set it up today. Unfortunately I forgot to water the root before and now I couldn’t use it :( it has to remain in the bucket for a few weeks …. The scape looks pretty empty without the root. Will update the blog with pictures when I finally can set it in. Shrimp are feeling good so far, snails too. Have a mean cladro algae in some plants, must pick out. Wish me luck it won’t spread again! (All that marimos fault grr) AQ*44
What kind of animal is going to live in it.
Currently the shrimp (neocaridina davidii) I got since more than a year and some snails but I will get some Rasbora Galaxy fish soon :) Excited! But I want to wait until the root is finally set in..
Galaxys are doing well in mine :) And your Bucephalandras are getting huge, nice job!
omgnumbat said: Hiya! I'm currently planning my future tank stocking, and I know I want a Betta Splendens, and some Red Cherry shrimp (and I'll pray the Betta won't eat them haha). After seeing Galaxy Rasboras on your blog, and finding out they are quite common in my area, how big of a tank do you recommend for a Betta, some shrimp and a school of Galaxy Rasboras? Also, how big of a school do you recommend, not just the minimum. Thanks in advance, and have a wonderful day ^_^
Betta + anything else is always a tricky one. I had a betta with shrimps and he did’t attack them ever, so this might work, but I also got a betta with blue neon tetras in a 112l tank which did’t work at all because he was attacking them all the time. And galaxys are a lot more active than neon tetras! So if you want to go with a school of galaxys and a betta I would suggest 160l+, maybe even 200l+.
In my 50l tank I have a group of 8 galaxys right now, in a bigger tank I would go for a school of 20+ I think.
