Creating a Traditional Nature Aquarium Layout

Oct 29 2018 0 Comments co2 controsoil planted tank ultum nature systems

When you’re new to aquascaping and are looking to set up a new tank, it can be a bit difficult to know where to begin. Some of the most frequent questions I receive on my Instagram account @shrimpery run along the lines of: “what kind of CO2 setup do I need,” or “what kind of soil do you use?” Because I recently set up a new high tech aquarium in my UNS 60U aquarium, I figured that this would be a good opportunity to share my thought process during the setup, along with details about gear and materials used.

Quickscape - Westworld (45U / 9.3 Gallons)

New video featuring the 45U by Ultum Nature Systems. It's a 9.3 gallon tank. We are using Controsoil as our medium and Ohko Stones (dragonstone) as our hardscape material. The foreground plant is Monte Carlo with some dwarf hairgrass in the back. We began this as an emersed grow which explains the seran wrap. The seran wrap will help keep the tank nice and humid. After about a month we will be flooding this baby! Check back for the final video. For now, enjoy. :)
