Sep 24 2018 0 Comments bucephalandra plants video

Aquatic plant variants: There are so many ways to use aquatic plants in a planted tank. Some are planted directly into aquarium substrate, some are glued or tied to hardscape and some are simply stuffed into the cracks and crevices of aquarium driftwood or stones. What method works best will generally vary depending on the aquatic plant itself.

Guide to CO2 Equipment Needed for Planted Tank

Jan 17 2018 2 Comments beginner co2 tips video

CO2 and You! – Intro Pressurized CO2 We all learn that terrestrial plants absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen into the atmosphere. This is no different for aquatic plants. However, in an environment that is surrounded by water, carbon dioxide is harder to come by.  Carbon is needed by plants to create food. Photosynthesis is the process in which plants absorb carbon dioxide and solar energy to create glucose and oxygen. So naturally, the more carbon that a plant has access to, the faster the growth rate in conjunction with access to solar energy (light). The most common way to...

Quickscape - Westworld (45U / 9.3 Gallons)

Dec 14 2016 0 Comments Aquascapes beginner guide hardscape layout/styles video

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. :)
