I’ve started this little aquarium 11 months ago. I was planning to grow the plants out of the surface. In the first 3 months I used CO2 but I stopped to to after then. I was a bit lazy with this tank so the emersed section grew huge and formed a shady area where the plants died out. Only a few low demand ones survived. The aquarium became so natural this way, the fish love the shady places. Yes, it’s maybe not that gorgeous for our eyes like it used to be with the healthy plants but it’s just so natural for the fish, looks like their organic habitat. We can say I don’t really need to care about this tank, I just fill up the vaporized water and change a bit in every 2-3 weeks. I use my own fertilizer in weekly dosage. I’m so in love with it, really a piece of nature.

You are an artist at this–it's just beautiful! Do they last a long time? Do they need a lot of maintenance?

What is the tank dimension? Cool Aqua Scape.

You call it natural – I would call it overgrown %)

Probably my favorite of yours

ipkb says:

How did you do the emersed part? The plants are originally planted in the substrate or you have a raised part to plant it out of the water?
