My Underwater Garden Of Eden

A few months has passed since I replaced my aquarium. Quite pleased to see healthy fishes and plant life in the new setup. I sorta like promised my bro cutie that I will post an update on my new aquarium once everything has settled down.....


Front view ( Illuminated by 4 tubes of ESU MAX fluorescent tubes to produce artificial daylight to aid plant grow )


Stag horn fern



My favourite – The Marimo, a little round ball of moss that can grow to about 60 cm in its natural habitat



My 2 litre C02 system ( linked to a bubble counter ), timed to activate at 8 am and deactivate at 8 pm everyday. This system is used to assist in photosynthesis activities



Some of the occupants ( rainbow runners, runny nose, tetras, emperors, etc )



A Tetra barnd filtration system coupled to a C02 mixer at the outlet



I like to call these my little underwater Christmas trees

You may also notice specks of algae in some of the above pictures…that’s the result of switching on the lights for too long and putting in too much of fertilizers. Many more pics but will take up too much space...hope you guys enjoyed the viewing ( I kept my promise bro cutie ).

Looks like a very expensive hobby you got there but extremely nice (soothing/calming effect). My dad used to have one like that, but hor, my poor brother had to do all the cleaning and whatever noughts that come with having a huge aquarium!!

I suppose this will keep you out of mischieve! :P

Am very happy to say that my setup requires minimal maintenance...thats the beauty of technology. I need only change 20% of the water weekly. Still have some time for mischief...HAHAHHAHA
