My mini aquatic world in a room

Postby Sumit K Sen » Fri Oct 16, 2015 12:44 pm

Hi Folks,
Some of you will know that I started a tiny 36x22x26cm tank exactly two months ago with the objective of maintaining an appealing slice of Nature which goes with the decor of a sitting area. In the course of the 2 months, the objective became slightly more complex - a micro snapshot of the world under water in an attractive package.
So this is not an attempt at scaping or growing a planted tank. It is the joy of maintaining something that looks natural - something like what I will see if I peek under the waters of a forest stream.
Here is the tank at 2 months. many of the plants are new tissue cultured stock and have begun to establish themselves - they will grow in the coming months and cover a portion of the rear glass. Most plants that I want are in, and if they grow as I want them to, I will have the job of maintaining them. The tank at this time has 4 Ember Tetras. I want to go up to 6 or 7 but embers are hard to find.
Lastly, a word of thanks to all those who stepped in and helped me through the last 2 months. You guys are wonderful.

Thanks Kumar. You are right, the Azoo does not reach across the tank. So there is a balancing light.

Dada, the FTS of the tank looks stunning! It's such a beauty this unkempt and looks like a slice of nature in a glass box. I personally have a taste for such natural layouts and so kudos to you and your efforts.

PS: You seem to be one of those magicians who can touch any stone and turn it into gold! You know what that we call it in bengali right? ;)
Cheers,

Thank you my friend. The only true magic in life is education. You can climb mountains if you can gather, absorb and assimilate the knowledge on many for your own use.
Cheers!
