Aquascaping – Aquarium Ideas from The Art of the Planted Aquarium 2011, part 1


Best planted aquariums arranged for the aquascaping contest “The Art of the Planted Aquarium”. Dimensions of aquariums are 100x50x50 cm, there are Eheim external filters and T5 fluorescent lamps used. No LED lighting used, becasue back then this type of aquarium illumination was not so popular as it is today. Neither CO2 supply systems nor aquarium plants fertilizers are used during the exhibition. There are aslo no fish in the aquariums, because they are forbidden by the rules of the contest. First, they could cause additional troubles, second, they would distract the viewers from admiring the aquascapes.

Rachel Hopewell says:

Suggestions for lighting? A friend said the best tip she ever got was to use a Lumiy Lightline LED desk lamp to really jump help the plants grow. Super bright LED lamp with very low running costs.

Umut Gömceli says:

Inspiring aquascaping, indeed however CO2 and fertz might not be there at the moment of the exhibition but likely they where there until the last moment. Otherwise you can not get these kind of vibrant plants with bubbles on. So i have to admit, statement of “no CO2, no fertz ” is misleading here. None of them gonna be effective at the time of exhibition, but obviously they have been effective for a while just not now.

how do you transport tanks to show without damaging them? I guess the answer is “carefully”.

I read your comment about fish not being allowed, but I can’t look at these beautiful tanks without expecting to see fish. Where is nature would you find such a lush aquatic environment with no fish?
