Planted Aquarium

Featuring live plants in your aquarium not only makes it more attractive, but is much healthier for your aquarium's inhabitants. Live plants provide your fish a natural food source with the ability to replenish. By far the biggest benefit that live plants provide for your aquarium is that they produce oxygen (O2) and absorb the carbon dioxide (CO2) and ammonia (NH3) that your fish generate. Live Plants(vedio) in your aquarium mimic the natural ecosystem, and may be one of the most beneficial ways to keep your fish healthy.

Plants provide shelter and security for the fish. Because they compete with algae for nutrients, they can help to reduce algae growth. Live plants enhance the appearance and provide a much more natural environment for the fish. By improving water quality and reducing stress, live plants are a great way to improve your fishes' health. Adding live plants, however, does not reduce the need for water changes. When selecting live plants, make sure that you select species that are truly submersible
When first beginning to use live plants in your aquarium, it is wise to choose a large amount of hardy species Once your aquarium is balanced, you can start including the more sensitive plant species.
Plant Selection & Placement Tips:
  • To create a natural-looking garden aquarium, add a broad variety of plant species. The visual effect is lush and beautiful.
  • While  foreground and background plants help define your composition, don't necessarily place only tall plants in back and short in front. Placing some shorter plants in back helps create the illusion of depth, like a tree viewed in the distance.
  • Don't forget the reds! A bold splash of a red against varied shades of green creates a dramatic visual focus. Red varieties of Ludwigia and Rotala  make great choices.
Aquascaping Tips

Caring for your maturing planted aquarium is both an art and a science. With the right technique and a creative eye, you too can enjoy the rewards of a beautifully sculpted garden. Here are some tips how:
  • Tall stem plants like Rotala Indica will begin to bend over at the surface if not pruned back. While this surface growth is ideal for bubble-nesting gouramis, it also shades the plants below from precious light.
  • Advantageous rooting plants can be pruned mid stem and replanted. Simply trim the bottom leaves of the cutting and place back into the substrate, using bendable plant weights if necessary to anchor. Replant with the same grouping for a fuller look, or experiment by interspersing these single cuttings among other established groupings.
  • Sometimes, a young plant that starts out looking fine in one location soon outgrows its space. To thin out, either cut and toss individual leaves or carefully pull out half the cluster by the roots and replant the extra in another location.
Regular pruning of tall background plants and the thinning out of mid- and foreground plants will provide your aquarium with a defined and clean composition. It's the hobbyist's pleasure to watch nature grow wild in this small world we tend to, always pruning, shaping, clipping, and replanting for new roots to take hold.

Neon Tedras Aquarium

Live Natural Planted Aquarium with Neon Tedras      
Tetras are members of the Characidae family that can be recognized by the adipose fin, a small rounded fin between the dorsal fin and tail. These fish have several bones that join the inner ear and swim bladder, which enhances the hearing of these colorful fish.Tetras are found primarily in the streams and rivers of South America and Africa. Most tetras are active schooling fish that work well in the peaceful community aquarium. It is ideal to keep six or more fish of the same species in the aquarium. Many different schools of tetras can be maintained in the aquarium providing a unique display of color.

Tetras do best in a well-planted aquarium with moderate lighting. Species such as the  Neon Tetra and Cardinal tetra are among the most popular of all freshwater fish, adding a touch of brilliance and social interaction to the community aquarium.
The Neon Tetra is often described as the jewel of the aquarium hobby. It is easy to see why it is one of the most popular freshwater tropical fish. With their iridescent blue bodies and bright red tails, Paracheirodon innesi creates an exciting splash of color in any aquarium, especially when kept in schools of six or more.
Native to the clear water streams of South America, the Neon Tetra (Vedio) prefers densely planted systems with plenty of low light areas to hide. To best recreate its natural habitat, place rocks and driftwood amongst the plants for added areas of refuge. However, the Neon Tetra will tend to swim or remain suspended in the water column in schools to create a breathtaking display of color. Extremely peaceful, the Neon Tetra should be kept with similarly non-aggressive tankmates of a similar size.

This member of the Characidae family thrives in slightly acidic water with stable water parameters. To breed Neon Tetras, separate a pair into a "breeding tank" with no lighting at first, and gradually increase lighting until spawning occurs. Water hardness should be less than 4 dH and live foods such as mosquito larvae are great inducers. Be sure to remove the adults after the eggs have been laid, as the adults will eat them. The eggs should hatch within 30 hours.
Neon Tetras will accept many small foods such as brine shrimp or daphnia, Freeze-dried bloodworms and tubix micro pellet food, and a high quality flake food.

Discus Aquarium

Discus originate in the mixed tropical waters of the Brazilian Amazon River of South America.The Amazon and its tributaries contain water described as either white, clear or black. It is in the areas where these waters "mix" that Discus(vedio)  are found.Today,the Discus is a favorite among experienced freshwater aquarists and does very well in planted aquariums.Because of their unique shape, temperament, and wide variety of beautiful colors, Discus Fish are considered to be the most desirable aquarium fish by many aquarists. Discus will often grow to be over 5" in diameter in an aquarium.Discus naturally live in water at a temperature of about 78 to 84 degrees F. with a pH of about 4.2 to 6 containing very little dissolved salt and minerals. Sometimes the pH is higher, but Discus prefer the warm rainwater of the rainforest.Discus eat small worms, crustaceans, insects, and some bits of plant matter. In aquariums it is best to feed them frozen or live brine shrimp, some frozen or live blood worms, and live Black Worms. Sometimes Discus will eat floating flake food, which is very beneficial.

Angle Fish Aquarium

The Angelfish is one of the most popular aquarium fish in the hobby, and is known by almost all fish keepers. Ideally suited to larger, moderately planted aquariums, angelfish can become prized specimens in the right environment. The name 'angelfish'relates to the fishes appearance rather than its nature, as being part of the cichlid family, its behaviour is sometimes far from angelic! Providing you are aware that angelfish can sometimes be a little aggressive, but not unmanageable, a pair or shoal of angelfish can make a great addition to a community aquarium. Although Angelfish are often recommended for planted aquariums, in the wild adults are usually found in areas with little vegetation and only the young fish, which form shoals, stick close to vegetated areas for protection. Re-creating roots and driftwood in a vertical fashion, using the majority of the aquariums height, creates an ideal environment, but if this is not possible, tall plants make a perfect substitution. Whilst sometimes referred to as a soft-water fish, natural conditions vary and angelfish can be kept in water with a pH ranging from 6 to 8. Hardness should ideally be between 5-15 dGH, and whilst angelfish can adapt to harder water, breeding may become more difficult. Angelfish also have a wider temperature range than some tropical fish, and can be kept anywhere between 24-30C (75-86F) Angelfish are natural predators, but they will become lazy if given a regular supply of food, so they will not usually harass smaller fish that they have been raised with. It is not wise however, to introduce small fish to an aquarium containing adult angels, since any unfamiliar fish small enough to eat will be quickly devoured. Whilst angelfish are not fussy eaters, and will readily eat dried foods, the addition of small meaty foods such as rich frozen or live foods like bloodworm will help to maintain ideal health, and even encourage spawning.

Since angelfish can easily grow to reach 15cm, and are natural predators, tiny fish are not good tank mates, but most medium sized and peaceful fish will mix well with angels. As mentioned earlier, aggression in angelfish is normally directed towards other angels, but in case of spawning activity, it is wise to make sure the aquarium has plenty of space, and that tank mates do not include any overly delicate fish of a similar shape. A single pair of angelfish can be kept in an aquarium measuring 75cm (2.5 feet) long, providing the aquarium is tall (45-60cm) and very lightly stocked. Otherwise, a 120cm (4 feet) long aquarium is a minimum size for two adult pairs to allow sufficient space in case of spawning. Angels are hardy species, but many fish keepers have had losses when introducing angels to new aquariums, so avoid introducing the fish to aquariums less than two or three months old. Otherwise, the angelfish is a fish full of character and should make a good addition to any reasonably sized community aquarium.

Chiclid Aquarium

Cichlids are a diverse group of fish often referred to as South or Central American Cichlids.American Cichlids are a hardy, easy to care for fish species that add brilliant color to the freshwater aquarium. Cichlids have become popular as aquarium species since it is such a large and diverse family. Virtually every aquarist can find a cichlid suitable for his or her experience level, aquarium size and preferences. Even a small 10 gallon aquarium can house some of the smaller cichlids with a minimum of equipment. Cichlids are not only beautiful to look at, they will also show a long range of fascination behaviours if they are kept in suitable aquarium where they can display their natural habits. Many cichlid keepers insist that their cichlids all develop different personalities and characteristics, just like a dog or a cat would. Another reason behind the cichlid's popularity is the fact that many species can be successfully bred in aquariums. Cichlids are caring parents and will care four there young. Depending on species, the male, the female or both parents will care for egg and/or fry- sometimes even by letting the offspring grow up inside the mouth of a parent!

The smallest cichlids, such as Apistrogramma cichlids, grow no larger than 3 centimetres, while the largest cichlids, e.g. Boulengerochromis cichlids, can exceed one metre. The body shapes of the cichlid species include everything from very compressed bodies to extremely elongated ones. Some shared characteristics are the distinctive shape of one of the otoliths (a calcium carbonate structure located in the inner ear of the fish) and fact teeth are found in both the upper and the lower jaw, as well as in the throat. Unlike all other known fish, except the damselfish, the cichlids have just one single nostril. Cichlids also differ from other fish by their small intestine that exits the stomach from the left side instead of the right side. 

Aquarists commonly divide the popular aquarium species into three main groups: American cichlids, African cichlids and Asian cichlids. The first group is often divided into four sub-categories: Large cichlids (e.g. Eartheaters and Heroines), Convict cichlids, Dwarf cichlids and Other cichlids. The group "other cichlids" contains two very popular cichlids-Angelfish and Discus. The African cichlid group is made up by Rift Valley cichlids, Tilapias and Other African cichlids. The Rift Valley cichlids are separated into four groups depending on their native home: Lake Malawi cichlids, Lake Tanganyika cichlids, Lake Victoria cichlids, and cichlids from Lake Rudolph and other rift valley cichlids.

Vasthu Feng Shui Aquarium

Vastu means the dwelling of humans & Gods. Vaastu shastra is an ancient science which helps one to get the natural benefits freely offered by the five basic elements of the universe in which we all live. These basic elements are Akash (SKY), Prithvi (EARTH), Paani (WATER), Agni (FIRE), and Vayu (WIND). Vastu Shastra can be applied by keeping in harmony with these basic five elements of nature.

Feng shui aquariums are a beautiful and potent feng shui cure  to attract the energy of wealth and abundance. Placed right, and taken care of wisely, they will amplify the energy in any home or office and attract more Wealth  
Aquariums are auspicious because they bring a harmonious combination of several wealth attracting feng shui factors, as well as a perfect balance of all 5 feng shui elements.In feng shui terms, moving water brings prosperity and good luck to the home. Water fountains and aquariums are great feng shui enhancements because they are at the same time soothing and energizing. The sound and motion of gurgling water activates chi and adds humidity to a dry room, helping to balance chi. Moving water gets things going when the chi has been stagnant for a while (think of ice melting in the spring). Use moving water cures anywhere you want to enhance water or wood energy.  Aquariums are beneficial to place in the North, East and North-East of living room. The faults related to north-west corner can be corrected by putting an aquarium.

Arowana are rare and noble fish that bear a close resemblance to the traditional Dragon of Ancient china. It is believed to be auspicious and symbolises strength, prosperity, luck and wealth - and provides any aquarist with good Feng Shui. Re nown across Asia for their symbol of wealth, these fish have a life span in excess of 20 years, and are a beautiful investment for the perfect tank.
        The value of the fish is determined by a number of factors:
Colour the definition and contrast of the colour increases the value, the more unusual combination and the more striking the colours the greater the value.
Depth of colour, the more of the body that is coloured the greater the value.
Dimensions, as always the proportions and size of the fish effect the value.
Blemishes, sunburn, marks, cuts, bites etc reduce the price of the fish.
The Asian Arowana is considered auspicious by many, as well as being a symbol of wealth and stature. They embody several Feng Sui concepts of the Dragon complemented by Water bringing luck and tranquillity to the owner.

The Dragon Fish in Feng Sui
The Fish itself has a number of characteristics that fit within the principals of Feng Sui. The large scales and their colouring of Red or Golden demonstrate the existence of wealth and success. Being such a noble and dominant fish it also presents the character of strength and success which can be reflected on the owner. The large mouth that only collects food from the surface show how the fish can engulf success from above and draw it in for the owner.

Water is a place where chi gathers, it is naturally a source of yin energy containing an "auspicious" fish such as an Arowana e balances the yang and helps to dispel any negative energy in the household or office.

Also because the fish is so naturally effected by magnetic fields it is in keeping with the feng sui principals also based around the worlds magnetism and polarities.
&&&&&&&&&&
The Flower Horn fish is considered by the Chinese as the most auspicious fish that is developed by aquarists to date (much to the frowns of many Western purists). Its every characteristic is somehow related to prosperity, health and wealth, to the owners of the fish, of course! The nuchal hump, the colour, the aggression, the so-called "pearls", etc is much sought after. For the bigger, the brighter or more active fish believes to tell directly on the owner's level of abundance. So, how do you select the best fish?
Forehead:
The forehead or "Nuchal Hump" of the Flower Horn fish is the main focus of attraction of the Flower Horn fish and is much sought after. After all, the main reason (among others) that this fish is so popular is because of its unique feature: the head!
A fully developed forehead, which is round and tender, is a symbol of luck, prosperity, longevity and happiness. It enhances the glory of its owner. A huge and beautiful forehead that harmonizes with its body qualifies it to be a fish of choice.
Some even believe that as the head grows bigger and bigger, so does the level of prosperity to the owner! A fully developed forehead decorated with evenly spread red spots is more preferred. Such a forehead is called "li-zhi" forehead resembling the auspiscious Chinese fruit : Lychee!
The colour on the fish should be naturally pleasing yet intense enough to generate excitement. The more varied and intense the colours, the more outstanding the fish will be. The base colour of the fish should not be pale and dull.
Nowadays, the Flower Horn fish possess lots of shimmering/luminiscent scales or so-called "pearls". There are generally 2 colours on the "pearls": blue and green. Some "pearls" are by patches, like an armour and some are bright dots like stars in the sky. These "pearls" add more spectrum of colors and shine to the fish and is a considered a "must-have" on the latest Flower Horn fishes. The most auspiscious gem for generations of Chinese must be pearls, hence, the more "pearls" on the body of the fish, the better!
Among the numerous strains of flower horn, those which are most active or responsive to people are most interesting.
The Flower Horn fish is an aggressive and territorial type of fish and will chase away any intruder to its territory. Because of this nature, early owners of the fish started "playing" with their fishes by training their pet to follow their hands. This is done by gently swaying the hands OUTSIDE the tank and letting the fish follow the fingers. If this is done correctly, the fish can be trained to do "loop-the-loop" or "topsy-turvy"!
A healthy fish will naturally chase away any intruders to its territory and the more active the fish is, the more interesting it is to "play with it", thus the more form or responsiveness.
One of the many interesting aspects of the Flower Horn fish is the black horizontal markings on its body. Many early hobbyists have hit jackpots or strike lottos/lottery by buying the numbers supposedly seen on these black markings. What actually stemmed from a lucky play of imagination (just like imagining an animal-like figure from cloud formations) resulted in a belief system that the Flower Horn fish is auspiscous and brings luck to its owners.Some markings even resembles lucky Chinese characters and this fetch a very high price for its owner!
This belief still prevails till today, so most hobbyists regards that the more the black marking on the fish, the better. A general idea is that if the marking extends from the base of the tail to the middle of the fish's body, it is A grade. Anything lesser than that, is B grade or C. If the marking fully extends to its gill cover, the fish is of AA or double A quality. Sometimes there are verticle black markings that extends right up to the dorsal fins and that is called double-row marking. Some people do not like this because in their opinion, the fish is dark or "dirty" in colour.
Anyway, it is almost near impossible to find the perfect fish which is double A grade and have beautiful colours and big head. These types are considered show quality or competition level fish and is very rarely found. Most of the times, if the colour and the head of the fish is good, a good marking is oftentimes not necessarily a must-have

Marine Aquarium Scaping

A new trend in Aquarium keeping hobby for today's enthusiasts Marine life on a reefis very colorful and diverse. Building an artificial reef in your aquarium is not only veryexciting but is also a wonderful learning. An artificial reef is more than just a collection of colorful marine life. There is no doubt that marine aquariums can be incredibly spectacular. The range of brightly coloured saltwater fish and corals can be used to recreate amazing miniature reefs. Marine aquarists typically divide saltwater aquariums into those housing fish only, those housing fish with live rock, and those primarily designed to house corals
and other invertebrates (also known as reef aquariums). Many fish hobbyists also divide the types of saltwater tanks based on the water temperatures at which they are kept. Conditions have to mimic a natural reef in order for your Artificial Reef(Vedio) to thrive. Marine Fish are passionate and amazing to look at keeping the hobbyists as crazy over it as with its simple nature of attraction; its colour patterns, elegant swimming styles, hi-tech body shapes, and admirable behaviors remain distinguishing features over freshwater fish.

Fresh Water Aquascaping

There is nothing like the calming sound of water. The term aquascape is used to describe the aquarium hobby of arranging aquarium plants and other features such as rocks, driftwood, and other natural decorations and ornaments into a beautiful picture. There are endless ways to go about the task of  aquascaping(Vedio), but that's half the fun! Many people start by having a few random aquarium plants, but then get the urge to try to artfully arrange them into a more aesthetically pleasing view. Thus, the hobbyist becomes an aquarium aquascaper! Are you ready to start landscaping your fish tank? Just imagine tranforming your backyard into a natural paradise with a water garden, this not only creates lovely sounds but also attracts butterflies, birds, and pond life. Whether you have a large yard or a small balcony, you can enjoy the beautiful sights and sounds of a water feature. Let your imagination run wild as you envision how to integrate a water garden into your outdoor space. Picture an arched redwood bridge over a gently moving stream or water falling over natural-looking faux rocks. Imagine water lilies blooming in your garden pond, goldfish swimming around, and frogs jumping from lily pad to lily pad. Your water garden will give you and your guests hours of relaxation and pleasure. You won't have to invite people over; they'll be inviting themselves over to sit by your pond and watch the natural world as it passes by. 
A Dutch style aquascape is a lush arrangement of plants, often containing a diverse arrangement of leaf colours, sizes and textures. This can be compared to how terrestrial plants are shown in a flower garden and is immediately striking to the beholder. This style attempts to emphasize plants situated at difference heights and on different terraces in the tank. When a strong contrast is used, such as a prominent red leaves with green, this can be exceptionally striking. Particularly, this style of aquascape may be useful to consider if you are keeping an aquarium where 80% or more of the bottom of the tank will be covered with plants. Dutch aquascapes also feature more colorful aquatic plants. They can be likened to a well kept garden, where all the plants are arranged with a purpose and kept well trimmed and defined. It may not be the most natural looking, but it is extremely beautiful and visually interesting. A significant hardscape (rock and/or driftwood) is usually not present or visible. Color, contrast, and the beauty of the individual plants is paramount.
 
The Nature aquarium style was pioneered by Takashi Amano in the last decade. The style of this type of aquascape is very much focused on nature and imitating both natural landscapes and snapshots of natural environments. This means that a Nature style aquascape can look like a miniature version of a mountain range with tree lined slopes, or like a scene under the surface of a small river. Natural aquascaping is governed by a handful of principles in its mimicry of natural environments. Asymmetrical arrangements of plants are accompanied by carefully placed rocks, stones or driftwood. The Iwagumi system sets a series of rules which govern rock placement, where the main stone of the aquarium is located to the left or right of the aquarium's center. Plants with small leaves are often prominently displayed in this kind of tank and Java Moss, which is a good addition due to its ease of growth, is quite common. Freshwater shrimp and fish are frequently used to contrast the hardscape and to control algae. So if you are a person who loves the extremeties of nature why not own one in your aquarium now?
