Hallo,

ich habe ein 180 Liter Juwel Vision und möchte dieses neu besetzen (Pflanzen/Fische). Über den Fischbesatz habe ich mich schon erkundigt. Nun geht es um die Pflanzen. Habe in den vergangenen Jahren mit Sicherheit viele Fehler gemacht und wurde teilweise auch "schlecht" beraten. Könnten Sie mir mitteilen, was bzw. wieviele Pflanzen ich benötige? Ich habe eine CO2-Anlage und einen Thermofilter im Becken. Bin begeistert von den Schauaquarien.

Mr. Knott,
Could there be any benefit to starting up a planted aquarium with just the substrate, beneficial bacteria inoculation, the filter and water, letting it cycle for 2 weeks to reduce ammonia and nitrites, then 2 weeks later draining the water low to make it easy to plant the tank, fill it back up and add immediately algae eating fish and shrimp? Could this perhaps prevent algae at startup or is it more work than helpful?

Kind Regards,
Brett Wildermuth
San Diego, CA USA

I never do this in this way, it is to complicated in my eyes. For me the most important making every 3 days after set up a waterchange of 30% (the first 3-4 weeks). This push up the biology and helps a lot.

Best wishes,

Oliver Knott

how long the nature soil last without losing its shape?

The main shape will be stabil, there are only some few percent the year (2-3%) you have natural abrasion.

Hello Oliver
Claudio I have purchased from Anubias rocks that you used for the preparations of aquariums to 'INTERZOO in 2010.
I wanted to find out whether input or limestone?
If they raise the value of KH?

best regards from italy Claudio Ferla
claudio.ferla @ gmail.com

If you use stone which contents a little bit calcium (like limestones) it is possible that they raise a little bit the KH. Especially when you use CO2. But it is a good puffer effect when you use NatureSoil.

Best wishes,

Oliver

Just today I've remade my 300 liter's tank. Thank you so much 4 your tip about filling ! I've covered the ground with newspapers and plastic film as well: water remains really clear, and bottom firm... It's a really simple and smart method, Thank you!
PS: only some Hemianthus C. went to float, how do you fix them,deeply?

When you plant the HC please try to plant the plant with about 2-3cm roots so this keeps the HC down.

Hallo Oliver
Was für eine HQI 70 Watt für mein Süßwasserbecken 55x55x55 können Sie mir empfehlen? In meinem großen Becken sind Brenner von ADA verbaut, leider nicht in 70 Watt zu kriegen. Ich weiß Elos bietet 10000k Brenner für 150 € an , hab ich noch nicht life gesehen, Preis Leistung ist auch fraglich.
vielen Dank im vorraus

Die Brenner gibt es leider nur in 150 Watt. Am Besten 7ßWatt Brenner mit einer Kelvin Temp. von 6.500 benutzen.

Zwischen all den Pflanzen ist so eine Tempelruine, du weisst nicht zufällig, wo man diese erwerben kann?

Falls du ne Antwort hast, wäre das genial, wenn nicht auch nicht schlimm danke im voraus

Hi Oliver,

Is there any chance to see all or some of your innovative design on Youtube ?
Do you have any special formula for amount of light required for a tank ? Thnks.

On Youtube, not yet, maybe in the future.
I dont have a special formula because of the light. I choose my plants when i know what kind of lightning i have over the tank. There must be 2 or 3 different kind of formulas, for plant which need low, medium and higher lightning. I my opinion.

Hallo Oliver.
Ich arbeite seit kurzem mit einem Herrn Marco Anton, der zuvor im Kölle Zoo in Münster beschäftigt war, zusammen. Ich hatte deinen Namen zum ersten mal gelesen bzw. gehört als ich im Internet von dem Wettbewerb auf der Messe in Hannover gelesen habe, habe mich nicht weiter dafür interessiert außer mir die Siegerbecken im Internet anzuschauen. Der Marco erzählte mir dann von dir genauer und da bin ich doch neugierig geworden und ich bin einfach sprachlos was deine Becken angeht vor allem die "Nano Extreme". Ein ganz ganz großes Lob von meiner Seite.

I really enjoyed your photos and your imagination.
Of course your layouts give me lots of hints for my design of my own aquarium.
I'd like to visit here often and to learn more about layout skills.

Hallo Oliver,

inspiriert durch Deine Aquarienbilder habe ich mir neulich eine Portion Urticularia mitgenommen-nur leider schwimmt es auf...wie befestigst Du das denn bis es festgewachsen ist? Erschwerend kommen auch noch meine Schleierschwänze dazu...
Liebe Grüße
Tina

In kleinen Portionen, mit 1-2cm Steinwolle an den Wurzeln, einpflanzen. Braucht etwas bis es richtig angewachsen ist, allerdings habe ich bedenken das die Schleierschwänze die geeigneten Fische für die Pflanzen sind...das wird nicht einfach.

Viele Grüße, Oliver Knott

Hallo Oliver
Die HQI von ADA sind top,die Investition lohnt sich auf jeden Fall, hast nicht zu viel versprochen. Habe mir den Aqua Care Dünger besorgt. Setzt Du zusätzlich noch Spurenelemente dem Wasser zu,wenn ja welche?

dank deiner hilfe hab ich das mit dem licht geregelt bekommen.
besten dank. aber eine frage noch.ich habe in dem 150 cm becken eine korrallia 2 strömungspumpe im betrieb,ist es besser,wegen den algen sie abzuschalten oder kann ich sie weiterlaufenlassen?
viele grüße schorsch

Also wenn Du nicht besondere strömungsliebende Pflanzen im Becken hast, dann würde ich die eher ausmachen. Normalerweise reicht die Pumpe des Filters in Pflanzenaquarien für die Wasserbewegung vollkommen aus.

die röhren sind tageslichtröhren und sind angegeben mit 14000 kelvin.
PH ist 7 und KH 5. die leuchte 150 aufsetz ähnlich arkadia.
leider ist es mir noch nicht gelungen 150 lange pflanzenlichtröhren in 35 watt zu bekommen.

Die Röhren solltest Du unbedingt austauschen. Schau mal bei Dennerle nach die haben jetzt neue T5 Amazon Day im Programm sind eigentlich ideal dafür und in so ziemlich allen Längen und Wattzahlen zu bekommen.

hallo oliver.
seit 4 monaten habe ich ein neues becken mit den maßen 150X40X45cm.
als beleuchtung habe ich 3X150 cm tageslichtröhren von 35 watt T5,aber langsam fangen die pflanzen zu veralgen.brenndauer des lichtes sind ca. 11std. wasserwerte sind alle in ordnung,gedüngt wird ferrdrakon.nun meine frage,kann das mit den algen am licht liegen.
mfg. hans-dieter reinhold

Welche Röhren (Kelvin) benutzen sie den über dem Becken? Je nach Algensorte und Bepflanzung hilft es das Licht zu reduzieren bzw. weiter nach oben zu hängen (wenn Hängelampe). Wie hoch ist den der CO² Gehalt bzw. PH/KH Wert?

Hallo Oliver
Habe mir die Brenner von ADA besorgt,netter Preis aber was solls.Bin schon gespannt aber muß noch auf das neue Becken warten. Nun noch eine Frage zur Düngung.Habe in meinem biherigen Becken Dünger von Dennerle benutzt Tages , Voll und Eisendünger, eingebracht nach Herstellerangaben und immer Algenprobleme, vorallem nach dem einbringen des Volldüngers bzw Eisendüngers im Zweiwochenrythmus zu kämpfen gehabt. Im neuen Becken möchte ich dieses vermeiden,Bitte um einige Tipp`s zur Dünergabe bei einer Neueinrichtung und nach der Einlaufphase sowie den Hersteller. Verwende Bodengrund mit Düngerzusatz , CO2 PH 6,8, KH 5 ,26°C, Bel. 2x150W
Gruß Torsten

Hallo Torsten,

versuche es auf jeden Fall mal mit Tagesdünger auch die Volldünger. Sehr gute Erfahrungen habe ich mit dem Neuen Tropica + Dünger gemacht. Ich fange meistens nach ca. 2 Wochen mit der Hälfte der empfohlenen Wochendüngung : 7 an. Was dann die tägliche Dosis ergibt. Natürlich auch immer zu empfehlen die Step Series von ADA incl. Brighty K und ECA.

Gratulation zu den ADA Brennern...die Besten HQI Brenner für Pflanzenbecken.

Hallo Oliver, erst mal riesengrossen Respekt. Wirlich tolle Arbeiten gibts von dir zu sehen....
Eine Frage: Wo bekomme ich die Buddha-Figuren her, die du bei deinen Einrichtungen verwendest.? Ich hab schon das Internet durchgeforstet, aber nichts passendes für mein Scubabay-AQ gefunden. Ich bin mir halt nie sicher wegen den Materialien,ob sie für Flora und Faune schädlich sind !!!!
Ich danke Ihnen sehr für ihre Antwort....

Die Buddha Figuren die ich verwende habe ich fast alle ausschließlich vom Kölle-Zoo. Bis jetzt hatte ich keinerlei Probleme mit den Wasserwerten. Am Unbedenklichsten sind die aus Sandstein da Wasserneutral. Mit einem leichten Säuretest kann man auch feststellen ob die Figuren aus Kalksstein sind, die würde ich dann eher meiden.

Hallo Oliver.Ich habe gesehen du hast gemacht mehrere afrikanische buntbarsche akvariums mit echte planzen,anubia,bolbitis,microsorum und andere arten ! Kann die planzen in solche akvarium viel zeit leben ?Ich frage ,weil ich kenne mehrere leute aus hier welche hat afrikanische buntbarsche aber immer die planzen sind gestorben oder gegessen ! Kannst du mir bitte deine meinung sagen ? Tut mir leid fur meine schlechte deutsche sprache !Viele grusse ! Adi Sandor ,Grosswardein, Rumanien

Wenn Du nicht so viel Licht über dem Aquarium hast dann kannst Du in solchen Becken ohne Probleme auf lange Zeit Javafarne und Anubia halten. Wichtig ist da diese schon festgewachsen sind auf einer Wurzel oder Stein.

1. Ada Aqua Soil is a long time is available that ,substrat laterite + gravel or sand ?
2. Ada aqua soil is available in dutch aquarium ,or aquarium dense planting?
3.If my setting a new aquarium you recomand 100% Ada Aqua soil amazonia

Das ist sehr verschieden...es kommt auf die Region an wo man wohnt.In meiner Gegend in Süddeutschland liegt die KH bei ca. 10 und die GH bei 16...in dem Fall muss man versuchen weicheres Wasser / bzw. Osmosewasser mit dem Leitungswasser zu vermischen.

Hey Oliver,

I was looking through some of your tanks and was really impressed with the growth and formation of each and one of your tanks. I know you've probably heard this countless times, but I really mean it!

I was wondering if you could help me out on how to grow my plants healthier, faster, and more beautiful. If you could, I would appreciate that so much!

How to keep plants sucessful it is very difficult to decribe...I only can show you my pictures that you can see how it can works and that have a examples how you can set up a layout. If you have questions please try to take part at one of the different internet forums, like one of the best: www.aquaticplantcentral.com

Hy Oliver ! Could you tell me please , in your opinion which size of gravel is the ideal for the plants and what are you doing when the temperature is too high (over 30 degrees ),in the summer ?

I think gravel with a size about 2-3mm was good for the most plants. Try to keep the temperature under 28 degrees for long time. In the summer about it is possible to keep the plant with 30-32 degress but not more than 1-2 weeks...after this time you have to cool the water till 28.

Hello Oliver, I have been a long time admirer of your aquascaping skills. I have been growing aquarium plants since I was eleven, and am now running a sucessful aquatic plant nursery that we are in the process of expanding. We have been offering aquarium plants online for over four years now. Our idea was to improve the quality of the aquarium plants being sold in the United States, as well as educating the hobbiest and especially the beginner in the "how to" of growing aquarium plants as well as the art of aquascaping. I would like to ask your permission to show your skills on our site, with due credits of course. For references I would refer you to Aquarium Design Group's Jeff S. Our site is www.freshwateraquariumplants.com. I feel that your photos would inspire many beginners to pursue aquascaping, not just planting. I never get tired of looking at your work, it is truly wonderful. Best Regards, Don Matakis

Thank you Don...and I wish you many many sucess for the US market. You have a big potential in your country...and with the Senske-Brothers one of the best aquarium designer in the world.

Hello Oliver!! I´m writting from Brazil and congratulations for you job man!! I wish I could do something like this someday. Listen, I´ve some question that I´d really appreciatte if you could answer it. When you use hemianthus callitrichoides on your tanks, which kind of lightning you use?? And how many watts per litre?? Do you add any fertilizer??

Hemianthus callitrichoides don`t need so much light...I use it with T8 and T5, but also with metal halide. I don`t care about watts per litre so I cant say you how much, but you can see I many of my tank I grow it with less light. Important was to add enough iron in the water, because the plant take the moste fertilzer over the water, and not over the ground.

Best regards to Brasil, Oliver Knott

Hope you answer it!! And we´re waiting for you here in Brazil to teach us some of your techniques!! Best regards...

i have read in some places that Metal halide lighting is essential for tanks deeper than 24 inches but in many of your tanks you are using T5 tube to great effect.
can you please explain.

It depends what kind of plants you want to grow...for example Cryptos and Microsorum don`t need so much light, also in very high tanks. Choose the right plants and you can use T5 lamps.

Hello Oliver

I've been coming to your website for some time now, and I must say, that I am very impressed with your work.

I've been trying to get Hemianthus Callitrichoides "Cuba" to grow in my own tank, but I can't seem to get it plantet right. I've been looking at your pictures, but I can't figure out if you leave some of the "wool" with the plant roots in it, when you put it into the substrate, or if you clean all the "wool" off, and just put a "lump" of the plant into the substrate. Could you please explain how you do it?

Thanks in advance.

Beautiful! Very nice selection and very interesting backgrounds and themes.
Great plant growth and algae control. Apart from C0 2 what foods dop you reccomend for plants. Understanding the fish are not fed and only small fish are normally used.
Very nice Altum angels though mine seem to want to eat everything.

I feed my plants with very different fertilizer...if it's possible I use daily fertilizer. If you have to much fish in the aquarium or use very substantial food you get more problem with to high nutrient content so you have to dose your fetilizer carefully, especialy the nitrogen parts. With a decent fish population you have more control about you water parameters.

Ich muss dir erstmal sagen das deine becken spitze aussehen.
Dann habe ich nocht 2 fragen :
1) Das 5400 L becken das du in Karlsruhe eingerichtest hast wie ist es beleuchtet ?
2) Die Pflanzen die du benutzt sehen ganz anders aus wie die die man im zoohandel bekommt (frischer, kleiner,besser geschützt). Konntest du uns einen Tipp geben wo man die in so einer Qualität bekommt ?

1: Mit T8 Beleuchtung um die 1300 Watt Gesamtleistung mit JBL Röhren.
2: Am Besten auf der Tropicaseite: www.tropica.com den nächsten Tropicahändler ausfindig machen. Und bei diesen Händler eine Extrabestellung aufgegeben, abholen wenn diesen angeliefert werden bevor sie in die Verkaufsanlage kommen. Dann hat man die beste Qualität...meiner Meinung nach weltweit.

Chris: Your tanks are very impressive.
I have been out of the hobby for several years now and I am wondering what substrate you would recommend. What do you think of Dupla's Laterite & fertilizer products? Thanks for your time. Chris, USA

I use Dupla many years ago. In this time it was one of the best products for planted aquariums. If you have the chance to use it, make it, it works. I prefer ADA substrate, when I have the chance to use it.

HI, Oliver
Your tanks are very impressive.
I have been out of the hobby for several years now and I am wondering what substrate you would recommend. What do you think of Dupla's Laterite & fertilizer products? Thanks for your time.

Hi Oliver,

I saw your "mega-tank" on the AGA website and I was greatly impressed by it.
I would also have a few questions concerning tanks of 2000+ liters.
If you could drop me a mail, that would be great!
Thanks and keep it all going!

Hallo Oliver,

Ich muss dir erstmal sagen das deine becken spitze aussehen.
Dann habe ich nocht 2 fragen :
1) Das 5400 L becken das du in Karlsruhe eingerichtest hast wie ist es beleuchtet ?
2) Die Pflanzen die du benutzt sehen ganz anders aus wie die die man im zoohandel bekommt (frischer, kleiner,besser geschützt). Konntest du uns einen Tipp geben wo man die in so einer Qualität bekommt ?

DANKE MFG Mike

Mr. Oliver Knott,

I am Aykut and from Turkey. I am a 24 year old-physically disabled person. Since I began to primary school, I have been interested in aquariums especially fresh water aquariums. Now I have got two tanks. I have kept a lot of fish. My plan is to set up a planted Discus aquarium to one of them that its dimension is 100((L) x 60(H) x 45(W) cm. In other tank (65x35x25cm) there are Malawi Cichlids.

First I met you while I was searching a subject that is planted aquariums on the internet. I feel that you are really good at planted aquariums. I decided what plants I can use in my tank. However I have not found some of plants that I am thinking. They are listed below:
1) Anubias barteri ''coffeeafolia''
2) Cryptocoryne blassi
3) Echinodorus tenellus
4) Echinodorus quadricostatus
5) Echinodorus latifolius

I will be the happiest person of the world, if you help me how I can get them. Have you got any recommendations before I set up my tank? I am looking forward your reply.

Hi Oliver,
I have just discovered your site and I spent hours looking at your fantastic aquascapes.
Guest 23-Sep-2005 07:41
Hallo Oliver,

eine generelle Frage zum Licht. Ich habe, nicht zuletzt aufgrund Deiner Ausführungen, neuerdings 4x54 T5 über 240L Becken (120x40x50). Schaltung: 1,5h 2x54, dann 8h 4x54, dann 1,5h 2x55. CO2 Zugabe über PH Controller (7,1 PH, 9° KH)

Alle Pflanzen (selbst Cryptcoryne wendtii brown !) sprudeln nach 3-4 Stunden und geben eine Menge Sauerstoff ab. Wachstum ist sehr gut. (Nur Sagittaria Platyphylla will nicht, aber vermutlich aufgrund der Härte).

Gibt es Deiner Meinung nach überhaupt die Situation zu viel Licht für ein Aquarium zu haben und hattest Du dabei je das Problem, dass Dein Sauerstoffwert zu hoch wird (-> algenfreundliches Klima !).

Gruß
Robert ( rfdistl@web.de )

P.S.: Wann gibt es das nächste Update mit dem neu eingerichteten Becken mit Pagode in Karlsruhe (500L), war dabei aber wohne ein wenig weiter weg (80km).

Hy Edward,

sorry for the late reply but I'am too busy at the moment.

Do you have a standard formula you use for fertilising your aquariums TMG/Hagen etc for micros and then add macro's seperately??
I don't have a standart formula for dose the fertilizer. It depends how the plants look and it was more a "feeling" dose. If I have add macro I dose it seperately. But mostly in the "high" lightning tank.

Do you use reverse osmosis water??
Yes very often. We have mostly very hard water in our region. I try to get a mix water (tabe/osmosis) with a KH about 4-6

In your opinion are heater cables required.
I have very good experience with cable heater, especially with plants like Echinodorus and Cryptos.

What is your preferred substrate.
For me personaly the best substrate are the AQUASOIL from ADA. Never saw a better and more healthy grow like in this soil. But also for me not ever available.

Do you use the "Barr" EI method for water changes.
Sorry I don't know the "Barr" EI method. Maybe you can tell me more about it.

Best regards,

Oliver Knott

Dear Hedson,

thank you for your praise. Yes I know Luis and his amazing tanks he made. He have really a green thump for aquatic plants. Do you know you can get Tropica plants also in Mexico, there are some few retailers how sell the plants. I wish you many luck and sucess with your planted tanks.

If you want to visit a place in Germany who you can see some of my tanks, I think the nearest locating was in the city Stuttgart (southern part of Germnay).

Cheega,

because of the toolkits there are only some twezzers you can get from other company (like JBL, Dennerle...) who are in a similar quality. But especially the scissors from ADA are very special and make the work in the aquarium much more easier. Also the quality is very good from all the ADA toolkits.

Best regards,

Hi Oliver,
Wonderful job indeed with the aquascaping! I am very impressed.

A question though, if you don't mind to answer...
I was wondering why you hardly use any polysterine backdrops (with the fake stones or rough textures)?

Personally, I do think they help make the tank a lot better. But your opinion on this would be very much appreciated, thanks!

Hi, Mr. Oliver!

I'm from Brasil, and Livio and Rony's friend. I've got these utricularias since september/04. They are just wonderful, and grows just like Eleocharis acicularis.

It's a nice foreground plant. As Livio said, the "utriculus" are just above the gravel... I can send you some pictures of them. Just tell me.

Best regards and Happy new Year (Akemashite Omedetou Gozaimasu)

I believe everyone must be in a hurry in this hollydays... So, don´t mind!!

About the new Utricularia, actually I don´t have much experience yet, since I have got one small bunch only two weeks ago - But it is really beautifull, and outside the gravel you can observe the typical "utriculus" around the base of he leaves. Hope I can tell you more a little later!

I told about your interest to a friend who got this plant for us. I believe he will contact you soon too

Best regards and happy new year!!

Hy Jordan,

I get the most plants directly from Tropica in Denmark. But for the people in the USA it was not possible at the moment because of the law. But for example at the auction in Washington AGA this year they sell many rare plants. I think this way was the best to get this kind of stem plants in the USA. Maybe you can buy Tropica plants in the future in the USA, I hope it for all the American Aquarium hobbiests.

Best regards,

I have a question about the 560liter tank you have. The one with all the cuba plants. I came across the plants on tropica and decided I loved them. I cannot find these anywhere in the United States. I bought everything I needed to keep these plants and cannot aquire them. Aquaplant.com has none. I have for lighting an ARO 220 ballast that runs two 110watt VHO bulbs with VHO endcaps. These bulbs are Trichromatic 6500k bulbs. I then have 2 6500k 40watt bulbs. These are all mounted in my canopy over a 75 gallon (285liter) tank giving me 300watts total of 6500k light.

Anyways, I want to know if you could help me going about finding these plants or where you get yours from. I also would love to see a plant arrangement photo. Like a pic telling where everything is located as I have trouble identifying some plants and want to know what is where. I would really apreciate any help if its not a hassle and thank you in advance.

Als aller erstes mal "Respekt", selten so geniale Sachen gesehen.

Mich würde interessieren, ob Du Nährboden verwendest, etwa Dennerle oder JBL ?
Wenn ja, in welchem verhältnis steht das zum eingebrachten Bodengrund ?

Gibt es von Deiner seite "Vorlagen" wie bei z.B. Dennerle für Beckeneinrichtungen ?
Ich würde mir gerne einen Raumteiler aufbauen ( Beckenmaße 100x70x50 l/b/h) da fehlt es in Deiner Gallerie an Beispielen, hättest Du da evtl. ein paar Ideen ? Natürlich nur, wenn es die Zeit zu läßt, sollte in die richtung Süd Amerika gehen ( Apistogramma etc. ). Andersherum, ich baue das becken auf und schicke dir die Bilder und du sagst, ob und vorallem was man verändern/verbessern kann :-D

Danke und nochmals, SUPER GROßES LOB

Hello Oliver,

Following your updates with pleasure!
I too have "nature" aquariums.

But please tell me the reason for this (ADA traning day's 2) :
"when the light is switch off the CO² goes out and a airpump start automaticaly over the special time switch sytem."

What is the advantage of this?

Keep up the good work!

Hy Adi,

I think the JBL tubes are ok, I prefer the daylight tubes with a Kelvin about 6.500 but if haven't this I choose mostly the JBL's.

It is not easy to grow fast growing plant's together with low light plant's like Microsorum or Anubias. You must play a little bit with the light time I think 6-8 hour in the first time is ok, raise it after 3-4 weeks to a 8-10 and maximum to 11-12 hour. But this depends on the growing of you plants. Especially Gloosostigma and Rotala walichii need many light to grow very healthy.

I also prefer to switch of the CO² by Night and by day on.

Good experience I have with follow water parameters:
PH 6.80
KH 3-5
Nitrat: 8-10mg/l
Iron: about 0,1 mg/l

Good for fast growing plants: NPK fertilizer from Hagen
Good for Iron: E15 from Dennerle

Make your own experience, the most important for me are the water change. At the first 3 weeks every 3 day 30% after this every week 30%. And a sensible fish quantity.

Best regards,

Oliver

I trim the Riccia ball's inside the tank. The cutting material you can catch easy a the surface of the water with a net.

You must trim the Riccia weekly at the side if you don't want that they over grow the Hemianthus.

Adi 24-Sep-2004 10:08
Hallo Oliver!

Your work is really amaizing. I admire all your tanks, especially the Cuba tank. I am planing to set my new aquarium with 4x T5 tubes (2x JBL ULTRA SOLAR NATUR and 2x JBL ULTRA SOLAR TROPIC) I did not manage to get OSRAM lights, so I am asking if this kind of lights will be good for 385l aquarium with only 50 cm of height (140x55x50). The plants I will use will be Glossostigma, Microsorum pteropus (Narrow and Windelow), Anubias barteri var. nana, Eleocharis accicularis, Vesicularia Dubyana, Riccia fluitans, Monosolenium tenerum (Pellia), and for background Rotala sp. Green, Rotala nanjenshan, Rotala walichii and Rotala rotundifolia.

For first two/three weeks i thought leaving lights switched on for about 6-8 hours, and use of CO2 (3bubbles per second) with spiral diffuser. I also have EHEIM Thermofilter 2 2128 and substrate rich with Fe and other elements (JBL Florapol, Plantrit Flumon,... about 2 cm of height (enough?)) Should I turn on CO2 one hour before the lights, and turn them off one hour after the lights go down? After the cycling method will be finished I will slowly add fishes, shrimps,... Should I also get some fast growing stem plants or no need? How about fertilisers? Are you familiar with Seachem products? One more thing, should I start dosing with K, N, Fe, P,... shortly after first week or is it better to start immediately with small concentrations?

Thanks for your answer
Best regards

The emers growing from Hemianthus callitrichoides in this tank was only a pure chance.
In this tank I never put in any Hemi.calli., I think I bring in a small layer from Hemianthus with the swimming plants. And unnoticed the plant grow under the lighting cover.

Best regards,

Oliver

I think the light is enough, it is good.

Because of the algae try the snails: Neritina natalensis.

The reflector are made by a small company in Germany. Also good reflectors you can get from BRESSLEIN Germany.

Oliver

hi again oliver, thanks for the fast reply. i have a 100*50*50 tank with 4*39w t5 + 30w aquarelle+30w grolux. do u think its more then i need? i have good growth and hardly no algea but small dots on the front glass.
could u b more specific about the reflectors?
Oliver Knott the aqua creator25-Aug-2004 16:09
No that's not a mistake. In my experience you don't care about the high (tall) of the tank, if you a have a good lightning system. For example at this tank: The lamps (T5) lying quite near a the surface. At the lamps a installed a special kind of reflector, very very effective against the normal reflector you can buy at the shops. The T5 tubes from Osram daylight (Kelvin 6.500) are also very good.

Best regards,

Oliver Knott the aqua creator15-Aug-2004 19:02
Hy Tamara,

I don't set up this tank...or bulb...Ole Pedersen from Tropica are the inventor and designer of this wonderful small thing. But it is set up for long time.

It is for show...and for insperation...but only for few days.

Hy Tamara,

thanks very much and many greetings to all your Russian aquarium friends.

The big tanks at the ADA Aquarium Gallery are made with "White-Glass" and the glass thickness was 15mm. This was very important, you need very strong glass.

Best regards,

Hy Edwin,

very nice picture you make. Thanks very much !

I remember many tanks I help to set up at my visit in March. This is the first time I see the tanks after my visit, very interesting to see how they be shaping. Nice :-)

How was the trip and did you meet some of the ADA staff ?

The pictures r very inspiring.
Seeing there is ADA training, i was wondering if it is open to the public,
I am from Malaysia.
Apparently ADA products r not seen here.
I actually planning to plant a 4ft x 2ft x 2ft, I am looking for a few nice design i like.
But most of the pictures do not have the similar size, is there a reason why.

Thanks

Hy Tamara,

very nice, your greetings from the Urkraine. Thanks.

Yes I take part a the Layout Contest 2004, but I don't think I get a good place because I'am not satisfied with the picture of the tank. I try to make a special tank for the Contest in 2005.

Your second question about the color of the plants: Thats not easy to descripe. Many light and CO². The right ground for the plant. And playing sometimes a little bit with the different fertiliezer. Good experience for get the color at red plants I have with the Hagen NPK, the Brighty Special Lights and ECA from ADA (Amano).

Best regards,

Oliver Knott

Hallo Julia,

vielen Dank für Dein Lob.

Für den Besatz der Becken bin eigentlich nicht zuständig, habe aber einen Einfluß darauf. In das große Becken sollten auf jeden Fall Diskus rein. Wir haben die Erfahrung gemacht das "Wildfarbene" Diskus etwas empfindlicher sind. Meistens zwar nur in den ersten paar Wochen, aber wir konnten bei dieser Beckengröße kein Risiko eingehen. Wenn man in solchen Becken die Fische eventuell wieder rausfangen bzw. behandeln (Medikamente) muß wird es sehr schwierig. Aus dem Grund haben wir uns die sehr stabile rote Zuchform entschieden.

Viele Grüße,
Oliver Knott

Hallo Oliver!

Klasse Aquarien, habe schon alle in Suttgart angeschaut. Sehen wirklich klasse aus. Großes Lob. Leider lassen sich viele - wenn auch noch so hübsche - Bodendeckerpflanzen nicht mit meinen heißgeliebten Welsen vergesellschaften, die würden da kurzen Prozess machen und das ganze Grün in Null Komma nix wieder aus dem Weg räumen.

Könnte stundenlang vor dem gaaaaaanz großen Becken in Stuttgart stehen, aber ehrlichgesagt, den buddha der in dem becken sitzen soll.... hab ich.... irgendwie übersehen?! Schöner wäre das Becken nur wenn man nicht diese orangenen Diskus eingesetzt hätte. Wildfarben hätte viel besser gepasst. Oder wird das vorgeschrieben das du gerade nun diese Fische reinsetzen musst?

Grüße,

Julia

Thank´s for ansuwer my questions!

Coul´d you tell me the discripcion of the thanq - Showtank 160cm x 60cm x 60cm?

have a great year of 2004!!
Oliver Knott the aqua creator04-Jan-2004 20:42
Hy Rudi,

thank you for your message.

I love the low tech tanks too. Not so much light and very easy to take care. Unfortunately our water is to hard that I need even CO². Not so much but I need some.
When you have the right water condition you can grow this plant very good without CO².
The Bolbitis grow very well under water when you cut all the emers leaves, after few weeks new fresh underwater leaves grow out of the rhizom. Very good too, looks the Vesicularia spec. "Christmas Moos"...it comes from your region I think.

Best regards,
Oliver Knott
Oliver Knott the aqua creator04-Jan-2004 20:23
Hy Pedro,

thanks for your praise.

I try to answer your questions:

What sistem of Co2 you use or prefer?
I work with very different kinds of CO² sytems. In a good price and quality range are the sytems from JBL.

I have black algae in my anubias, and I don´t know how to erradicat-it!
In my experience the anubias grow better (without algae) under low light, in the corner of the tanks or under the stem plants in the shadow. Directly under the light you have more problems with this kind of algae, when the water conditions are not 100% optimal.

I see a mesage that you tel to change 20% of whater, is that enougth?
I change 20% of the water every week, sometimes more.

I have 1w of T5 per liter, in a thanq of 120L, do I need Co2?(I have only anubias and ricia -Tropica Flowars)
When you want to grow Riccia I think you need CO² absolutely. But it is dependent of you water conditions (hardness for example). You need much more luck when you not use CO².

Do I ned fertilizacion every day? my text tell-me that I have 0,4 ppm of Iron!!
I prefer a daily fertilizer. The plant need other trace elements too. Important Potassium in think.

Much greetings to Portugal,

Oliver Knott

Hallo Oliver,

ich schreibe ja normalerweise nicht in anderer Leute Gästebücher, aber ich denke hier muß man einfach mal ein gigantisches Lob aussprechen. Super Bilder, die Du da präsentierst ! Und ganz tolle Aquarien (ich habe einige auch schon live erlebt, z.B. im Kölle Zoo in Ludwigshafen das 130cm x 70cm x 70cm mit den Puntius denisonii - um ehrlich zu sein, ich komme in erster Linie wegen diesem Becken in den Laden). Mach bitte weiter so !
Es wäre schön, Du könntest auf auf Deiner Seite noch ein paar Infos zu Deiner Person, bzw. zum Pflegeaufwand der von Dir created aquas schreiben.

Gruß

Hi Anne,

I use the EOS 300D since 2 weeks and I need much more exprience with this camera. Before this I use the Kodak DX 3900 very easy using and good results (3.1 megapixel).

Greetings Oliver Knott
Anne 26-Nov-2003 08:13
What camera do you use for taking aquapics? How did you like eos 300D?
Oliver Knott the aqua creator10-Nov-2003 19:45
Hi Tom,

when I have the choise I would take the T5 tubes.

The best results you get when you put the tubes above the surface (near the surface). And every 10cm one T5 tube. With this lightning the plants get a very regular light. The growing is more healthy with this lamps, also the color fidelity is much better than under HQI lamps.

I use in the T5 tanks mostly daily fertilizer and and enough CO² (PH 6.80 - 7.00). But very important is to using the right fast-growing plants. Especialy in the first weeks.
And a weekly waterchange (20%).

Best results with T5 - Osram Lumilux Daylight de Luxe

Best regards,
Oliver Knott
Tom Aanensen 10-Nov-2003 13:55

Do you prefer T5 or HQI lightning. What about fertilising? No alges?
