Freshwater aquarium no. 7 - low-tech tank 60x40x30 cm

Location: Nature Aquarium Academy, Łódź, Poland, Age: about 2 years. Dimensions: 60x40x30 cm. Lighting: 2 x 24W fluorescent T5 Sylvania HO 865. Filtration: Eheim Classic 2213+ external filter. CO2 supply: n/a. Substrate: 5-year old ADA Aqua Soil Amazonia.

    This aquarium is arranged on the basis of 5-years old ADA Aqua Soil Amazonia substrate, which was taken from another tank. The layout is based only on Cryptocoryne sp. plants, which grow very well in such rich and old substrate. Aquarium can be classified as “almost low-tech” - although there is about 0.7W/L of light, there is no fertilization, no CO2 supply, and there are no water changes - only the evaporation losses are replenished. The necessary nutrition for aquatic plants is provided by a “herd” of White Pearl shrimps.
