#35: 648L Aquatic Garden SALAD BAR

Hendro West Jakarta, Indonesia


Nice healthy growth but the placement of plants seems a bit arbitrary. And while the big 'Rubin' is an impressive specimen it totally dominates the tank in its dead-center position.

It is certainly a salad bar! Very impressive list of plants. The rubin in the middle of the tank is an impressive specimin. Although the number of plants are impressive they could stand to be thinned out a little and pruned/shaped. Also the sword would be much nicer offset towards the left or right in the back of the tank and the foreground needs to mature. Nice looking tank.

Materials Couple of driftwoods, tied up with various kinds of java fern. I'm just using silica sand as my substrate, mix with dennerle, and aquabasis from jbl. Sometimes I inject those Jobe's spike into substrate.
Additional Information I add 1 teaspoonful of Potassium sulfate and 1/2 teaspoon of Magnesium sulfate at each water change, which done once in a week about 50%. I also use Tropica Master Grow and Azoo Plant Nutrients. My lights on for 10 hours each day and connected to a digital timer. I'm using high pressure tank for my CO2. It's a 5 kg tank.
