    Congrats Viktor, great video!
    Loved how you guided us through the trimming options and the search for aesthetic balance, as a whole.
    If I liked the tank before, I liked even better after the trim!
    You guys should be proud of all you've achieved so far, and all the vibe surrounding GreenAqua, not just locally but around the Aquascape world in general.
    I'm a fan since day #1 and wish you the best success possible for many years to come...
    Again super CONGRATS

      Thank you Luis for your continuous support. It means a lot to us and really motivational. The goal is to educate people on this beautiful hobby. Giving support for this learning curve. Makes the whole process enjoyable without the frustration of the problems. And of course, show how beautiful nature is.
      If you have any suggestion for future episodes or content what you would enjoy just let us know.

    Can you show a non pressurized CO2 aquascape?

    • Green Aqua
      Green Aqua  2 dni temu

      In our showroom and with our client installations we only work with pressurized systems. So i am afraid not. We do help many of our customers set up their non-co2 tanks, but our goal is different. We want to show the tanks and plants in the best possible form.

    Great video Viktor. You always provide a lot of information on your videos. Question, I have Riccia Fluitans, what's the difference between the Fluitans and Riccardia Chamedryfolia?

    • Green Aqua
      Green Aqua  17 dni temu

      Cheers Randy, thank you for your words. Riccia is like a weed. Means it is so low demanding that almost can grow in any tank. And as you pump up your light, CO2, and ferts this grows with a lightning speed so will be out of control shortly.
      Riccardia is a moss. Grows slowly. Has a different needs, but much more controllable. Personally, this moss is my fav one from all what i had in hand before. - Viktor

    Hello, I'm using a eheim Prof 4+ 600, I have noticed you use seachem matrix and purigen and I'm thinking about switching to that. How much of each media and in what baskets in the filter would you suggest me to place these items.
    Also, I love your videos and keep them coming so we all can learn from you

      Thank you Daniel 👍🍀 For model 600 around 4L Matrix needed. And 100ml Purigen for every 100L water. Just fill in all baskets with Matrix and put Purigen in bag on top of that.

  • Michał Wiernicki
    Michał Wiernicki 21 dzień temu

    How high are the lights above the water surface? Is it about 30-40 cm? What do you think about a trade off between the hight and the amount of light reaching the bottom of the tank?

    • Michał Wiernicki
      Michał Wiernicki 21 dzień temu

      Thanks, great job :)

    • Green Aqua
      Green Aqua  21 dzień temu

      Usually around 30cm. We're using powerful lights over on our tanks to make sure we will not have problems on the bottom layer. This 30cm is still a good height to grow any light demanding plants on the carpet level in a dense form.

      Thank you. NO3 and PO4 is very low in these tanks because of the ADA fertilizers. 0-5ppm NO3 and no PO4.

    How much of your success growing plants is due to RO water do you think?Of course high CO2, good ferts and light play a large roll but still.

    • Green Aqua
      Green Aqua  22 dni temu

      RO water helps in many ways. Plants are having less stress overall. Also, need less CO2 and will find less algae issues also with soft water. This goes back again plant health. Healthier plants, fewer algae issues in general.

    Riccia should be banned from the hobby! It's up there with spirogyra as a nuisance.If I had your store I would not have it in stock or just sell it to the most experienced aquascapers. A beginner should never get this plant that is for sure.

    • Green Aqua
      Green Aqua  23 dni temu

      Yup that is true. Many people do not like it. For a beginner, this plant is a great experience. No need CO2 or high light to spread and thrive. You can attach this to a flat stone and build a carpet with that. Or make it to a rounded ball shape thing. Very easy to trim and shape it. Always throws bubbles. So i think this is something that gives instant success for the beginners. More advanced gardeners are not using this these days. Back in the age of Amano san, we've seen many wonderful tanks with this plant. But times fly and we do not use this anymore for the known reasons.

    why the external filter suction and discharge pipe fix in the same side ??? why itz not placed in opposite direction ??

    • Green Aqua
      Green Aqua  23 dni temu

      Not needed if your filter is powerful enough. This is something that is pretty overcomplicated in the past decades. You can place it almost anywhere if your filter has a good power to turn the water a couple times per hour and you do your maintenance task weekly.

    Do you have any general guideline for the amount of bio media to use in a planted tank like the one you gave about Purigen?
    Best regards

    • Green Aqua
      Green Aqua  23 dni temu

      Thank you :) We only use bio medium in our filters + chemicals. For a 240L tank 8-10L bio medium is something what is a general solution in our shop.

      Hydrocotyle will grow everywhere. No need to be planted. Some Hydrocotyle species goes out of the water too and shows beautiful form there, like Hydrocotyle maritima for example.

    • Green Aqua
      Green Aqua  24 dni temu +3

      Most of the plants would do well in low tech too. Maybe Hydrocotyle Tripartita is the only one which needs more and Hemianthus C. Cuba. But Anubias, Bucephalandra, Riccardia, Myriophyllum, Crypto, H. Pinnatifida, would be ok. May would use more Microsorum but the Trident version or the petite one in low tech.
