The Gap, 112l, Day 2 after planting. 
All plants, except for the mayaca fluviatilis, are from the old tank — I’ll need to get the plants into shape over time and fill the top left corner. Otherwise it looks promising. 

This will not use pressurised CO2, so there’s less room to manoeuvre :D

Amazing! You’re so talented!!

This picture was taken during a water change…, but still, the tank quality is impressive! Great work on such a small space, Vladimír!

"GÉNESIS" Aquscaping by DendroAcua.

Compartimos la evolución de este paisaje acuático que tenemos expuesto en nuestra tienda.

Este pequeño acuario de tan solo 15l cumple 3 meses desde que realizamos su montaje. Para celebrarlo, quisimos convertir sus aguas transparentes, en lo que se denomina “Aguas negras” o “Aguas prietas”.

Al contrario de lo que muchos piensan, estas aguas teñidas de color “te” no están sucias.

Paradójicamente, estas aguas son en realidad más transparentes que las aguas “blancas” que todos conocemos. Esto ocurre debido a su baja carga de sedimentos y la baja concentración de nutrientes. 

Si analizaríamos el pH de estas aguas en su origen así como en este acuario, nos encontraríamos con un agua ácida con muy baja conductividad.

El color tan característico proviene de los taninos, ácidos húmicos, fenol y otros compuestos procedentes de la materia vegetal muerta que se acumula en los suelos de los bosques que rodean las aguas.

Este fenómeno se puede apreciar en zonas como los manglares, ciénagas y sabanas inundadas. 

Es nuestra admiración y respeto por la naturaleza que hizo que diéramos un paso más hacia la naturalidad en este acuario.

Tiñendo las aguas de “Génesis" de color ámbar, nos trasportamos a los ríos de nuestro mundo y observamos un fenómeno desconocido por muchos pero tan beneficioso para el ecosistema.

Esperemos que os guste tanto como a nosotros.

Saludos, DendroAcua.

Jellyfish Lake in Palau. Apparently the jellies have lost their ability to sting because of lack of predators in the lake and you can swim with them!

BUCKET LIST.

WAIT BUT THAT’S NOT EVEN THE COOLEST PART: These jellyfish carry small populations of algae inside their bodies and derive much of their nutrition from the sugars that the algae produce. The jellyfish follow the sun across the lake each day and rotate continuously, so that the algae are always getting maximum sunlight exposure for photosynthesis. Then at night they dive to deeper parts of the lake so the algae can absorb nitrogen. It’s one of the best examples of endosymbiosis in action and it’s KICKASS.

I’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO GO HERE I love jellies but they are scary dangerous EXCEPT THESE JELLIES they are cute squishes (but I think this area is protected now? tourism isn’t great for natural places we’ve learned dis)

Day 57 (December 10, 2013) Update

Glossostigma has really filled in in the foreground. A trim is due. Most of the stem plants have died back because the riparium plants are blocking out light.

The riparium plants are doing REALLY well, with the exception of Spathiphyllum sp.— it’s a really slow grower and it might mean the death of it since the plants around it are starting to block out its light. The Asclepias curassavica is already past 20 inches (51 cm) of height. I want to trim it back but it’s flowering right now and I wanted to see that first.

Update on the tank again:

HC is recovering well from that melt, and the staurogyne is getting there too. I could never get my downoi to grow very well on the side, so I moved it into that center portion where it will get much more light. It seems to be perking up, so hopefully I’ll have some nice full crowns there soon. I put the stauro on the left where the downoi was. And you can’t see them, but I’ve removed the wallichii and ludwigia cross for l. sphaerocarpa and l. senegalensis. They should add some really interesting gold and orange hues, which I think I’ve been missing.
