A Two-Sided Live Planted Aquarium Layout

Another early live planted aquarium installation for ADG, this aquascape was composed inside of a standard production model 135 gallon aquarium (72in x 18in x 24in). The classic two-sided approach to the layout was used to maintain some open/negative space in the center, while allowing the the sides to grow densely over time. The fish selection was kept simple and using fishes that could easily live for many years in harmony with the aquascape. Routine aquarium maintenance is performed once per week, and after many years, the need for frequent fertilization has diminshed greatly as the amount of natural organic matter has built up to a point where a truly balanced, self-sustaining closed system has been acheieved.
