Live Planted Aquarium and Interior

The Aqua Design Amano (ADA) 90-H (90cm x 45cm x 60cm and about 60 gallons) was used in this residential reading room interior where a defined nature element was desired. A live planted aquarium suited the client needs perfectly, though the realities of routine trimming and pruning of the aquatic plants were a point that needed to be well understood going into it. The aquatic plants require trimming– some certainly more than others– and here a variety of stemmed plants were used which require a much higher trimming frequency. Routine aquarium maintenance on even a smaller live planted aquarium like this one can be challenging due to the demands and frequency. The client or hobbyist should be aware that such an aquascape will have period of down time between trimmings while the aquatic plants grow back.
