Absolutely impressive!!!! How to you keep it so clean and algae free with no top and so much sun? Do you ever get local fauna (animals, birds, insects) playing in it. Teriffic photography also.

Wow! Awesome!. I too am curious as to how you keep it algae free with all that sunlight. I live in the tropics and outdoor tanks are usually very green - with algae that is!!.

That's really amazing...I never saw a planted aquarium with a natural lightning in this condition.

Congratulation...from the cold Germany to the sunny Spain.

Best regards,

Well, iīm glad if you like my little pool Really is the most luxurious fountain from my sparrows and somes dragonfly !!

Jdinh04, the tank is on my yard, is not a public place, no problem.

More info more info... letīs me see....
substrate: below is a mix of older fine gravel, on top a few ctms, of Flourite (Seachem)
Co2: presurized at 24h. When the fish go up at the surface at breathe, then i take the phmeter and to keep this level only a tenths below. Now: ph 6,3
Fertilizer: well, just i have trying at low levels of No3. But in "standart" situations add everyday: N 2 ppm - P 0,03 ppm - K 3 ppm
Fe: 2-3 doses per week, but low levels.... about 0,03 ppm every doses.
Trace: very irregular, every 20-30 days add 1 ml Flourish.

The evaporation is bestial, everyday 5 lit.
the change of water in winter is minimo, 10 lit every week. In summer, when i use this water from the plantīs garden, i can change 10 lt. every day.

Fauna: 3 otocinclus - 12-15 Rasbora & Albonubes and a lot of snails.

As you can see, the maintenance is no-orden...
