wow that's beautiful, congratulations. You'll take pics for the contest? I've heard it is a difficult thing. Good lucky

Thank you! I've taken pictures from other tanks before. It takes patience and a lot of light. These pictures are all with normal light and only for forum purpose.

Looking good. A school of Altums would look super cool in there, but it would ruin the scale you have created. Fantastic scape! Keep working!

Please don't say that! I would love to have a school of altums in there and we've some beautiful F1's in the lfs I work. But it would ruin the scale indeed.

Stunning tank. This is exactly like what I want to do some day.

Do you have more details of your filtration setup? I am curious how the overflow/sump works with the CO2 injection.

Thank you very much!

I made some pictures for you. Overflof over the entire right side of the tank. Made of black glass. Bean Animal overflow to the room behind the aquarium where the sump is situated:





Water comes in on the left via 3x 50mm PVC, wet bean animal overflow minimizes CO2 loss, and it end below the surface of the water in the sump to minimize it even more. It gets heater in the first part, flows via 2 filter socks in the next where 100L biological filtration media and a few filter mats are placed. and the right end it gets pumped back up and CO2 is injected in the reactors. Nothing really special. Active carbon and purigen to clearify the water and home made ferts are dosed by the ARKA dosing pump.


Latest picture of the tank:



I entered a Dutch competition where they pay house visits, so the judge will come to my house next week to grade my tank. Looking forward!

Made an extreme HDR today, by making a picture during the day from the 'cabinet' and from the aquarium this night. A little photoshop (which I'm not good at) and this is the result:

You've solved one of the persistent problems of aquarium photography. And the ensemble looks wonderful!

Amazing filtration setup. Thanks for taking those pictures! Even with the design to minimize gas loss, do you find yourself having to inject more CO2 compared to other filtration methods?

Also I notice you have some Aponogeton. I'm guessing you hope they don't go dormant until after the contest pictures have been taking?

It looks a little too fake in my opinion, but all in all it gives a nice idea about how it looks in my living room.

You're welcome! I still think I loose more compared to an external filter. But having a sump with a reactor to dissolve CO2, or an open tank with an external filter and a diffusor, I don't know. I think the loss from a diffusor is larger than the loss from a sump.

About the Aponogeton, these are in my tank for over 1,5 year. I got three species, and I've had Ceratopteris and other plants that should go dormant in my tanks for years as well. I don't see how a plant could now it should go dormant in our tanks as long as you keep all water parameters the same all year round. I feel the trigger is missing although I don't even know what the trigger is. Perhaps temperature or the amount of light in nature. But does anybody ever experienced this is an aquarium? And even if it does one day, that's ok, as long as it isn't the day before a contest or something:P
