Very nice, were they cable ties (zip ties) that you used to fasten the plants to the driftwood?

Hi,

Thanks to all for the comments and compliments

I'm not the right person to give you the measures and discounts in mm that you need to give for the silicon. I just helped a friend when he joined all the pieces... I can tell you that we used a compressor to spread the silicon on the glass (to be uniform) and after we joined the pieces; we need to remove the exceeded silicon and remove the adhesive ribbon. It's all...

Yes... The Discus starts breeding 4 days after the setup. But don't forget, those discus belongs to my previous layout/aquarium. So, when I put them in this aquarium they already know the couples, they only need to choose their own space and territory. It's only a new space with different layout

Otherwise, it's brilliant, and I envy how you can make an Instant Amazonian Freshwater tank at will like that. It's sick! Excellent work, excellent work! And an excellent journal as well! Thank you!
You need to wait a little more... I didn't cover the wood; the plants didn't grow enough to show them!!! The background plant "Echinodorus palaefolius var. latifolius" will have 70/80cm tall and will be out of water, so all the plants/leaves that cover now the wood they will disappear.

That's some amazing driftwood. Where did you get it?
You can find it on some aquaristic online stores, the name is Red Moorwood.
Fortunately It appears sometimes were in Portugal in some local fishes stores.

Yes they are!
This time I used some thin cable ties to reduce some time to fasten the plants on the wood.
It is so easy and fast, you’ll reduce 80% of your time. You only need to be careful to not fasten so much to avoid the damage of rhizome.

Here it is the setup:

Size:130x50x60

Heater: 2x Hagen 200w
Temp: 28º

Substrate:
ELOS Bottom mineral
ELOS Terra Zero
ELOS Terra Small

CO2: ELOS REA30 + 2bps

Light: ELOS Aquaplanet II - 4x39w T5 (2x6.500k + 2x10.000k) + 2x 70w HQI (10.000k)

Fertelizers: ELOS Fase1, Fase2, K40 e Extra1

Plants:
Anubias barteri ''coffeefolia''
Anubias barteri var. nana
Cryptocoryne beckettii 'petchii'
Cryptocoryne x willisii
Echinodorus palaefolius var. latifolius
Echinodorus 'Ozelot'
Echinodorus 'Rubin'
Echinodorus tenellus
Microsorum pteropus 'Narrow'

Fish:
Symphysodon aequifasciatus axelrodi
Pitbull Pleco (LDA25) - Parotocinclus Jumbo

Hemigrammus rhodostomus
Mikrogeophagus ramirezi
