Hi Alberto, compliments your plants are astonishing!

Could you tell us the GH, KH and pH values?

You automatically change 75% of the water every week or every day?

I see that you don't use trace elements.
Your plant uptake these from the tap water?

Thank you

Hello Claudio

Thank you for your words.

The water in the aquarium has a GH = 10; KH = 5; pH = 6.7

The change is made from 75% a week.

I use Kelamix Complex at times. Tap water contains enough trace elements.

Best regards

Beautiful... I really like the effect you created with Ludwigia. However, Hydrocotyle is not necessary imo.

Hello ch3fb0yrdee

Thank you very much for your words.

In this aquarium moss plays a special mission to the fore.

I tip my hat to you. Looks as if you took a piece of Hui Cliff works from last years and added your own magic to it. Well Done!

I really like the effect of the cascading moss hills! How do manage to "train" (or maybe trim) it so that it looks neat but yet natural?

Hello Bunbuku.

The moss is attractive for several reasons: Good light conditions and nutrients and with careful pruning very often.

Filtration of the aquarium is very generous.

Hi Alberto.

I saw this wonderful aquarium in person and learn from Alberto and I can say that this aquarium is wonderful, by the careful, by the composition and by perfect stability over time (so long). There are few people who can do this three things at once.

Best regards

Apreciadísimo amigo Loren.

A mí me vas a permitir escribirte en español; nuestra lengua.

Desde aquí te doy las gracias por los elogios que vuelcas a este acuario, tan mío como tuyo.

Sabes que es un lecho muy mimado, con la suerte de obtener recompensas de él. Me siento muy satisfecho con este trabajo teniendo en cuenta la cantidad de limitaciones, sobre todo de espacio, que me presenta. De todos modos y teniendo en cuenta mi pasión por lograr longevidad con los acuarios, sigo manteniéndolo vivo y seguiré mientras me responda.

Un fuerte abrazo
Alberto Sosa

P.D. Parece que marcha lo que te comenté. Ya te contaré más detalles.
