wow! you clearly have patients and creativity. I'd have to think you probably had fish before? Or researched for a long time.Keep showing us(me) how it's going. I love cherry beer.

Thank U coralbandit,

That project is my first planted,
many many years ago when I was
teenager I had 50L apx' of guppies.

I do try 2do a lot of research since
there is a lot to learn in that field.

Wow.

Again, wow.

I would like to thank you for this golbali, it is clear that you have spent very large amounts of time and effort to make this happen. In the beginning, it looked somewhat strange to outside viewers, because we could not see the "vision" that you had. You turned that creative idea into reality, though, and it is breathtaking. It is so new and different and refreshing. I have never seen a project like this before! It is inspiring! Thank you for all of your hard work, and please keep it up! It is very interesting and looks beautiful. The combination of light and shadow (dark gravel), of plants and animals, it is just great. Thank you for sharing this living work of art with us.

Re: U R B A N AQUASCAPING - 300L Planted LowTech

Hi Chandavi

Thank U very much for all your warm & encouraging words.

It is very long journey but sometime very very frustrating,
and yes, it was not easy to fulfill all the tasks involved.

The system is stable now but the next bridge ahead is very
long and harsh, few month ago I have decided ‏to design
new fixture U R B A N LED NATURAL GROW (Prototype 02).

‏Just like the first one the new LED Light Fixture is also design
‏specially for planted aquarium and it is not an easy task.

‏The new LED Fixture is design 2B better for photosynthesis and
will push at least 3,000 clean luminous, I hope my friend will be
able to finish the building within 160 days since both of us here
‏working+families and are trying to find spare time for the project.

‏On the same road we also have a huge challenge in upgrading the
hardware/software of the new LED fixture, I assume that 5,500
clean luminous apx' (P.01+P.02) will make a change as for plants
grow pace, plants diverse and total look of U R B A N AQUASCAPING.

Meanwhile I just try to push the current light envelope and myself with
the 'Plants interweaving project', it's challenging and also interesting.


Thank U again.

I have been keeping a watchful eye on this build thread. At first, I wasn't quite sure where you were going with your tank. I then started seeing you piece your puzzle together. It looks amazing and its always nice to see someone put a spin on the typical and common. You did a great job! The glass pieces, the sculptures, the planting and fish. With much patience, hard work, *money*, and time, you pulled it off! Bravo!

Now on to the next tank PLEASE :D

Thank U very much Brian757,

For the record the project was time-consuming
much more than the money I needed in order
to complete all the tasks & challenges involved.

Re: U R B A N AQUASCAPING - 300L Planted LowTech

Thank you very much coralbandit.

As for LED brand; since my friend build the LED light fixture,
I don't know, but I understood that LED are from one of the
2-3 lead manufacturers that are in the industry nowdays.

As for the photo period; I use 'S' mode on the dile and take
many many photos with different exposure, I also move the
LED light fixture in order to create different light conditions.

Since I'm amateur photographer, for the last role I had to
take about 500 shots and from them I did the selection.

You're left-handed, aren't you?

LOL - I don't mean that in a bad way, at all - just that this is so over-the-top freaking creative, I'm in absolute awe. No one in their right mind wouldn't be inspired by this. It looks really, really aweseome. Nice job!!! And thanks for sharing.

Any ONE of your photos would make an awesome desktop background. I plan on stealing many, just fair warning.

Thanks again for sharing!!
