I love planted tanks and this is certainly one of the better ones I have seen.
Congratulations on this lovely tank and kudos for all the hard work.

You deserve a good pat on the back.

Thanks for sharing the photo.

Nice tank setup.

I am new here...what is ADA? Last time I checked it stood for American Dental Association...lol. How does that soil compare to others like laterite and flourite?

Guessing by your watts, that's a 55g tank (3w per gallon)?
Yeah, it round about 3w per gallon, but we did not follow the guide strictly, we gauge by observing plant growth.

Aqua Design Amano (ADA) is the brand of aquarium substrate and fertilizers that we use. Do visit us at ADA Singapore Site to understand the concept. There are planted and scaping tips available for download.

We will post more tanks soon.

Cheers

Takashi Amano is brilliant. His planted tanks and photos are truly amazing. For those of you that don't know of him, here is a link to some of his tanks:
