Complements aquarium with crop, there is art there. Even design aquascape, its the term, like within reason makes design for garden. Aquascape can be ‘sugar’ in interior design.
Art to makes underwater garden (aquascape) lately becomes is popular and is new hobby for certain circle. Sees water crop in situation that is typical like a soaking garden has separate fascination. The limpid water and lamp reflection of light likely reflects having immeasurable foliage type wiggling soft along with smooth movement of current in aquarium. Differs from aquarium in general, aquascape is more majoring at treatment of the garden not to the fish. This thing is caused by not all compatible fish types is sited side by side with crop that is the numbers predominates contents of aquarium. There are fish types annoyed because plants growth and there also fish type that damages the plants, like goldfish type.
In principle presence of plants becomes part of balance of underwater ecosystem. Simply the relation of both explained as follows. Fish requires oxygen for the exhalation and releases carbon dioxide as ithe discard, on the contrary plants permeates the carbon dioxide as component of standard during photosynthesis process to be turned into food to build its body. The mutual profiting relationship runs in natural in nature. Other advantage, functioning plants as biofilter permeating dirt and fish urine that is by degrees can cause poison for growth of fish itself.
The water plants is planted like land plants, in grows media, in the form of quartz sand mixed with by fertilizer specially produced for aquascape. So that seen cleanness and tantalum plants in media to plant, surface of media is layered again with sand which cleanness still ( without fertilizer mixture) and surface of ground is made having contour so that seems to be dimension. Compiles plants in composition like within reason composition in garden. Measure, texture, character grows and color is compiled high gradation the low of so that seen dimension from every direction. Composition of plants also combinable with complement of hard matter from stone and wood which fossil has as ornament. Usage of reef for this freshwater aquarium is not suggested, because high chalk content from the reef can influence water quality causing negativity for plant growth.
Growing area in water is strived fulfill plants requirement. Requirement of light for example obtained through lamp focus which the quality looking like light natural. For aquascape, applied lamp fluorescent which is in the form of tube having some excellences, like economizing energy and light yielded flattens but doesn’t generate temperature. The weakness is limited intensity so that would be effective if placed at maximum height 60 cm from aquarium water level. For example is measure aquarium 70 x 70 x 60 cm ( height) applies illumination with power of 7000 Kelvin’s with capacities 150 watts flamed during 8 hour/day.
Underwater temperature taken care of not to exceed 26°C because moreover than that, can cause indisposed plants growth, even can death. To take care of water temperature need to be applied additional equipment that is chiller controlled which is functioning equal to Air Conditioned (AC) with portable system attributed through installation pipe. Carbon dioxide rate in water taken care of in condition of balance so that life process in water runs normal. To control its the rate use CO2 indicator, put down underwater. Discoloration at indicator shows content CO2 in possible water of its the rate is enough, more or less.
