Starting my aquascape

Switch from saltwater tank to freshwater aquascape, it is definitely learning from the beginning again because of very different handling. The following is a summary of learning, may be useful for who want start setup aquascape. Aquascape is not much different from the aquarium in general, just more focused on plants, whereas animals only as a complement. Quite many choices of plants that can be put into aquarium and most of it's cheap. Such as most plants, plants for aquascpe also have various types of character, so we had to adjust to the treatment that we could do, the wrong treatment will make the plants stunted or even die, the most influential is the temperature (preferably 26-28 C) and level lighting.
Animals that are kept is certain the animals are peacemakers and do not eat the plants, even the most hobbyist included only animals that have a function in the aquarium, which is a favorite function of algae eaters.
Good lighting should be sufficient for the contents of aquarium, the amount of light can be reduced if you get the sunlight. In general the quality of lighting is divided into low light, medium light and high light.
Filtration on aquascape not complicated, it is easier than aquarium fish, because not many toxic substances are produced, even some of the elements required by plants, so the main function of the filter on the aquascape to clear up water and make water flow circulation.
Planting media is required is the basic fertilizer and silica sand, or using basic material specific for aquascape. Basic fertilizers usually used JBL or Aquasera, or it could be with other types, it is recommended to use a special fertilizer to aquascape, aquascape requirement are not the same as land plants in general. Sand for sand base should choose the size of 2-3 mm.


Basic fertilizer media is placed at the bottom of aquarium, then the next layer of sand approximately 5 cm, a layer of fertilizer should be covered with sand in order to avoid leaking of fertilizer that cancontaminate the whole aquarium.
Accessories also no need a lot, mostly aquascaper only add CO2to help the growth of plants, the CO2 can also be made yourself (DIY) with a relatively cheap price.
First day
Planting can be done at the time of filling the first water, fill the water about 10cm and start planting, after planting you can fill it up. For the beginning stage should choose plants that grow fast andeasy to life, as this plant is usually cheap, plant dense as possible, its main purpose to inhibit the growth of algae that often become obstacles in the beginning, after the plants begin to grow and less disruption of the algae, you can slowly change with plants that as you wish.
after 1 month
To maintain water quality, water replacement should be done regularly depending on the quality of water, is usually done 1-2 timesa month, but for the first month should be done as often as possible, 1-2 times a week, because the biological conditions inside the tankis still not stable.
