I like to share some of my aquarium pictures over the years. Since I post here,I'll not post my discus pictures.
1. Blackwater tank(WoodLands):
First I had a 2 feeter blackwater tank. That tank was decorated by driftwoods.For others I used IAL,sandy subastrate.In this tank my Apistogramma agassizi bred for a number of times.
Here is the tank specifications:
Tank dimension: 24-12-18
Fish: cardinal tetra,Apistogramma Agassizi double red,Apistogramma cacatuoides orange flash,otocinclus,Corydoras panda
Filtration: Tetra Expower 120
** This tank got 1st prize in Aquapetz Aquascaping Contest in 2012
Here are some more pictures of that tank and fishes:
In the mean while dismantled this tank to make a 4 feeter blackwater tank I rescaped this tank for few days.Here are the pictures:
2.Planted tank(Project Greenery):
Here I post my planted tank details.I always want to grow a bush of plants from very few plants(say 10 plants). Hence it takes time to mature this tank.Plus Kolkata is a very humid place.here normal humidity is 80% plus and temperature is over 35 degree Celsius.plus i don't have chiller in my tank.

Substrate: ADA Amazonia 1*9 liter,sand bank in foreground
dry layout materials:horn wood,driftwood,ADA ryuoh stone(around 2.5kg)
