1.5ft June 2008 rescape

I decided to rescape my 1.5ft tank. This time around, I would like to create grassy land with tree in the middle, inspired by "Filipe Oliveira" work on IAPLC 2007.

It already been 2 weeks but the wood have not sink yet as you can see from the rock on the braches. Spiky moss is start growing but 90% of Utricularia graminifolia melted. Probably because I squish it too hard durring the platting, it is fragile plant and easily breaks. The good thing is the one that left is start growing, can see couple of new leaves sprouting.

Tank Dimension (LxWxH): 45x30x36 (cm)
Lighting: 72 Watts

CO2: 2 bps
Flora: Utricularia graminifolia, Taxiphyllum sp. (Spiky moss)
Fauna: Danio margaritatus/Celestial Pearl Danio, Caridina cf. Babaulti var. Malayan (Malayan shrimp)
Substrate: ADA aquasoil Africana, Europet fine riversand


  1. Hi... Can i know where did you get the wood. Very nice look like tree...

  2. The tree was made from many different part glued together using epoxy.

  3. Means that i also can diy a tree. Sorry to ask a question. Where to buy epoxy...Thks

  4. Hardware shop :). Epoxy is the one that need to mix 2 gels. It does not necesary to be epoxy, other glue like super glue or Aquarium silicon glue can also be use. For super glue and epoxy, try to get something that save to glue broken plate or glass. If it is save for human, should be safe for Aquarium fauna.

  5. Im a newbie in planted tank. After read your journel at Aquatic Quotient n blog its really interesting. Ok i will try on silicon glue n nice to know u. My name at Aquatic Quotient is maleng... Thks a million bro...
