Place a 60cm-width Cube Garden
quietly on a Cube Cabinet.
Substrate is a place where aquatic plants spread their roots. Create an environment where plant roots have a symbiotic relationship with bacteria and microorganisms.
Organic compounds in the substrate are broken down into inorganic compounds, which will eventually be absorbed by aquatic plants through their roots. “Live substrate” means the substrate that is rich in bacteria having a symbiotic relationship with aquatic plant roots.
Make a Neat Substrate Line
Make a neat and straight substrate line. Avoid the front side from becoming too thick. Adding a slight slope from front to back gives an additional sense of depth to the layout.
Driftwood serves as a framework of the composition.
Place driftwood in a stable condition while considering a good right/left and front/back balance.There is no need to arrange driftwood in a complicated manner.
Making of Nature Aquarium aquascape, which recreates nature within an aquarium, starts with making up the composition. This process is done by placing driftwood and stones to form the overall balance and make the framework of the aquascape. After that, aquatic plants are chosen and planted. Decide your own layout composition and plant the aquatic plants of your choice – Nature Aquarium is to create “your original nature”, which is the only one in the world, in an aquarium.
The most difficult of the three basic compositions to achieve good balance. Balance between right and left open space is critical.
The most popular composition for the planted aquarium. Ensure some open space in the center.
Composition with wider open space at either the right or left side. Pay attention to the angle of the driftwood which constitutes the hypotenuse of a triangle.
To achieve elaborate planting of aquatic plants,
adequate preparation prior to planting and
the planting technique with Pinsettes are required.
Planting work will be easier if the water is poured to the level at which the substrate is barely covered with water. Doing this prevents aquatic plants from being buoyant and hands from getting wet.
Willow moss is an essential plant for any aquarium layout that uses driftwood. It is attached to the wood using Moss Cotton. The use of Riccia Line is recommended for attaching less epiphytic plants such as South American moss.
