  1. Stunning!! Love it!! Thank you so much for sharing…. quick question, you used the Eheim surface skimmer but why don't you use the lily pipe inflow that comes with built-in surface skimmer instead?

  2. I like this kind of videos, please more of it!! Amazing quality and content 👍 I am happy to visit your gallery next spring!

  3. Hello guys, great video of a stunning tank! I'm really interested in your diy custom co2 reactor… Saw the bottles standing in the cabinet (in the 450 litres also).
    Could you guys show us a bit more of your system and maybe do a video on this topic?
    Keep up the good work, you do amazing things in your shop!
    Greetings from Holland

  4. Link to the DIY co2? Looking for a less expensive option for a new 55gallon setup that I'm about to start. Yes, there are lots of DIY videos out there, however, some of them seem to be unprofessional and may cause more harm than good. You guys seem like you know what youre doing! Beautiful tank; I hope to someday have a house full of masterpieces such as these.

  5. Great work! Do you always use the standard dose of ADA Brighty K and Mineral? Or increasing this up to 1.5- 2 times? Do you even make the ADA fertilizers dosage increase?

  6. It's lovely but a bit heavy and solid looking in the center. Hopefully the added red plants with a variety of texture will break up that solid mass of light green bulk. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Really well done it does look like a similar vision to Amano's tank. I think the fish are an excellent choice too, they really help with the imagery of a serene underwater world.

  8. Uau! There's so much to be said here…

    About de VIDEO:
    So cool! Balazs you're a natural… great presence, great hosting, great rythm, congrats! The editing and the music are to die for! [ I know how much love and work go in to that 😉 ] Overall, just BRUTAL is the word.

    About the TANK:
    Very inspiring and aspirational… the simplicity of plant choice and the flow of it's arrangement, the complementary presence of bigger fish, the architecture of the layout that immediately calls out Sensei Amano's signature, and the quality of general hardscape and all the hardware involved. So, so, up-scale… uau!
    Tonight I'll be dreaming about this one, for sure.
    Thanks for sharing in such detail.

    About our common source of INSPIRATION:
    As a Portuguese, I feel very humbled, blessed and honoured to have Sensei Takashi Amano’s ultimate project – FLORESTAS SUBMERSAS- present in my country’s capital Oceanarium
    It’s always a very fulfilling and inspiring visit, and we locals are most fortunate to have the opportunity to go see it very often
    I DO HOPE that projects similar to this, take shape all over the world!
    And of course that if Budapest ever finds the will and the means to make that happen, I wish you guys could lead such project as ambassadors of our underwater world.
    May you be so fortunate to find a sponsor with the same passion for Aquascaping and Nature Aquariums similar to ours…
    On that journey, I wish you the very best of luck! 🍀

    Absolutely AWSOME guys. Namaste. Peace. 🙏🏼⛩

  9. Love ur videos…. Good learning!!
    I have noticed curling on rotala rotundifolia leaves (the ones on the top). This occurred after a water change.. could it be because of the water falling on the leaves while filling the tank. They still appear curly, even today morning….

  10. loved your way of explanation n your experience…… hang on with you work….. n we r eagerly waiting for you nxt video……….

  11. hello to all the team green aqua
    your channel … my drug 🙂
    your work is precious and stimulates everyone's passion sharing with us congratulation
    I wonder if you follow the redfield ratio in your fertilization ?
    I have in my aquarium a plants growth in slow motion
    I think it's a limiting factor in water chemistry
    what do you think of my settings water ?

    • PH = 6.8
    • GH = 5
    • KH = 4
    • CO2 = 20 ppm (green drop checker)
    • FE = 0.1 ppm
    • MG = 6 ppm
    • K = 15 ppm
    • NO3 = 10 ppm
    • PO4 = 0 ppm

    Should I add PO4? i'm fear that the algae are coming

    Soil: ADA amazonia and additives
    light: 100W Led 7000K (no RGB)
    Aquarium: 100x50x50

    thank you for your vision and your advice soon ^ _ ^

  12. You offer really hig quality content and make me just want to visit Green Aqua! I really enjoy too how you keep Amanos work and phiolosophy living. I am kind of sad to never have met him in person, but as he said – the story will grow inside of you and me. I am absolutely sure it will.

  13. You did a great job of the trimming.
    I enjoyed watching this.
    Thank you for sharing, I left a like.
    The video was very well composed, great content.

  14. Sou português e tenho um aquário do qual gostaria de fazer algo, não muito grande tem de comprimento 90 cm, largura 35 cm, altura 45 cm que conselhos me dá.

  15. beautiful aquarium, like all of your company, are awesome, congratulations for the great work and dedication to planted aquariums. almost esquici and her hair is creeping down. lol

  16. Balazs I am a big fan now! You r one of the most underrated scapers in the world. Your presentation and comic timing is also fantastic! Keep up the absolutely masterclass work and congrats on creating this heaven on Earth for people like us!!

  17. Amano's books are truly amazing. I bought his books years ago.
    Today I am still looking at them with no regrets.

  18. Great job guys! How do you keep the plants so thick and green even several cm below the apical area? When I trim the stem plants I always have the exposed air roots and the leaves that remains thin and tend to yellow.

  19. This is an amazing tank guys. Well done I really like the more nature type aquarium.
    One question on the weeping moss. How do you get yours to look so neat? I had issues with the weeping moss not wanting to cling to the wood.

  20. This is the most beautiful tank I have yet to see 😍. I plan on scaping my 90 p to try to replicate it exactly. What would you recommend for my fertilizer regiment?

  21. This tank is amazing , i have watched this video several times… Does moss cotton works for riccardia chamedryfolia? Does riccardia roots on branches or need a permanent fix like riccia line?

  22. I looked almost all you movies, I really like it but I didnt see any movie for real beginners … I have tons of questions . Do I need RO for aquascaping?
    I would like to start with 90cm aqua , which filter size should I use for 600l?
    Could you make some movie about basics, how to prepare water , do I need to wait with fishes after start of tank, what to measure and how? Etc.etc.
    You are doing great job , I really like your videos

    Thanks
    Filip

  23. Do I need to turn on oxygen 24*7 ??? My aquarium water temperature stays 24 to 28 degree Celsius

  24. Thank you, beautiful! Can these Nature Aquariums be made so the Lilly pipes, CO2 pipes are not visible? I find all the pipe work distracting to the natural environment / aquascape.

  25. Not gonna lie. I enjoy looking at your version of the scape rather than Amanos. I do love Amano’s work though

  26. Why doesn't the soil "leak" through the rocks? Did you put any artificial barrier behind the rocks or did you manage to close any gaps with the rocks?

  27. Fantastic! Thank you for sharing. I have noticed a definite lack of videos on Youtube that show hobbyist how to trim plants. Please keep 'em coming! -Little Bobby
