Aquarium Garden DIY

The idea of aquarium garden goes back to the time when I was growing Aloe and Peace lily on top of my standard 10 gallon aquarium.
Guys! A pair of any size tanks, not just plastic boxes, bottles or jars, any tank can be used to make such an aquarium garden 🙂
You can pick up a lot of useful info on this matter in videos from my Aquarium Garden playlist:
DIY Planters:
I will show other plants in future videos.
Rotate the garden for each side to get enough light.
I use only indirect sunlight coming from the window.
No fertilizers, no heaters.
Just trim the moss and plants as necessary.
Have fun and happy aquarium gardening 🙂

Roxtar Towhid says:

can you plz tell us about planted tanks and best and easy growing under water plants??

max max says:

You can tell the stringier moss can grow in either water or on land because it changes form in different environments. There are a lot of Sphagnum and Fissidens species that can grow in either way a lot of the Sphagnums really appreciate an acidic environment though ,” think peat bog.” I really like your shows!

Have u tried breeding cyclops in their own aquarium not any seed shrimp

Prashant Chettri says:

Such a beautiful garden!

I recently got a freshwater crayfish and I am planning to make a self sustaining ecosystem for it.
I have made an aquarium out of glass which has a capacity of 5.55 gallons.

I also don’t have seed shrimps, daphnia which I feel is essential.

I have some apple snails and fresh water snails.

Please provide me some of your useful insights in making the ecosystem self sustainable and beautiful.

Michael you have outdone yourself. I can’t believe how beautiful those look.
And with things from around the house, incredible.
I will definitely be trying to make something similar to this, and of course I will be posting it on my Instagram if anyone is interested in seeing my aquariums check out @ Aqua_Pron
Thanks for the wonderful idea!
