THE LOG - Story of my amazing nature aquarium (Aquascaping tutorial)

New video after a long time. THE LOG is here.

Special thanks to Tropica and ONF to support THE LOG tank with their products!
Tropica provided the healthy plants and the soil.
I got the 2 piece of ONF FLAT ONE+ from ONF.

About the project:
Unfortunately there are a couple of problems - that I was hoping to get away with.
The flow is not even everywhere, there are some parts in the tank where the water is too still.
Thank god, algae barely shows.
I hope you liked this video and remember, if you find a nice piece of wood that gets you inspired, don't hesitate! Start building something beautiful. I believe natural things should be compatible with each other, no matter the source. Educate yourself, experiment and most importantly find much joy in this wonderful hobby.

    It's so lively to watch this whole video. The plants, stones, fishes, lighting, snail's and the way everything done from capturing the video, creating the script, shortlisting plants, subtitle fonts, music, slow motion capturing to final few secs of tips for us is superb dude.
    Just a suggestion. If possible please create a relaxing video by simply capturing this tank for 1 or 2 hour's and add those lovely beautiful music from ur list so during this lockdown time it will help us play it during bed time and sleep in a relaxed way 😊😍

    nice original aquarium designs. Obviously your log had no vermin. I guess fish like wood. They like to swim around in what they feel is natural. Some fish like to perch and rest on rocks and hide in caves, etc. It can make for beautiful design to enjoy and fish are happy too. Glad I found your station. I'm trying to find new aquarium channels and yours came up on my feed. I am wondering why there aren't more female aquarium keepers. We are out there but perhaps not on youtube.
    I enjoy aquariums now more since I started doing more water changes. For some reason though in the past all fish except my bettas would die. Just thought I'd spread a little cheer. Anyway, it's the truth. I think I did some radical things which made it my fault. I think I changed them up too fast so water parameters got messed up very quick and such. I also got fish (pygmy sunfish) that starved themselves because they refused to eat anything. They like live food but thought I could have them feeding them frozen. So my fault again. So many fish are listed as "hardy". Not even bettas are "hardy". I think I kept them in constant parameters more so and now I'm cleaning their tanks very regularly. I've switched them to 10 gal. and the larger ones and pairs are in 20 gallons. Much easier than 5 gallons or less. They need clean or else they get fungus and other terrible things. Learned the hard way. So anyone new like me....cleanliness and watching water wellness is work but fish love it.

    I can have a beautiful tank too if I were spending someone else's dime. So in other words they didn't do this tank themselves. Show us some real skill by using your own time and money and we might take this tank a little more serious because right now you're doing nothing but building someone else's design and not your own. That is nothing special until you've done it all on your own.
