Just wanted to give you a heads up that the image of the plant you'll be receiving is just an example of what you can expect. Each plant is unique and may vary in size and shape, so it won't be an exact match to the photo. If we provide a size guide, keep in mind that it's just an estimate and that plants can vary in size depending on the time of year.
Our Delivery Promise to you
If you choose Express Delivery, we will replace any plants that are damaged due to delays. Express Delivery is a fast, trackable, and reliable option with a one hour delivery window. It also ensures that the plants will arrive in the same condition as when they left our facility. If you choose a different postage option, such as Tracked 24 or Tracked 48, you will not be covered for any damages due to delays and will assume the risk yourself if the plants do not arrive in good condition. Express Delivery includes an insurance policy, which may cost more but provides added peace of mind.
If you order before 4pm we dispatch the same working day (Mon-Fri). Shipping prices start at £4.99 depending on the speed of delivery required.
This aquarium belongs to a gentleman who retired from his daily work and wanted to replace his old-style fish tank with a modern nature aquarium. Maintenance of the previous aquarium was very time-consuming and the constant battle with algae was very tiring, we, therefore, decided to make a complete rescape.
For the substrate, we choose to go with Tropica aquarium soil and small amounts of decorative sand, used in the foreground. Sand consists of a mixture of Dennerle Crystal Quartz sand and different variations of the sands from the hobby market. Stones were taken from a nearby mine which saved us a significant amount of money, due to the size of the tank and the fact that stones are one of the most expensive things in the hobby. For the hardscape, we chose 3 pcs. of red moor wood, mainly because this type of wood provides you with great details without too much effort.
The main goal of this rescape was to achieve a stable long-term nature aquarium with little to no maintenance required, on top of the routine water changes. That's why we went with plants in the easy and medium categories, focusing mainly on the easy ones. We also avoided stem plants, simply because easy-category stem plants require loads of trimming. We also set up a new easy maintenance routine, replacing the “bucket method” with the “hose, pump, bucket in the sink method”. The pump makes your maintenance routine quick and painless, I would highly recommend it to everyone with tanks above 60l.
You will also receive the hardscape materials in this plant collection and they are designed to be positioned as indicated in the diagram.
