Video Testimonial of Aqua Essentials

Chris was kind enough to leave a┬áVideo Testimonial of Aqua Essentials for us and we wanted to share it with you. I hope this type of testimonial gives you confidence when you order with us, you always know you’re getting the very best aquarium plants and other goods :)

Like all businesses we understand it can feel slightly risque particularly if you have had a bad experience before but this should help to diffuse any concern. We’ve got lots of other video testimonials so please have a look out for them too.

Primeval Forest Aquascape

They don’t come any bigger than this. Not only is this tank HUGE but it’s also scaped by the most famous Aquascaper in the world, Mr Takashi Amano – an inspiration for me and one of the reasons I became interested in planted aquariums.

To take on a tank of this size is tremendous – you would certainly want as much of it to be automated as possible such as water changes, and even better if you have others to maintain it for you. Nevertheless truly incredible don’t you think?

Aquascaping like a boss

This truly is an amazing aquascaped that has been finished to the very highest standard. Tropica have a great team of aquascapers working for them and I hope they are inspiring you.

Notice how the water is only about 2cm deep at the beginning – this is great advice for anyone as it makes working in a tank so much easier. As are using tweesers for planting up (fingers are cumbersome). Anyway I hope you enjoy.

have you seen our YouTube videos?

So I’m getting creative and producing high quality HD videos of our plants. This allows you (my lovely customers) to get a more in depth view of the plant you are currently admiring. And what better way to do this than a short clip.

Each one lasts about 90 seconds, and I’ve left a few notes on each plant for reference.

What do you think?

120cm tank aquascaping video

Here’s another cracking YouTube clip that I just have to share. I say this time and time again but ADG are just the best at these vids and their aquascaping is A1.

If you’re looking for inspiration then these guys should be your mentor. And don’t forget you can use any wood and rock combo to get the same effect. Be creative.

notice the 50% water change too. Take note peeps. Are you doing your 50% water change weekly?
