1st job MD’ers…like the video for me. It helps more than you know!

The tank has new been setup for 5 weeks and is now getting to a much more “ecosystem” state. As you can see from the video, there is still a lot of waste being produced from the fish and decaying plant matter that is not being handled.

…bring in the shrimp. I’m starting with 10 shrimp and will add more each week. 30 is a good number really to get a proper colony going.

    Nice trimming and shrimps

  3. Pietraru Leonard on July 15, 2022 at 11:24 pm

    You should get more red cherry so they’ll start breeding. They are great in low maintenance tanks

  4. Fern Knoebel. on July 15, 2022 at 11:27 pm

    If I can do this, I wanna do it similar to how you did, and I wanna do it with natives.

  5. Carson Cook on July 15, 2022 at 11:28 pm

    Also after initial tank set up, how long should I wait before doing a water change? Sorry I’m a novice in the hobby

  6. sarthak pyne on July 15, 2022 at 11:28 pm

    I like the swampy look in the tank. It’s looking more interesting than previous. Keep it upπŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜„

  14. Arkenuh on July 15, 2022 at 11:39 pm

    Ok but how does it lack any surface biofilm?

    Really beautiful tank!! I love it! Do you have a list of the plants that you used? I’m not familiar with the english names, so I also didn’t get those you mentioned in the video.

  17. Gaina on July 15, 2022 at 11:43 pm

    It looks vrry natural, I like it. 😊 Algae used to freak me out, but now I’m more relaxed about it – as long as my water parameters are OK, I just make sure the front glass is clean. 😊

  18. PJJ on July 15, 2022 at 11:43 pm

    Your tanks are awesome mate! Your vid’s are nearly always good and your approach is spot on! . It’s been good watching you develop your skills and artistry over the last couple of years!. Nice one!

  19. Monjurul Abadin on July 15, 2022 at 11:45 pm

    Bro please make diy co2

  20. Plant yourself on July 15, 2022 at 11:47 pm

    That little snail that you just shown in the fish tank on the end of the vid it’s a invasive species snail. it can easily grow and proliferate in your fish tank and beyond that it can transmit a disease called bilharzia! That is a danger in contact with the human skin!

  21. Joschis kleine Reptilien und Pflanzenwelt on July 15, 2022 at 11:48 pm

    very nice Tank πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

  27. Ralph Grunewald on July 15, 2022 at 11:54 pm

    It’s just wonderful to see what you can achieve with a no frills, no fuss, no stainless steel this, no expensive that approach. Not that these approaches are in competition, but you really transpire a can-do attitude that’s great for the hobby. Would you at some point share your water parameters? I would be curious.

  30. rahul ajayan on July 15, 2022 at 11:57 pm

    Can you please list the plants which can be used in such a setup where they can grow submerged as well as emersed.

    Beautiful natural scape . Excellent job .Love tanks like this, in fact am going at it soon.

    another MD classic cheers

  34. Albert P on July 16, 2022 at 12:04 am

    Like the end result, for my personal taste I think needs something small against the back glass on the open area, a lobelia cardinalis, or Beatiful rock with some pinnatifida or buce or fern or anubia something like that

  35. Mark Abad on July 16, 2022 at 12:04 am

    I love your videos bro. keep it up

  36. My underwater world (Dharminder singh ) on July 16, 2022 at 12:04 am

    I love it your tanks are awesome!!

  38. Marci Dehm on July 16, 2022 at 12:10 am

    Love this! I keep natural tanks myself but nothing as lovely as yours. I have to say I’m so impressed with the quality of your videos too. I’ve been subscribed for sometime and watching for longer. You just keep getting better and better in quality. I’d say you’re at the professional level now. Thank you for all of your hard work and sharing with us!

  39. TheDeadYoshi on July 16, 2022 at 12:12 am

    Really appreciate this channel and the lack of drama. No thumbnails with β€œDEAD” to get those clicks. No rants or apologies or calling people out over things.

    It’s all about the art of what you’re doing and the health and wellbeing of your animals.

    Keep it up fella πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

    How long should you wait for tap water to dechlorinate for a water change?

  41. Bryan Rezendez on July 16, 2022 at 12:12 am

    OMFG shrimp puritans heads are exploding right now lol.

  42. Adharsh Vishnu on July 16, 2022 at 12:12 am

    Add some leaf litter and other botanicals

  43. The PredatorX on July 16, 2022 at 12:12 am

    You haven’t got any Algae It amazing

  44. PemboMassive on July 16, 2022 at 12:15 am

    I bought some hygrophila polysperma today after watching your videos

  45. No Rocket Science Build on July 16, 2022 at 12:17 am

    Don’t the snails escape?

  46. Flobaowski on July 16, 2022 at 12:17 am

    i started a similar tank like 3 weeks ago with wood reaching out of the water. it started to mold above the surface. can u tell me what went wrong? pls help…<3

  47. Annalee on July 16, 2022 at 12:18 am

    That gap in the middle and the dark background creates a sense of depth, correct? Yeah. I like it a lot! I would have drip acclimated the shrimp. They fare much better that way.

  48. sarthak pyne on July 16, 2022 at 12:20 am

    Where have you attached the Boston fern?

  49. Alison Origel on July 16, 2022 at 12:21 am

    Your tanks are so beautiful! I have 2 75’s, 10 & 2.7 gallon tanks. All planted. I use filters but hardly ever clean them because the plants do so much work.

  50. Steve T on July 16, 2022 at 12:22 am

    If it wasn’t for the health problems of the discus. I think these are ideal medium size fish. It’s a shame they don’t breed them that size and Mark your tank sted is looking great and the , Commentary is great too thanks.
