I worked on building the "technology"
that will sink U R B A N AQUASCAPING
structures deep into the blue water.





























































I will be forced to build the Ario 4 'House'
again from glass cos' I found the solution
that already build not as good as I need.

Mean while at a parallel universe I share
Proto-Tipe development of an led light
for planted aquarium and hopefully it will
be ready within few weeks, we would like
(My friend and I) to think of that as a
solution that may be define by the term
U R B A N LED NATURAL GROW.

My other self is now working on the Aq'
cabinet and on automated water change
system that should help in maintenance.









As one can see there is more plenty
of work and I try to do my best here.






---------------------------------------------------
Continuation
---------------------------------------------------





1.

I completed the cabinet
plans and even deliver them
to an angel pro-carpenter.



2.

I completed the solution for
filling and emptying water.



3.

I ordered new LED fixture
for the rear light that will be
on the wall in order to create
'Light Table' effect at the back
of the aquarium.



4.

I completed the plants list
and gave the order to the one
plants shop that I truly trust.

‏Echinodorus Tenellus (lower part).
‏Cryptocoryne Parva (lower part).
‏Lilaeopsis Novae-Zelandiae (lower part).
‏Micranthemum Micranthemoides (lower part).
‏Crinum Calamistratum (pillars).
‏Anubias Barteri Var. Nana ('Pendulum Ball' & Petchii "Chair").



5.

I completed the fish list based
on the concept that will be called;
'Orange to Red and Vice Versa'.

Orange > Xiphophorus Hellerii / Swordtail / Red.
Red > Poecilia reticulata / Guppy / Rosa gold.



6.

Now in Progress - Ventilation solution
combined with a temperature controller.



7. Now in Progress - New U R B A N AQUASCAPING
elements that will be build again but now from glass.



8.

Enclosed Visuals.















9.

Here in Israel the project known as "PREGNANCY OF AN ELEPHANT"

I work on that project only at my free time and at the end of that
post it's about 14 months of pregnancy and there is still work 2 do.

Ladies & Gentlemans,
Dear members & friends,
Respected guests,


After 18 month of preparations in which
I had to lower my expectations to minimum
and make huge efforts expend my limits
boundaries a new aquarium was born.

Please allow me to share with you the results
of the initial set-up that includes general system
check up and very humble presentation of new
LED Light Fixture for planted aquarium.



Thank U for all the people that gave feedbacks
and my deep apology if I missed someone.





The envelope that I received.




The words that was written.




The first side.




The second side of the drawing that
my little daughter made for me.
