Flexibility is important.






Water cooling with P.C.S*

Here in Israel it's get hot in summer, the most common way
to cool the aq' water is by installing fans in the "hood" but the
disadvantage is huge evaporation that can rich up to 400 Liter
per one month and aquarium fridge is too expensive for me.


Curent situation: 27C.
We need: 26C.
Aquarium volume: 350 Liter.
Aquarium volume Net: 220 Liter.




Cooling body.




Cooling core.




Water fall down at 10C.




Water fall down from 1 mm holes.








The fusion show.




Analoge thermometer.



Color effects from the cooling core.



The streams touch aquarium water at 20C.




After one hour the result is 26c.






How P‪.‬C‪.‬S* works

Simple 2 liter Take Away box that is sitting on
the center glass shelf, to that box I add frozen
water from the home freezer and it's work.



P‪.‬C‪.‬S* = Primitive Cooling System.

Dosing with P.D.S*



‏Two syringes of 60mL‪.‬




‏One black office folder‪.‬




White plastic bag‪.‬




Cut one syringe‪.‬




Wrap the other syringe‪.‬




‏Glue the measurement scale‪ but with the ‬white plastic ‪ ‬
as the first layer so that the measurement will be clear‪.‬



‏After assembling it became clear that the first syringe
is unnecessary and uncomfortable so it much better to
create the measurement scale on the syringe itself‪.‬




Black hose.




‏Done and will be good for 12 dosing
of 5m‪L each, that is about 6 weeks.‬




System check just to be sure that aquarium water
won‪'‬t dilute the clean fertilization that in the syringe‪.‬






P‪.‬D‪.‬S* = Primitive Dosing System.

4 month after setup






Little fish that were found in the filter during maintenance
after 3 month form initial setup‪, my young daughter ask me‬
to keep them for a while in a separate space until they will
grow a bit‪,‬ after 2 weeks we put them back in the aquarium‪.‬

Water that were 15‪%‬ yellow because of the Lower substrate
(Peat) became only 5‪%‬ yellow after replacing the old and the
brown perlon with new and fresh one.

Treetop to the Stingri moss tree


Little cork.




Narrow mangrove.




Cut in order get three pieces.




Sharpen one side.








Glue to the cork.




Floating Checkup, the plan is to add to that
Flame Moss or Weeping Moss or Willow Moss
and together with the tube a tree will appear.

U R B A N LED NATURAL GROW
advantages of the self-made fixture

The wavelength scale that is used prevents
algae and 4 month after the initial setup the
aquarium is clean apart of glass "dust" that
appears and needs to be clean apx. every
one month with a basic floating magnet.

All plants respond well to the LED light apart
of the Pellia ‪(Monosolenium‬ tenerum) that did
not show any growth, it is important to remember
here that the aquarium is just planted Low-Tech
without pressurized CO2 or any other liquid
substitutions for CO2 and without yeast-based.
