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.


http://img34.imageshack.us/img34/898/aq204.jpg
http://img694.imageshack.us/img694/8670/aq205.jpg





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.
