Aquascape, The Beauty Of The Inside Water Garden
Want to have a garden, but the land is limited? The following garden concept allows you to enjoy the beauty of the garden in different ways. Is Aquascape or the concept of a garden in the water.
A glimpse of the Aquascape concept that became popular in the late ’90s in Japan is similar to an aquarium, but has a different emphasis in terms of treatment. At Aquascape, the focus of care is on the plants in it while the aquarium is focused on fish care. Creating Aquascapein principle is the same as creating a garden concept on the ground by combining Softscape elements of water plants that are composed together with hardscape elements in water such as sand, twigs, and stones. Another component is fish, which will serve as a complement to life on an exciting water ecosystem.
Aquascape uses a large textured sand beach as a growing medium, which serves to bind the roots of plants only. The nutrient needs of food for plants are given in the form of liquid fertilizer. This system uses fresh water derived from groundwater, PAM water or processed fresh water.
The plants used are actually ornamental plants that we usually plant, but have experienced adaptation to the habitat in the water. The plant undergoes a change in appearance as the leaves are smaller, thinner and smoother, and more pale color.
Complete Aquascape with ornamental fish that perfect the ecosystem of the water park. Choose the type of fish that is easy to care for but does not interfere with the existence of plants. For example, a type of neon ornamental fish, whose body looks exotic with a blue line across its transparent body. Choose the type of fish that does not like to eat the foliage or damage the sand at the bottom.
Here are some Aquascape ideas that we get from some sources.
