Have you heard of the abusive Teddy Tanks being sold? I was horrified when I saw they are currently advertising on YouTube with videos that prey on children and unknowing parents when you search for aquarium related videos. I have seen petitions to have them stopped, but I haven't seen word about their YouTube campaign. Please help spread the word to report to YouTube and have Teddy Tanks taken down from the ads. You know they will only respond to a large enough outcry! Please help!

I must confess that I’ve got no idea what this is about — but here you go :)
BEWARE OF THE TEDDY TANK!

I know, I know, I am posting too many things that aren’t aquariums :) but please excuse me this one more time: here is a paludarium I just set up today. (And here the plants that eventually did not fit in :)).

The first day of this paludarium, dominated by a Sophora prostrata “tree” — I am eager to see where it is going to develop! I’ll make sure to make some better photos shortly — this one was taken quickly with the telephone. 

Interested in how these are kept moist? Constant top-offs?

Well, it is mostly built with aquasoil, that really keeps wet as long as there is some water in the bottom, so periodic refills would be just fine. 

The results of the 2014 IAPLC contest are on the mail. The contest itself is, however controversial due to its rules of non-publishing and the odd judgment decisions from the past, is still the premier showcase of the best works of the planet’s best aquascapers each year — hence, results are usually much awaited by the aquascaping geeks across the world.

Not a classic wabi kusa, but you may like it though :)

Hi, in a couple of months i'll start aquascaping too because i find it very amazing what you can do so everything is a little new for me. So i'm kind of gathering information about everything. I have a couple of questions that you maybe can answer for me: 1. What temperature is the best for aquascaping ? and 2. Is it possible to build a beautiful aquascape tank without the CO2 pump ?

The ideal temperature is somewhere around 22-24 degrees Celsius

It is not impossible to create beautiful aquascapes without pressurised CO2 injection, but it is easier if you have a controlled CO2 supply. 

Good luck to your endeavours! :)
