    Hi all! My name is Daniel Bitanu and I have 33 years. I am an aquarist in the city Navodari, region-Constanta, country-Romania. Begin by saying that I like to have ,,moisture,, in the house. :D I have some experience in freshwater aquarium, and of course countless experiments on nerves and my pocket, from small aquariums to some larger, plastic plants in the natural and ever-so about 15 years. I took it more seriously with aquarium plants since I discovered the hobby sites and I've tried to make aquarium gardening with fertilizers that are on all roads (JBL Ferropol, EasyCarbo EasyLife, PPS-Pro, Micro trace mix) and water with KH for 13-15.



    I present some personal setups:

    Thank you for sharing these pictures and welcome at the forum! I really love the fissidens on the wood, will be doing that when I rescape next month too! The last is a bit 'empty' for my liking but all the plants seem to be very healthy, nice!

    Thank you all for the nice welcome !


    Yo-han: Last configuration is called ,,Intermedius,, as it will be very short, within three months. So they left a month and a bit. Then will follow a completely different. But still surprise.
    Especially for you sir Yo-han:

    Hello Bitanu, welcome from Holland!

    I see you have 2 JBL e900 filters on your tank?
    [​IMG]

    Why do you have all outtake and intake on thesame side? Can you explain?

    Do you have some sort of skimmer in the corner, if so, what brand is it?
    --> JBL Topclear 2 ?

    ,,Why do you have all intake and outtake on thesame side? Can you explain?,,

    Gilles: Because I am to have a circular water current, much stronger within the basin. I believe that biological filtration is very important, not the mechanics. What would have if I mounted on each side if I want only my biological filter?

    Thanks Yo-han !


    Protein skimmer is the model JBL Topclean 1.

    Nice tank and design, different, smaller groups of stems and mid ground plants and larger HC area.

    It's a nice picture of you and your wife. Is that the Black Sea behind you?
