Interesting Plecostomus

While we servicing one of our customer's aquarium, we found an interesting plecostomus.

When it's young, it would hide itself completely in the jar. Now, it is bigger, can't fit in, but he still loves the home. It hides the body in the jar, and leaving it's month and head out. :)

It must know yoga, I don't even know how it gets into the jar???

Bottom Feeder Corydoras Catfish

What do you think about bottom feeder? 

Most people would consider bottom feeders as cleaning fish. Well, they do eat the left over food on the bottom. Some people think that they eat fish poop as well. The true is that when fish eat fish food, they won't be able to consume all the nutrient in food. Partial leftover nutrient will come out together with fish poop. That's why bottom feeder may look like eating fish poop. You don't want to over feeding fish, because bottom feeders have capacity of eating. If you have a lot of bottom feeders, a better option is to feed them separately with their food. Suggest bottom sinking wafer, before light off. They are more active looking for food at night.

I think bottom feeder is a great addition to aquarium, not just because they clean the bottom. There are beautiful bottom feeders. And because of them, the bottom level of aquarium would be full of activities. My favorite ones are corydoras catfishes. Most corydoras catfishes are pretty active. They stay on bottom. and swim around, and have fun. And I really enjoy their sharing behavior. They love hanging out with each others.

Corydoras Sterbi
Corydoras Sterbi is the best seller in my store for it's beautiful coloration. Most bottom feeders are black, white or gray. Cory Sterbi has beautiful stripe lace feeling color, and two orange colors pelvic fin make them really stand out.

Gold Stripe Laser Corydoras Catfish
Gold Stripe Laser Corydoras Catfish is one of the most outstanding, gorgeous catfish. The metal shining gold stripe is unbeatable. One of reasons makes cory catfish really enjoyable is that they share food, they sleep together. They look just so cute when they sit still together over there.

And another unique characters about Cory Catfish are:

  • Spotted body pattern
  • Masked Faces

Come and Check them out in store at Aqua View Design.

Planted Aquarium Algae Cleaner: Amano Shrimp & Otocinclus Arnoldi

Planted Aquarium is a main theme of our shop.
We create a underwater landscaping, a garden, a forest, a jungle, a grassland, etc.

When a tank is heavily planted, there are two helpers you would need to help you clean the algae.

  • Amano Shrimp
  • Otocinclus Arnoldi
Amano shrimps clean a wide range of different type of algae, especially hairy algae. They will consume leftover fish food and detritus as well.

Otocinclus Arnoldi works hard cleaning algae on the side glass, driftwood, decoration, gravel, and plants as well. They are smaller in size, comparing to other type of sucker fish. Due to it's size, it can clean tiny fragile leaves or stems of plants, making them excellent choice for planted aquarium.

New Product Finnex FugeRAY Plant+ LED Light

It's time to go energy efficient!!
We are going to carry the Finnex LED Light, mainly Plant+, if you need any other type, let us know.

Finnex Planted+ series offers true 660nm red LEDs.  Unlike competiting LED fixtures offering a cheaper and mass produced labeled 'RED' LED, the Finnex Planted+ has incorporated TRUE 660nm RED LEDs- which studies have found to be one of the most efficient wavelengths for plant photosynthesis. The true 660nm red LEDs also offer a warmer tone throughout one's aquarium.  Such as the Original Finnex FugeRAY LED, the FugeRAY Planted+ also has the blue LED moonlight feature.
The durable high output LED bulbs are built to last 40,000+ hours. With a LED spread of 120 degrees, this slim LED bar lights up the largest of aquariums. A unique leg fixture allows this LED light to mount on various sized aquariums and sump setups. To extend LED bulb longevity, the circuit boards are built with high quality aluminum and the fixture itself acts as the heat sync to allow ample cooling and superior heat dissipation.
