    Wow! That is going to look really awesome! I especially love the 'seats'. With the further explanation I understand what you're trying to do. I look forward to seeing it planted and operational! :)

    Hum... very, veeeery sceptically waitinh to see the final result. To be honest, I would`t put that in my home even if threatened with gun, but like all the rest here, I am curious to see what will come out of this. :)

    Hi there,






    And now for a brief up-date;

    I worked on building the "technology"
    that will sink U R B A N AQUASCAPING
    structures deep into the blue water.

    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 NATURAL GROW.

    My other self is now working on the Aq'
    cabinet and on automated water change
    system that should help in maintenance.

    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.

    Here in Israel the project known as
    "PREGNANCY OF AN ELEPHANT"

    I work on that project only at my
    free time and as I write now it is
    about 14 months of pregnancy.

    The delivery (of a baby) is planed
    to be within six weeks from now
    (I.G.W) in full 'Caesarean section'.

    Rarely have I seen so many pictures and still had so little idea about what I was looking at. You have vision, no doubt.

    Wow! I must say you must have something special planned for all the work you have put in. I thought my simple scape is already taking too much of my time. Dying to see the finished product.^:)^

    Please hold your horses!

    It is definitely inappropriate to
    use those words, I do what I do
    simply as a therapy and no more.

    Any way, thank U very much
    for all comments, I hope to
    update here a.s.a.p.I.G.W*.

    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.


    [​IMG]
    Thank U for all the people that gave feedbacks
    and my deep apology if I missed someone.

    LED Light for planted aquarium
    U R B A N NATURAL GROW


    My friend and I worked in the past six months
    on that project, It was important for us to create
    LED light fixture that is equivalent to a pair of
    54 watt T5 high quality fluorescents.

    We took into consideration the light wavelength
    combination that will help create photosynthesis.
    Optical components were integrated in order to
    produce maximum light scattering in the water
    from top and all the way down to the substrate.

    A lot of thought were given to the practical
    aspects so we designed 3 operational modes;


    Mode 1- Main light
    Main light includes 3 illuminations levels;
    Low, Medium and High that will allow maximum
    flexibility while one monitor the plants growth.
    Illuminations levels also enable to create the
    course of sunrise-Midday-sunset as a reflection
    of natural behavior of sun light in our planet.

    Mode 2 - View
    View mode can be very useful for general
    inspection and maintenance at any time of the
    day or the night, on top of that the View mode
    will illuminate the aquarium in nice and bright
    light and that can be also very helpful when
    guests arrive to visit while the main light is off.

    Mode 3 - Moonlight
    Moonlight is integrated in the fixture.

    General information
    The LED light pushes at least 2,500 clean luminous
    and power consumption is up to 45 watt, we also
    install digital controller and the fixture is water proof
    Length 122 cm, Width 4 cm, Height 2 cm.
