Recreating nature...

A beautiful aquarium display with healthy fish and growing  plants can only be achieved by creating a balanced and stable aquarium ecosystem. An  aquarium ecosystem are the environmental conditions within which your fish are expected to live and grow in.  The main goal of any aquarium system is to replicate the natural environment of its inhabitants. All aquatic ecosystems; freshwater or marine,  are defined by three components

Physical properties

Water chemistry 

Biological processes 

In nature all three components interact with each other to create a balanced cycle. 

Peace of Mind...

 ViDERE ECOSYSTEMS  are  collections of equipment and natural materials, designed to recreate the balance found in nature. A stable ecosystem is one of the key components of a successful aquarium, ensuring healthy fish and an algae free display.  

We created these packages to simplify what can be a complicated and difficult decision to make at the design stage, of any aquarium set up. 

Each ecosystem comes with the right type of  lighting, filtration and .natural decor to meet the requirements  of your fish as well as the demands of your lifestyle.  We currently offer ecosystems for the two types of freshwater aquariums; HARDSCAPE and PLANTED.  

FRESHWATER

A freshwater aquarium is a system set up to house fish originating from freshwater river and lake ecosystems. They are characterized by the predominant use of wood, stone, and sand to create an aquascape defined by robust features and a pronounced architecture. These aquasacpes are heavily reliant on shape and form to create a visual impact.

Hardscapes are a great entry point for aspiring aquarists as these systems require the least amount of attention and expertise, allowing a degree of flexibility in their long term care.

PLANTED

A planted tank is an aquarium system, set up to house plants and fish originating from freshwater river and lake ecosystems. Popularised in the early 2000's by the works of Japanese aquascaper Takashi Amano these types of displays are known for their vibrancy and the positive energy that they bring to a space. Often referred to as nature aquariums due to the fact that plants complete the cycle of life between the animals and the physical environment in an ecosystem.  

These set ups typically require better lighting, better filtration, with the addition of mineral supplements to support healthy plant growth without nuisance algae. Following the correct steps along with having the right equipment  will ensure success with such a rewarding aspect of fish keeping.       

 

- PLANTED
