Spathiphyllum Wallisii Care

Use silicone sealant to fix rocks together and to the glass to create a stable display.

Fill the tank only a third full to allow space for the non-aquatic plants.

Pockets of soil in the rockwork support terrestrial or marsh plants.

Spathiphyllum wallisii (Peace lily) Cryptocoryne spp. Sphagnum moss covering the rocks

Syngonium podophyllum (Stardust ivy)

Acorus gramineus var. puslllus (Dwarf Japanese rush)

Anubias lanceolata (Narrow-leaved anubias)

Spathiphyllum Aquarium

Lysimachla nummularia (Creeping Jenny)

Microsorium pteropus (Java fern)

Anubias barteri var. nana

Spathiphyllum wallisii (Peace lily) Cryptocoryne spp. Sphagnum moss covering the rocks

Syngonium podophyllum (Stardust ivy)

Acorus gramineus var. puslllus (Dwarf Japanese rush)

Lysimachla nummularia (Creeping Jenny)

Long, branch-style bogwood adds to the rlverbank appearance of the display and also provides a medium for growing plants.

Anubias lanceolata (Narrow-leaved anubias)

Ophiopogon japonicus 'Variegatus' (Variegated fountain plant)

There are few plants in the substrate so nutrient-rich additives or heating cables are not needed. A simple pea-gravel or lime-free substrate is adequate.

Microsorium pteropus (Java fern)

The water depth is only a quarter to a third of the aquarium depth, but this is sufficient to sustain emerging and foreground plants.

Anubias barteri var. nana

Pistia stratiotes (Water lettuce)

Tank dimensions

Echinodorus grandiflorus (Large-flowered Amazon swordplant)

18 in

Echinodorus Deficiency

Echinodorus tenellus (Pygmy chain swordplant)

The substrate consists of a layer of sand, followed by a nutrient-rich layer and a lime-free top layer. A heating cable is ideal for the foreground "lawnlike" plants, which will spread rapidly with the aid of available nutrients in the substrate.

Recommended equipment

Because this aquarium is designed to be viewed from many angles, large and bulky internal filters may not be ideal. External filters will be far less restricting. Many of the plants (including the floating species) produce leaves above water and obtain carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and the submerged plants are all relatively hardy species, so an elaborate carbon dioxide system is not essential. Carbon dioxide is still required, but a small, internal tablet or powder-based system will be adequate.

Pistia stratiotes (Water lettuce)

Nymphaea lotus var. rubra (Red tiger lotus)

The COMPLETE guide to Aquariums

The COMPLETE guide to Aquariums

The word aquarium originates from the ancient Latin language, aqua meaning water and the suffix rium meaning place or building. Aquariums are beautiful and look good anywhere! Home aquariums are becoming more and more popular, it is a hobby that many people are flocking too and fish shops are on the rise. Fish are generally easy to keep although do they need quite a bit of attention. Puppies and kittens were the typical pet but now fish are becoming more and more frequent in house holds. In recent years fish shops have noticed a great increase in the rise of people wanting to purchase aquariums and fish, the boom has been great for local shops as the fish industry hasnt been such a great industry before now.
