Dong Que is a project that I have consulted a lot and also completed it. The ecosystem in the field is very diverse and I was very curious about it, so I observed, monitored, studied and simulated that ecosystem.

The field is far away from the city and there are plants and animals that are very close to my childhood and when I started the project I also felt quite lucky because it completed as expected.

Aquarium information

Aquarium description

Set-up date
January, 2023
Aquarium decoration

The ingredients in my aquarium are all taken from nature from mud, plants and fish to make the tank as natural as possible so I used the above to create it original and follow up to make it as complete as possible.

Aquarium equipment
  • Filter: Sunsun JY -03 5w 300l/h.
  • Lamp: Odyssea t5ho 54w lumen 10.000k.
Fish care

The tank is simulated the ideal environment for Trichopsis pumila, Boraras urophthalmoides, Trichopodus pectoralis.

The care of these individuals is also quite simple, the right temperature and the right diet are very important to avoid excessive water pollution, and then the Trichopsis pumila adults also mate and give birth in the aquarium.

Plant care

Plants in the tank include: Pogonatherum crinitum, Marsilea quadrifolia. The above 2 types of plants need strong light, so the tank is placed outside the balcony to get the necessary amount of light, the plants can grow the most, and the plants can absorb nutrients from the mud in nature. So the plant is growing very well.

Water care

The water in the tank has never been changed because the simulation is in a stagnant pond, so the water cannot be new only when the water level in the tank evaporates, then I add it to suit the plants and animals inside in.
