How to Set Up an Aquascaped Aquarium Using a Bonsai dirftwood Moss Tree – Easy Set Up

Hello driftwood aquarium lovers,

Driftwood for aquarium

In this video, we will show you guys how to easily set up an aquarium tank using a bonsai driftwood moss tree.

– Our bonsai driftwood used in this video: BS/BM/BB model

– Our natural driftwood and moss ball are also used from Bonsaidriftwood store

You can check out more available model here

Prepare for this project: 5-gallon tank/ filter/ soil/ bonsai driftwood/ natural driftwood / moss ball / elephant stone

Here is the steps

Step 1: Soak the bonsai driftwood and natural driftwood in water for about 3-6 days or you can just boil them together for the MAXIMUM of 20 minutes. Remember this guys

Step 2: break your moss ball into big flat pieces and small pieces

Step 3: add moss to tree – you can add big pieces onto the flat top part then fill in with the smaller pieces. – You can use aquarium glue to keep the moss on if you prefer to – for most of my aquarium tanks, I do not need to use glue as moss ball will not float so they barely fall off the tree – but its your reference guys

Step 4: Add soil to tank – smoothen them out- make sure they get a good coverage all over the tank bottom about 1/2 in, this will help your elephant stone and all driftwoods stable on its surface.

Step 5: Add in the natural driftwood; my driftwood in this case have a curve look so i used it as a cave/ hole/ bridge so maybe my fishes can go under this then swim up – definitely will look pretty awesome

Step 6: now we add in the aquarium moss tree, make sure we press the moss tree down a little then maybe add some soil over the base to create a natural looking set up for this rock base. 

Step 7: time for some elephant stone (ancient stones) , I like to use some small size with lots of character and lay them low in front of the aquarium moss tree so I can be able to see the different in the ancient stones color and my moss tree base color

Step 8: lets add some greenery now, I usually like to add some moss around the stone or on some part of the natural driftwood so I can get that greener look for my whole aquarium set up

Step 9: fill up my new and super easy aquarium set up with moss ball, aquarium moss tree and some Elephant ( ancient stones)

Step 10: Sit back, maybe grab a beer and enjoy the beautiful looking aquarium
