SETTING UP A NANO AQUARIUM ALL THE FASCINATION OF A NANO AQUARIUM - IN JUST 60 MINUTES!
1. The right location
Choose a relatively dark spot – in a corner, for example. Direct sunlight should be avoided – it may lead to algae formation and overheating. Before you begin, rinse the aquarium out with warm tap water (no detergents). The black decorative foil provided can be stuck onto the back of the Nano Cube. Now place the aquarium with the safety underlay on a smooth, horizontal surface of adequate load-bearing capacity.
2. Water plants
Shrimps are highly sensitive to certain contaminants. As the possibility of newly purchased aquarium plants releasing substances that may be harmful to shrimps (pesticides, fertilizer residues) cannot be ruled out, plants should always be watered for at least three days before placing them in the aquarium.
For pot plants: remove culture substrate, trim the roots back to approx. 2cm long For stem plants: Remove foam Store the plants in a bucket with plenty of tap water at the correct temperature (15-20 °C), at room temperature in a light place (window) Change the water daily.
ON THE DAY WHEN YOU SET THE AQUARIUM UP FOR THE FIRST TIME:
1. Pour in DeponitMix special nutrient medium
Nano DeponitMix provides the foundation for lush plant growth. It supplies aquarium plants with vital nutrients through the roots. Nano DeponitMix has been developed specifically for the sensitive situation regarding nutrients in mini-aquaria. It forms the bottom bed layer, of approx. 2 cm in height.
2. Wash and pour in Shrimps Gravel Bed
Cover the nutrient medium with a roughly 3 cm layer of thoroughly washed Shrimps Gravel Bed. In addition to its attractive appearance, this fine gravel also prevents food residues from disappearing between the grains of gravel and contaminating the water unnecessarily. Available in the natural-look colours Sulawesi black and Borneo brown.
3. Position decorative items
Stones, roots or special decorative elements can be used to decorate the aquarium. Ensure that the stones are suitable for aquaria: They should be water-neutral and must not release any undesired substances such as lime or dangerous heavy metals. Use only special aquarium root wood. Fresh wood is unsuitable, as it will rot. Crayfish, crabs and shrimps require adequate hiding places and retreats, particularly during moulting. The ideal solution: Dennerle Crusta Tubes or Crusta Cave.
4. Fill aquarium 2/3 full
Fill the aquarium two-thirds full with tap water at a temperature of around 20 °C. Place a flat plate in the aquarium and pour the water in slowly over this plate, to avoid swirling up the bed. Add Nano Water Conditioner to the tap water beforehand (2 drops per l of fresh water), in order to neutralise dangerous constituents such as chlorine and heavy metals.
5. Place plants in the aquarium
Now place the well watered aquarium plants in the aquarium. Around 80% of the bed should be covered with plants at the beginning. Fast-growing stem plants are ideal for this purpose – algae will then have virtually no chance right from the outset.
6. Install filter and add water until aquarium is full
Place the compact Nano corner filter in one of the rear corners of the aquarium Against the black background and behind a few stem plants it will later be almost invisible. Now fill the aquarium completely full.
7. Fit lighting cover and panel
Now fit the attachable Nano Light. The aquarium should be used with the cover panel fitted at all times, in order to prevent the shrimps from possibly jumping out of the aquarium and to reduce evaporation of the water.
The aquarium is now set up. Now switch on the filter and lighting. A little patience is now required before the first creatures are placed in the aquarium.
After 3 days: Replace 50% of the water. Treat tap water with Nano Water Conditioner beforehand! After 6 days: Replace 50% of the water. Treat tap water with Nano Water Conditioner beforehand! After 7 days: Replace 50% of the water. Treat tap water with Nano Water Conditioner beforehand. Now the first shrimps can be placed in the aquarium. Recommended initial stock: 5 shrimps / 10 l water Necessary care measures
Daily: Feed shrimps, add Nano Daily Fertilizer Weekly: Replace 25-50% of the water, trim plants if necessary, clean glass Only 15 minutes a week!

Damaged or Perished on arrival
We pride ourselves on the quality of our products, and will never knowingly send out sub-standard or faulty products. We use trusted shipping partners, Royal Mail and DPD, because in our experience they are the best. However, accidents do happen, especially when you are in the business of selling glass and plants!
Unfortunately, we cannot take responsibility for plants that perish or deteriorate once they are in your aquarium or terrarium - the reason is simple, all aquarium and terrarium set-ups are different, and all plants have different needs. Doing your research ahead of time is all part of the learning process, and we hope our website provides enough information for you to make an informed decision. If you need more information about a product, or are unsure if it will work with your set-up, just get in touch, we won't bite!
Evolution Aqua Aquascaper aquariums are shipped directly from the manufacturers warehouse. Delivery is within 14 days, but normally sooner than this. There is an additional delivery charge on all aquariums of £49.99 due to the size and nature of the product. You will receive a call to advise of a delivery date so you can be in to accept delivery.
All other aquariums can be shipped but may be classed in our 'Heavy Shipping' rate if the total order is more than 20kg.
Hardscape & other heavy materials
We pride ourselves on our extensive range of hardscape, but we understand it is not always possible to come and visit to touch and feel stone and wood in person. Please get in touch with us via phone (+44 (0) 1603 761900) or email (email@example.com) if you have a particular layout or shape(s) you are trying to source.
Given the nature of hardscape (ie it's heavy and expensive to ship!), we have had to cap free shipping at 20kg. The reason is simple, if a customer buys 3 x 15kg bags of gravel and 15kg of stone, this costs us over £50 to ship to you - meaning we make little, or nothing on your order - unfortunately, to stay alive as a business we do need to make a profit so we can carry on offering quality products to our customers.
