Silver : This feels like an asmr video

chillstep4life : Is it just me or is it kind of difficult to hear your voice? It's very strange. It sounds like your trying to talk quietly but not necessarily whispering.

EatRyanBread : The internet feels so starved of clam and informational content. THIS is a breath of fresh air! You've made a YouTube video feel like a podcast and I love it so much. Thank you for info, the inspiration, and a quiet 5 minutes to relax to. Please coordinate a collab with the wonderful Rachel O'leary because you two would be incredible together! <3 <3 <3

zaddy musk : your voice creeps me tf out

dclxvi : You and Dustin doing a video together will probably be an evil scheme to burst everybody's ear drums. One whispers like a hypnotist. Everybody happily raises their volume. And then BAM! The other shouts like a maniac. ENT doctors around the world won't know what hit them. Then Alex Jones will take out a video saying the aquarium hobby makes people go deaf. And it will all spiral into Trump getting reelected. Please don't do that.

Travis Taylor : I like all the information, all is well shot, however, if you could maybe talk in a way that doesn't sound like you are trying to be quiet from other people i just think it may help.

good samaritan : Please make a video...on how you weaned it off this seems to be one of the most key aspects that lead to the success of this tank. A great and honest effort...indeed. Its so refreshing to see someone who actually deacribes in detail on how he actually arrived at such a lovely tank. Your efforts will greatly benefit those who are just getting themselves into this beautiful hobby.

Rachel O'Leary : nice video Alex!

MD Fish Tanks : Love this. Similar to my own nano aquascape

Ben Woolgar : this is like fish tank asmr

Nanli : Hello random person looking at the comments 😊 That is amazing! This is my goal for my aquarium to look very natural... right now I have a better fish in a three gallon but I hope to update the setup to make a nano tank!

Paul Conway : Really appreciate this kind of video. Good clear information delivered in a calm voice with unobtrusive background music. Please do your substrate comparison video, it's so important to get the substrate right and would be great to see what results you get.

IMC IMC : Shss, Alex is talking.

Tristan Gurnea : Your voice makes me uncomfortable.

Lyndon Stevens : That voice! Its quite mesmerizing. You were on H2O plants so I came over, and that voice just got me. Love that tank, since I am starting to scape slowly so this was great for me. Now I will be getting some Buce and hair grass. New sub.

pecktec : Looks really really beautiful. Great job!

graphite : Well, i was just watching Rachel O'Leary's live stream and your name popped up........... i subbed.

Joseph Jose : Amazing setup, but What about the main things? Like, what substrate, did you use any root tabs for initial growth, do you fertilize regularly, how many hours is the light on, what kind of filteration for the water, how much water change and how often, how often do you feed them? Thanks!

Michał Kondratowicz : It look strange for me. Why? Lack of CO2 + lack of light = even well sutied plants to such condition will start to stretch up and won't look so good as on the footage. If there are no water changes and fishes are not constantly starving, the water would be rich in nitrogen and phosphorus with potasium defficiency. Such conditions result in algae overgrowth (yes, some algae can perfectly develop under low CO2 and low lighting conditions). Therefore I am a little bit sceptic about how low maintance in requires. I think that the matter of fact it is similar to any low tech tank.

L Dillman : ASMR LOL

Benjamin Bormann : Nice video - i really like it. I´ve got a question. I noticed that tiny little snails (the white ones) - you can see it at 1:40 - 1:41 (four of them in that frame). Do someone know which species this is? I got many of them - no matter how hard I try to eliminate them - there is always one more left (and it must be hermaphrodite). Thank you :>

NihlusGreen : Loving the tank, especially the offset placement to include the house plant!

M 7 : Great video man.l love the way u explain things

Solve Everything : Beautiful video, what a shame it isn't 4k..

RR26 : Cannot believe only 5 watt led, which is at about 14 inches high in the video, is good enough for these carpet plants.

perkt : Good for you but your voice is very scary

Billy Bob : Very nice thank you for sharing

Bob Carter : I really look forward to your videos, they feel so “zen” but with the added bonus of learning something new. Thank you so much!

Ama Teur : Love the scape with the petrified wood and of course enhanced by the Espe's! I have the same Dennerle (I'm in Canada) system and agree wholeheartedly with your assessment and excellent tank to scape with that footprint and the light is excellent. I replace the internal filter for a HOB but other than that without CO2, no problems. Thanks again for sharing and keep up the great vids.

Clay Beatty : You are have the voice of a Roman Mars for aquascapes. This is really great quality stuff! Can't wait for more.

FUBOL7 : Loved it! I want to get into Aquascaping.

Zx Khor : Good quality video man

Katie Abraham : I’m a new sub and I’m really struck by this scape, I haven’t seen anything quite like it. You’ve also convinced me to go with Dennerle but I’m UK based so can’t help you out purchasing through your links. Keep up the amazing, high quality videos.

Fishy Snowman : Awesome love the video. I subbed

Jacey Darling : Great video, beautiful tank!

Juan Carlos Senor-Clinton : Amazing video if you keep this up you will grow rapidly you remind me a lot of the clicksprings channel style

Theodore Uy : From Rachel O'Leary's live stream. Subscribed! 😍

Just Creepy : I am personally not in love with this choice of rock, but I am curious what else you can do. Many thanx for your video, love your voice and subscribed to your channel 🤗

John Arnold : Looks cool man and well..the people with the negative remarks..what can you say about people like that without swearing

feline leader : Nice and peaceful place in your tank

Jason Stiles : ASMRium

Jalu R. Prakoso : your plants are basically the same as water temperature is about 25-27° ....but why do my red/yellow cherry shrimps not survive :' so sad... any suggestion or info about that?

KingFluffs : Can you keep shrimp in it though? Nvm just saw one.

Shwat : It's so refreshing to have an aquarium video where I dont have to turn the audio off from the host yelling at me, or speaking like a damn infomercial! Dont change the relaxed vocals! Thanks!


Natalie /: : does he feed the fish or do they eat the plants

Robert Fletcher : Alex, what fertilizer are you using? Also the percentage water change?

Aquatasy : Absolutely fantastic! Beautiful scape, great advice, and excellent production values. How did I not know about your channel until now? (Excuse me while I go subscribe and work my way through your other videos.)

ritiksfilms : How often do you change the water and how much water do you change

Be4givN : This may be a stupid question, but I have to ask... where does the fish poop go? BTW, your tank is GORGEOUS! I have a small tank, with 7 Rummy Nose Tetras, 1 Dwarf Corydoras, 3 Amano Shrimp, 3 Cherry Shrimp, and 1 Nirite snail. I also have 3 different Anubis plants. I don't have any problems with algae. Cleaning the gravel takes too much water out of my tank, so I do it in sections. Seems like you don't have to do gravel cleaning which makes me wonder, where does the poop go?
