The Green Aqua and ADA Hungary team has built many exclusive aquariums - besides the 21 Gallery-fishtanks and contest works - for numerous clients. Besides aquascaping, our team is also into aquaponics, pond and saltwater projects.
This page is a collection of some of our external projects. It is not a complete list, we just selected a few works that we are especially proud of. Our services are discussed in detail on the aquarium design and maintenance pages.

The aquarium on this picture is one of the oldest and most stable fishtanks of ours, and Green Aqua is very proud to have this exceptional customer. The tank has been running for many long years virtually algae free. It is a 120x45x45 cm (WDH) opti-white tank with 2x ADA Solar I lights above it. It is filtered with two Eheim external filters, one Professionel 3 - 2080 and one Professionel 3 - 2075 (now 2275). The room can really heat up - especially after the office closes and they switch of the air-conditioning - so we installed an Aqua Medic Titan 150 chiller on the system, which cools down perfectly the 243 liters of aquarium water to the desired 23-24 degrees Celsius. The aquarium has been installed at the center of the office with a balanced view from 3 sides. Together with the Budapest Parliament picture - actually made by one of the owners of the Printing House - the view of the space is captivating. The aquascape was named Earth-Wind-Fire by the owner. We also made a beautiful video of this scape!
The aquarium was re-scaped in November, 2015 and it now gives home to a hardscape that was actually a bronze-medalist at the European contest EAPLC. The aquascape, entitled Before the Creation of Adam is a futuristic sci-fi based creation with sculpted rocks, Riccardia and Parvula plants and a bigger shoal of Cardinal Tetras. The aquarium lighting was changed to 2x ADA AquaSky Twin LED lamps.
BANK OF CHINA
The Hungarian branch of the well-known Chinese bank has asked us to build this 90 cm wide jewel in their Budapest Office. The custom-made curved front glass of this opti-white aquarium was specially ordered because the fishtank is situated right at the entrance of a trading-room and the rules of Feng shui will not permit any sharp edges close to the door. The light is a white ADA Solar I NAMH lamp, the effective filtration is provided by an Eheim 2180 external filter (with built-in heating). The system was boosted with a couple of extras too: a GHL plant fertilizer dozer, an 11W Eheim UV 800 sterilizer, and a JBL cooling fan to help with the temperature.
The white aquarium cabinet goes well with the white walls, makes it almost invisible. The curved front of the cabinet matches the aquarium front glass perfectly, forming an exact quarter of an ellipse. The front door of the cabinet opens smoothly to the left. According to Chinese tradition the aquarium is home to mostly red fish.
The Red Moor Wood and Petrified wood stone form a hardscape symbolizing the fight of a dragon and a snake. It was inspired by the world-famous creation of the Hong Kong aquascaper Mr. Dave Chow. This fishtank is maintained weekly, this is more than enough to have a crystal-clear and algae-free view with the advanced supporting gear used. The equipment we used fills the cabinet completely, when we open the cabinet door we sometimes have the impression that we are looking under the hood of a car - at an engine.
This aquascape is decorating the trading room since April, 2014. The management likes it so much that they have decided to feed the fish themselves and did not opt for an auto-feeder. They also fill the evaporated water once or twice-a-week.
We were approached by Márk McMenemy to assist in his Spektrum Home Television series GreenTeam in 2012. This 60x30x36 cm opti-white fishtank was built at Hungarian singer Zséda's living room. Zséda is probably the best known hungarian pop singer at the moment, she has won many Music Awards. She is a happy owner of this aquarium ever since we built it in front of the cameras. You can watch the TV-episodes here (sorry, it is in Hungarian language only - but images are pretty self-explanatory).
OTHER CLIENT AQUARIUMS
These pictures were made during a water change of this huge, 200x60x60 cm planted tank that was made at a good Green Aqua customer. The wooden cover for the hang-on lights was still not ready at the time of these images (they were completed later). The fishtank, situated next to this lovely bow window decorates the dining room.
