Gurame is a well-known edibel fish and widely consumed in Indonesia. However,    there is lack of information regarding a simple and inexpensive cultivation efforts. In general, caring techniques for the larval as well as the juveniles of the fish mostly carried out in aquarium with aeration and chiffon technique to trap dirt and leftover feed

Aquascape is an activity which promoting arts in decorating and planting water plants aesthetically in the aquarium.  Meanwhile, moss is a true terrestrial plant that categorized as autotroph plant due to the existence of chlorophyll.  

The Green Aquarium System is a combination between aquascape and aquaculture.  This test is using moss species namely Riccia fluitans.  The system basically works by utilizing leftover feed and fish dung so that chiffon technique no longer needed.  Aerator engine is no longer needed since the oxygen is expected to be available from water plants' photosynthesis, which in turn will be useful for the fish in the aquarium.  This system is offering simplicity in nurturing juveniles. The challenge is only to grow the moss before running the nurturing. However, if the moss seems to succeed to grow, this plan can be reused for the next cycle.

Gurame juveniles should be six days after hatching (DAH) and as many as 100 individuals. The nurturing test was running for one month with Tubifex worms as the feeding.  This treatment exhibited a good result with survival rate by 90%.
