    Inspirational wood-dominated aquascapes

    In natural environments, beautiful feature pieces of drift and bog wood get covered by mosses stan, it depends more on where the piece of wood falls in than what it looks like, i do get your point about price and making value, but it is the individuals right to choose, after all it is their tank...

    Is Pittosporum aquarium safe?

    i'm not sure, but this article seems a bit scary, but not sure if it has the same effects when dried and debarked. http://practicalplants.org/wiki/Pittosporum_tenuifolium

    Critique my aquascape First attempt - rock and wood

    I think the planting is enough to make the RHS look busy, looks great @Danielm, the negative space does it for me, nice triangular composition. :thumbup:

    Critique my aquascape First attempt - rock and wood

    I think if they were brought in closer and arranged in a semi-circular way then softened by planting it could work. :) and slope the substrate up to the left more and barricade it in with the rock wall, it would create more triangular composition and it would look less like a wall, needs more...

    slender one for moss, the gnarly one if you want the wood to be the focus. :)

    Trimming advice

    Sounds like a plan mate, just be aware you will be losing a lot of your bio-load capacity with the heads of the bacopa going, i would keep some just so you don't get any swings in nutrient uptake.

    Trimming advice

    I tend to trim mine to just above the substrate to keep the root system intact, then replant the heads removing however much height you are aiming for. So Step 1 remove all the stems down to the start of the roots/substrate level. step 2 trim off the required amount of length from the removed...

    I like 5, the triangular composition in this one looks good, and 4 would look sick with more rocks.

    Need New Tank Advice

    If you literally only want to grow stuff that you can attach to rocks and driftwood like anubias, java fern, bolbitis, bucephalandra, hygrophila pinnatifida and mosses, you can use pretty much any substrate you like, even an inert one, it's more important to dose the water column with that type...

    Critique my hardscape Newbie Setup

    That is much closer to what i envisioned yeah :) matching the natural features of the rocks is very important.

    Critique my hardscape Newbie Setup

    it's hard to place it right as you havent got all the substrate in, but the line that runs through the middle of the rock needs to match the line on the 1st big rock, so as it is now, just tilt the stone to the left.
  22. Angus

    Critique my hardscape Newbie Setup

    The third stone the one on the right bothers me, it's almost like it needs flipping over to match the striations in your main stone on the left.

    Critique my aquascape My new project

    I don't think they really need to match perfectly keith, they just need to be on that same sort of palette, white stones are never found in nature unless freshly disturbed, so they just don't look natural and pleasing to the human eye i have to agree.

    How much substrate?

    http://www.fishtanksandponds.co.uk/calculators/substrate.html this says 3.7kg for your tank to have a 2 inch deep substrate, i think 3kg will be fine though.

    Critique my aquascape 3 months old aquascape

    if you removed the looping piece of wood from the front section it would be a quick and easy fix to balance the scape, then you would truly have a 50/50 scape with a island each side effect drawing your eyes down the path in the middle which is not necessarily true to the golden ratio but still...

    From this to this

    much better scape! looks really nice. :clap: :thumbup:

    those ideas sound really interesting foxfish, i dunno if you seen the winning tank from the hannover aquascaping comp, it had HC growing on wood, it looked amazing.

    My log!

    really nice idea, :) good to see someone thinking outside the box i think it looks really snazzy, can you still see the green mesh when the log is in the tank or has that got roots all over it?
