My ADA 45p - Celestial Cove.

The original idea was to use driftwood with moss to create a triangular shape with archway/cove with carpeting parts within. Worked out well I believe. And as I wanted the CPDs shoal inside the cove :)

If I were to start again I would have not gone for sand in the front and a carpet instead. Perhaps a slightly different wood layout as its looks a little unnatural to me sometimes. Perhaps sloping from left to right instead as well.

Unfortunately due to time constraints with breaking it down and not owning a camera means the final shot was rushed with equipment inside. No expert as well with a camera so a bit blurry too. Also fish not shoaling nicely in it! It probably reflects the tank at a 8/10 state. Im happy and proud with it though.

What a lovely scape! Looks really lush. I think the sand works well, very Amanoesque.

Is there an AquascapeSoc at your Uni? Maybe you should found one. T

Many thanks for the compliments!

You need 25 interested people to set up a society at my uni, so unfortunately am up against it if I tried to set one up! Not sure how many people are interested in aquascaping in my age group tbh. I am also running another society myself atm and it is a whole lot of work haha - I may try and garner some interest next academic year however!
