Dave Spencer said:As for the â€œjungleâ€ lookâ€¦.is this an aquascape? :? Supply a tank, water lights, substrate and ferts, then buy a mix of plants off eBay and stick them in the tank and watch them become overgrown.
Reading between the lines, are â€œjunglesâ€ for those that can`t aquascape (no offence ), or is it a genuine type of scape? I`m not convinced.
Blimey, you're not shy of controversy are you?!
You're wrong anyway. Is an Iwagumi a proper scape? Supply a (more expensive) optiwhite tank, (more expensive) glassware, luminaire, Aquasoil Amazonia, stick 3 stones in at different angles, buy a few pots of HC for the front and a few pots of hairgrass for the back, chuck some embers in and your done, dosing your ADA Jaunty Lights, or whatever they're called, every day. After 3 months chuck it away and do it all again with some other stones.
Good jungle scapes are infinitely harder due to their longevity and therefore require more maintenance and dedication.
