    Looks the business to me! Nice to see yet another different take on the cube.

    That's a good scape Jason.
    I think once the Riccia grows in a bit, it will look really natural.

    Cheers,
    James

    Thanks Neil :thumbup: This one is definately a trial, i've never scaped without wood, my brother actually gave me the idea for the Riccia stones, but I thought it would look more like a typical garden rockery with a variety of plants in it

    Thanks James :shifty: I've never used Riccia before so fingers crossed it'll grow in nicely :lol:
