Well congrats on the sponsor and also on the very unique layout. I am quite excited for you as this is something I have considered in the past, well not this exactly more an anubias only tank. Anyway good luck and keep us posted
Really nice Thomas! Good photography as well.
That looks pretty cool.
Poor Tom's cat!
Very nice Thomas !! I really like the idea of the moss under a layer of lava rocks. It will take long time for the moss to cover that hill, but I am sure that when it will cover it, it will be stunning !! I keep an eye on this thread !
Nice picture, I like slow scapes ATM. I wonder what's the plant with egg-shaped bright green leaves at the right back - is it anubias or some sort of buce?
IMO, would be nice to add more wood (couple of pieces) on central slope towards front glass to increase perspective and dynamism.
That left branch went straight to left side glass and does not play well for me, but that's what I see from picture, real view maybe different.
Also, I think top-front view is much more interesting for this scape, it should be very nice to look at it from the height of man standing in front of the tank.
This will look fab when it's filled in. The Hygrophila pinnatifida looks great wish I could get mine looking like that. The black background really makes the green pop. Really nice work
Really love the clean lines you create in your scapes Thomas, this one being no exception
Undoubtedly this will be a game of pinnatifida trimming and fern thinning whilst waiting for the moss to carpet. The anubias added in numbers like you have wont change much and the buces add a splash of colour variation which compliments both the wood, rubble and pinnatifida.
Id definitely try to look at the long term and keep lighting low and steady as too much light on exposed slow growers like the anubias may end in gsa...shrimp and ottos will help keep them looking spick and span
I like the additional piece of wood also, maybe a fraction upright but it helps create a little tension.
