    Great times on Sat - we just finished scaping a 60P opti-white tank with TMC leds above, about 30 kgs (!) of Seiryu stones, HC, Parvula and mosses.

    Inspiration (Canyon in Quebec - by Mary-Anne):

    Ah hah! Dirty pipes on the left!! Just kidding guys... your shop is probably the best on the planet right now! Everyday I dream about running a place like this.

    What a nice scape with the rocks too. Personally I wouldn't have raised the rock so it peaks above the waterline, it'd be lost in photos. But I really like the dark areas created around the scape, like caves. Brilliant!

    Cheers guys, thanks for your feedback. :thumbup:

    Yup one of the glass pipe broke. We're using an eheim there til the new glass arrive. One of our team member is using heavily these glasses. :D


    Luckily the scape survived the weekend. All mosses are in place and i do not see damaged parts where we glued them. So that's good.

    Will be interesting to see how the scape will work in the following months. How the LEDs will grow these mosses.
    Also i read that somewhere that Amano shrimps are not recommended to sensitive mosses like Riccardia. What's your experience. We never used this moss before, but would love to add at least 16 shrimps in the next 2 weeks.

    For fishes we plant to use a group of Boraras Brigittae to keep the mountain effect as much as we can. So we will see how that will work. ;)

    I agree with the rock peak comment, but that is only a small criticism of the amazing rock work you've achieved!

    That peak is not too bad especially if you see that in life.

    If i do a shot from the front, the peak reflection makes the photo interesting.

    However if you move up a bit or watching the stuff from the top the peak is a nice add on.

    We've seen many great tanks where people used up the full tank height with stones, hills etc. I always wanted to try this. :D

    Thanks for your feedback guys :thumbup:

    BTW TMC Leds work well, but we all knows that since George's amazin iwagumi scape.

    IMHO, the big rocks at the right side distract the focal point, because it has same size with main rock and has lighter colour comparing to the other. If I were you, I will change that rocks to a smaller one and with same texture/color
