I thought i would start a thread where you can post pictures of anything that would give idea's to other members, or yourself, so hopefully we can put together a large thread where you can look through to get ideas for your next scape, here is a picture as an example:

These are some shots I took which have informed my tank a bit, not sure if anyone else would find them that useful but for the sake of it here they are...

nice shots oldwhitewood. i have to sya, i find myself looking at nature 90% of the time now. it does help with aquascaping more than people would imagine. especially this time of year, when undergrowth is exposed and branches are visible. ;)

Thanks. I know what you mean but personally I still find it hard to translate what I see around me nature wise to a tank layout.

the thing is, we have a different type of nature to what they have in asia.i think it's a case of just taken little bits from our landscape and fill in the gaps with Aquajournals.

actually mine has just arrived this morning....the envelope makes me feel like 007
