    So on the back of my hugely successful post on Green Aqua’s budget aquascape Video where everyone agreed I was right! What do you guys think to Jurijs new scape?

    I’m not commenting, just interested to hear your opinions.

    Tim, you just want me to say how the light screen is budget friendly, I know.....:lol:

    I’d love to try one for a week but I am not buying one! I’m after a pair of ADA pinsettes though. Maybe next Year’s Xmas present from Dave... hint......hint......!

    Back to jurijs scape! I love everything apart from the wood arrangement. Looks a bit ‘arranged’ to me. Gotta admire his talent though. I’m looking forward to see how it grows in. Think it might look much softer (obviously).

    He must get through some ro water!

    Looks amazing and Jurijs said at the end it wasn't planned. Pure genius :)

    I love the ada tank... hard scape is so simple but just works. I'm very tempted to try to replicate it. Sure that will work out fine...

    I’d love to go on an ADA scape pruning course.

    My current style is more ‘hack an hope’ :)

    Might just go round to James for the pruning lines lesson, will be cheaper than japan!
    In return I’d clean his front glass below the sand line (that isn’t a euphemism) :)

    Love the idea of this but just looks a bit forced, my ocd likes it, I think with a bit more rock underneath the wood it would flow a bit more natural

    Says me who has been doing this for 1 year....

    Just watched the jurjis vid. Not a fan of that scape, rather weird and unnatural looking. Don't like the regular size rocks along the front...

    I quite like it tbh, will be interesting to see how it grows in.
    Due to the ease of access at the rear with the linear wood structure looking after those crypts will be easy, although i half expected that it would have been full of stems for that reason.
    Once that balansae gets up it will look stunning flowing with the wood lines, and the huge amount of crypts and buce will give an aged feeling which I guess is what Jurijs is going for.
    Interesting scape for sure.
