    Couldn't resist trying this awesome piece of gnarliness out in my new 60P. I'm going traditional NatureScape with this one, Crypts, Java fern, maybe some red stems etc. Either way, I think I'll keep it relatively simple - back to basics.
    There's still a few yards left in Return of the Shallow...but it'll soon be time to tear it down, and then I can start working this new scape.

    Hi tim
    Very cool. I love that wood. Similar wood i saw at glens place. He had one in a dry hardscape and it look so cool.

    Going to look cool i know

    Cheers

    As you would know working with a one piece hardscape in an Aquascape is not going to be easy at all.

    Thanks Guys :)
    That's a good idea, but it'd be more of a terrascape and I don't think I have room for that :)
    It's all smoke and mirrors ;)
    I'll have to take a look, might be heading back to MK next week sometime.
    Your probably right about that Keith, I doubt I'll be able to resist the temptation to add more hardscape. But the idea this time is to let the plants tell the story :)

    The only thing I can think of is fixing it to a piece of slate and standing it upright. Plants a thick matting of small grassy plants and around the same leaf type but tall making it look like a semi wild appeal.:crazy::crazy:

    This will be like Takashi Amano Retro Tank

    - a rewind to Back When it was just wood in those amazing Nature Aquarium tanks with nary a stone in sight :shh:

    Of course now we :lurking: :lurking: :lurking: :nailbiting: :nailbiting: :nailbiting: :nailbiting: :nailbiting:

    I guess that's the idea alto, and if I can capture something of the essence of those stunning Takashi Amano scapes I'll be very pleased. But I'm never really sure how my scapes will turn out :confused:

    That would work nicely too Keith :)

    You know, the side by side paintings, glyphs ... or in this instance, tanks :D

    Like James Marshall (I think) triptych in

    The Aqueous Art Movement at Art Gallery

    (Is this stickied somewhere? I remembered it from ages past & went hunting ...)
