    Hey guys. I'm forumlating a plan for a new aquascape and I need some inspiration. I have a nice large chunk of wood which I think would make an really nice island scape in either my 4ft t ank or Rio 180 (not decided yet, both are sitting empty and waiting).

    I have decided on substrates - fine gravel and tropica substrate underneath. I know I want to have the foreground in hair grass, and maybe tall hairgrass at the rear. I have some Staurogyne too. Thinking a small amount of mosses (fissidens sp. etc).

    Anyhow, I'm really looking for inspirational images... Anyone got any pics they can share?

    Thanks in advance :)

    I was looking through yesterday at the 2006 and 2007 entries. One or two in there :) Might take a wonder over to the CAU website too...
