    Just thought I'd continue the "Do you like Iwagumi scapes?" thread and broaden it a bit... I've probably missed off some styles (let me know and I'll update).

    I think I'm still hung up on the Nature/Wood style. I love some of the CAU scapes, and really liking George's scape in PFK. Another one I like a lot at the mo is Jay's 120cm journal. Fantastic wood layout IMO :)

    So what's you're prefered style?

    I voted Iwagumi, but I would love to see more paludariums around.

    Yeah, not enough Paludariums. The AGA paludarium section last year was tiny :(

    Hmm, is there a nice link somewhere that describes what all the styles mean, I'm leaning towards paludariums but I might like some of the other styles better if I knew what they were ;)

    Here's a pretty good list and links to discussion over at Aquascaping World...

    I've changed the poll so you can change your mind and also vote twice ;)

    i think the reason there are not many paludariums is that it looks a bit wierd. a half filled fish tank. i think it looks strange, whats the point in buying a tank if you only half fill it.???

    On the paludarium front, I quite like the Wabi-Kusa style (not on the list). It's along the same lines but smaller/more artsy fartsy ;)

    My ambition is to one day, set up a big paludarium (6' x 6' x 2') and grow lots of epiphythic orchids and bromeliads in a natural tropical setting. I used to look after a huge tropical palm house for Brighton parks and gardens and it was heaven.....add an aquatic section, streams and waterfalls and a few tree frogs and my life would be complete.

    My next scape is going to be a nature/wood scape in my rio 180. Really looking forwards to trying to make something great looking and reasonably low/medium maintenace...
