this is just a foreground themulus. tanks don't always need height.Themuleous said:Are you going to get some height into the scape using plants? Rock alone look quite low to me?
you've got it sam. i intend to use mosses, acicularis, tennellus, crypts, c heferi. maybe a lilly.samc said:i like it when amano makes a foreground line with all moss.
cheers Nico, The whole scape may seem a little unorthodox with not having driftwood or a main stone, but i want to try and be different with the planting. i do recall an amano scape from many moons ago, where he does not use hard scape at all, so anything is possible with this at least i don't have to look at it everydaynico said:great start i like the way you used the stones , even though you used them making a line it doesn't seems linear at all , i especially like the disposition of the stones in the center part , the angle you used (especially for the right stone) is great , i think that i'm going to like this one
some great colours. do the pale crypts along the front disrupt the sense of scale, abit? I wish I could create something of that standard, who am i to judge. but anyway what do you think?saintly said:
personally i don't think so. i think this scape shows great use of crypts and different varieties. Amano never ceases to amaze me.chump54 said:do the pale crypts along the front disrupt the sense of scale, abit?
yep, i know mate. i cant believe i'm actually going to plant slow growers NO STEMS!TDI-line said:Looks great so far Mark, and you know i'm a fan of the low level height of planting too.
it seems that Amano does huge slopes for iwagumi but for his "nature aquarium" style (wood only type) slopes are way more moderate , even more for the ones using sand where sometimes they seem nearly flatsaintly said:i've seen a few amano set ups nearly flat!
