Sounds like you're stealing my ideas! Best of luck Mark, I'm sure it'll be another good one!

I'm sure we steal amano's :lol: I'm still undecided. james keeps telling me to go 'Dutch'. This plays heavy on my mind also
 
Re: Saintly's 120cm latest scape

Do a dutch, leave copying amano to people like me who can't actually scape!
 
Re: Saintly's 120cm latest scape

Yeah, go Dutch Mark.

The UK hasn't seen a great Dutch tank (yet) and you'll get to hone your pruning skills even further...

Not sure what I'm looking forward to more - the 'scape or the photography...
 
Re: Saintly's 120cm latest scape

Looking forward to this one, whatever style you decide on.. Your scapes rock! I don't suppose I can persuade you to part with some stems when you tear the current set up down? If you dont ask and all that! :thumbup:
 
Re: Saintly's 120cm latest scape

nice one, sounds good with the mosses. Has your missus let you off with the 1 tank rule yet or is the smaller one already broken down? (120cm not as easy to sneak in as a nano!)

What rock are you thinking of to go with the moss and wood?
 
Re: Saintly's 120cm latest scape

Naw dont do dutch, do nature style and enter it into the ADA competition.

it's tempting mate. I may do a trial 60cm tank before going for it in a 120 though.

the nano is still running stu. I may just swing this if i play my cards right.

Not sure. maybe ML rock.although lava rock is tempting. 😀

true sam, even a NA scape could keep me on my toes. especially moss!

:lol: There's many for the NA style. I think it'l be NA style, maybe with a touch of dutch? :shifty:

CeeJay said:

I think you've mastered the rock + stems look. Time to go wood :thumbup:

we never master these things. :angel: and TBH, I never even come close to amano's look. this is what I aspire to.

The ball is rolling now. the nano resides on the cabinet thingy....temporarily 🙁
