George Farmer said:Not long 'til final photo shoot time. You may make the AGA deadline, hopefully.
What are you future plans?
Keep this going for a while, maintaining it in it's current form?
Or slowly evolving it?
Or complete re-scape?
Ray said:its even better than the version on my desktop
Ray said:I wonder if the sand should slope ever so slightly back from the front glass up to the Aquasoil, adding depth? I
Ray said:I also wonder if in due course it will look better with or without the stems - I guess that depends if it is an Iwagumi or an Aqua scape - it seems to be metamorphosing from the former to the latter?
thanks ray, certainly a confidence boosting statement i would say i would manage one version of this tank before times up for entrys, yes sure it could evolve into something else, just not in time.Ray said:You might end up with more than one scape from this "evolution" that is worthy to be submitted to the AGA...
it has developed rather quickly, not all of my own doing though. i owe so much to guys like george for his early advice on planting techniques etc thanks mate. and to very helpful chaps like clive (ceg)Ray said:ts astonishing to see this tank has only been running 10 or 12 weeks and its come so far... Motivation to persist in my own efforts...
Totally with you there. Your set up is perfect for churning out 'scape after 'scape. You should get 3 or 4 decent 'scapes a year. And practice makes perfect, of course. Use your bigger tank for longer-term stuff maybe.saintly said:you see george ive got to get as many scapes under my belt as possible to try and home in on my scaping techniques. as james m pointed out a while back, this is just an amano copy realy and dont stand up on its own merit, or my merit rather. ive got ideas buzzing around my head at the minute and im itching to get another scape under way. new scapes and more importantly new plants. ive still only grown a handful of plants and need to expand on that if im to succeed in trying something new.
Not too bad, thanks mate. Half way now...saintly said:hope all is well out there!

Its certainly killing me! A whole week and no Henge update is unheard of. I'm not aware of any rule banning pre-publication of AGA entries? In fact some people enter the same scape in ADA and AGA in the same year...saintly said:its going to kill me not to post any more pics but ive got the other tank i suppose
Ray said:Really you want to show us how the Henge is getting on (or did going to 4 tubes cause algae and its gone to seed? )
Go on, just one more picture, you know you want to
