Re: saintly's "The Miracle Mire"

Driftwood dominated layouts are known as 'Ryoboku'. The ADA gallery is full of them. Here's another -



I really like them.

I totally empathise with your desire to create new stuff. So many ideas, so little time... That's why I have my 60cm 'play tank' and my bigger longer-term display tank.

So it shows that your scape could pretty high in the ADA 2009 ;)

nice thought aaron, but i dont think it would score so high. of course there's a long way to go, i suppose its all down to the appearance of the stems and how successful i am in trimming them.

ive seen that one george, one of my faves.completely obscure wood arrangement. hat off to the guy that put that wood in to an empty tank and thought "that looks good"...imagine it with no plants....now that's foresight ;)

maybe when i've got the other 3 tanks up and running i may push this one to it's limits.

It won't be a proper Saintly journal without weekly photos!

...i think it would be possible to completely cut out the stems and be left with a different look scape all together

I have had my doubts about the stems and overall effect on the shape of this aquascape......mentioned it a while ago. :idea:

The IAPLC is becoming a PITA for people not showing their tanks anymore.

Re: saintly's "The Miracle Mire"

tanks looking stunning saintly, true genius in there :D

Ive never understood the no pics rule for ada entries. is it to keep their exclusivity? (if i spelt that ok)

You can still post pics, just no full tank shots.

well thast me out then :?

No way mate, this is all initial stages shots.
Just don't think you should post any full shots once it starts to mature.

I posted a full tank shot of my hardscape... if they dont allow me to enter my final 'scape because of me posting a full tank shot then they gonna get an angry Jay knocking on the ADA Niigata door :mad:

Hear Hear! This is becoming a secret society. All our top aquascapers are working in secret. Instead of living vicariously through the journals of others I have to actually look at my own tank :wideyed:

Dear Diary, performed another trim today. Looks great. Told wife not to open the curtains. Only 132 days until the IAPLC.

Saintly, this is just not the same without the photo's. In the old days the above posts would have had before and after shots. If we have a whip round how much money do you want NOT to enter the IAPLC? :lol:
