I tore it down on impulse, and binned all the plants; they were in really poor health after their ordeal in the previous scape. Plus version one didn't really hold my attention for long, it was okay but basicHows the scape going @Tim Harrison
It will be an Iwagumi mostly using mini HG and MC. I've had version two in mind for some time but was held back by trying to recycle the plantsI like this new version! Would be a nice iwagumi
Yes, in this case I had to. I used superglue and cigarette filters. One or two of the rocks would be unstable otherwise; they're at fairly precarious angles to create the look I was after. It's still not exactly how I envisaged it. but as always it's a compromise between the ideal and what's possible with the hardscape I have.do you glue rocks together ?
No such thing as a silly question The answer is both, but mainly to raise the scape. It's amazing how much adding substrate changes the look and feel, and it's easy to loose tension.Silly question: is the polystyrene tile just to protect the glass while you slide the rocks around for the perfect position, or is it intended to add height and you plan to fill the tank like that?
Haha, thanks Ray. Yes it's an RGB LED strip with a dial to alter the colour. I can't quite stretch to an ADA light screenAt the risk of turning myself into some sort of Tim Harrison fanboy - very nice indeed! Is the purple glow emanating from the crack of doom a short RGB LED strip down the back of the tank?
Thanks Ady, I was also thinking about adding a few S. repens plants and E. acicularis and maybe some E montevidensis in the back central corners to give a bit more contrast and extra some height.Love it, mc and hg will suit it a treat
I'll give it a go later on, see what I come up withCan we have a top down view as well?
