Great pictures!
I really like the first one (nice deep green) :thumbup:
Thanks mate!

Really nice. Your HC is not growing in substrate at all?

Thank you! :) In this particular scape the hc is either just anchored between the rocks or growing on top of the cladophora. I did an experiment to use it as a "growing media/ anchor" and it works perfectly fine :)
The sand is always so clean or you doing some gravel cleaning some times?
I just siphon out the fish/ plants waste and the sand that is getting darker and time to time I add some more on top, to replenish.

Off-topic question, but what's the music you used in the first video? Quite unusual use of modes, which I rather like.

Also, lovely 'scape. I fancy having a go at the tall rock-work type scape soon, so seeing it as bare bones is very useful.

Hi Henry, the music was a free to use tune from the youtube library, but to be honest, don't remember the name, sorry!

Rovkwork is fun ☺ You will need a lot of rock to create a mountain or a gorge effect. I have used around 50kg of stone for this scape. Just make sure you support the stones well, so nothing can collapse.
