It`s way too early to reveal this scape ( one day old), which represents the third reincarnation of this tank, but I would appreciate any advice out there. I ran the Riccia scape to destruction to see far how I could push the Riccia for future reference. I am sad to see it go, but I will do another Riccia based scape, I am sure. Lifting the rocks in to this tank was a pretty nerve wracking job, to say the least. I am still playing around with smaller rocks at the front, and intend to have a sandy foreground. Essentially, HM and HC are going to be growing in and around all the lower rocks, softening the current stark appearance of the mid and foreground rocks. Getting the pruning right will be a real test for me(wish I had some UKAPS pruning scissors ). Getting the "flow" of the greenery around the rocks will be key, along with how much rock remains in view, I think. I am not happy with the lower left hand side. These rocks look a bit too just plonked in at the moment, leaning against eachother the way they do, but HM growing over and around this area will improve the look, hopefully. Cascading all the way down the left hand side of the largest rock will be HC, some of it spilling out down the front of the rock. This is a problem area during water changes, as the lowered water surface washes the Eco complete away. Once the HC is firmly rooted, this problem will hopefully disappear. Due to the current relatively low plant mass, I have floated a lot of Dwarf riccia from my 60cm, along with some HM cuttings. The photo was a bit rushed, and the whole set up looks a bit stark and unruly, but once the plants are sorted and I have a white background on, it should brighten up a lot. The O2 bubbles of my Riccia scape looked amazing of an evening, when it was backlit, so the target for me is to produce a better looking scape than that one. Fingers crossed! Dave.
