Congratulations zig! Custom tank? What are the full specs?
Number 2 is my favourite 3 and 4 should have placed 1st. 1st looks like one of those pictures that they have in cheap restaurants where the waterfall looks like it's moving.

Not at all impressed with the top 5 TBH except for no.3. Thats superb... only because its a design I though about a couple of weeks back to myself :rolleyes: Like a bonsai on a cliff side.
Love zig's v2. much more 'hard' looking with the stone coming right up to the front. really cool.

I like rank 0011. Also Cliff Hui rank 004 but ive always admired his scapes.
Big Congratulations to Peter Kirwan rank 0015.

I'm envious, I was hoping on ordering a 60x40x50 from greenmachine but it has to wait till I have a real job and a house of my own... *day dreams*
Congratulations again, do you know when you can show us the pictures?

Well i just been on creative aquascape union and some superb pics and detail of the winning tank... Its actually pretty amazing.
You have to register and follow a link from an interview with the winner.

Why do they need you to register :twisted: its not like its a forum or anything like that, didn't register maybe later. I have seen some pictures already, one thing that struck me from looking at them was some of the outer stones do not look right IMHO, there is a stone to the left and a stone to the right hand side that look out of place compared to the others, the centre section is superb though. Now alls you have to do is combine that with a mountain scene and you could be onto a winner :lol:

I think the winner is a stunning tank. How many people would have the balls to hardscape a 300cm like that.

I have now seen close up photos of this tank and its trully amazing, its based on the Chinese mountain ranges, very nice indeed. But I still think there are better in the top 10! but thats my opinion.

certainly not the women...errr, wrong thread :lol:

:lol:

Considering this in the the gallery section I think it is amazing the number of pages this thread has got to without a single pic being posted in it yet!
