    Uk, British rock with aquascapes

    Here is a scape I did a few years back, but never managed to finish. The rocks are from a quarry in N Wales. Regards, Dave.

    First Iwagumi

    It`s amazing how we all produce our first Iwagumi with rocks that will disappear. I know I did. It just seems to be something we all have to go through before we have the kahunas to use proper sized rocks the next time round. The large central rock looks ace. Dave.

    Opinions and help with 80cm 'scape

    The rocks are a big improvement, and have now become a more significant part of the scape. My reservation is with the two large pieces of wood running parallel to eachother at the same angle. I would either put the left piece at a shallower angle, or make the piece towards the centre more...

    Opinions and help with 80cm 'scape

    The wood is nice enough, and I like the way some roots reach out to the front of the tank. They will have a nice effect of disappearing down in to whatever foreground plant you choose. The rocks will almost certainly disappear once the plants become established. How about leaving a fair amount...

    Tanks with branches you've collected

    Most of the wood in this tank was collected from an almond grove in Spain. The latest tank that I am struggling with is Manzanita wood collected by Tom Barr in California, and sent over to the UK. Sorry, but there is no picture of that one. Dave

    Mr Amano's home tank!! (must see)

    I agree 100%. No one else comes close in terms of originality, productivity and consistency. I hope you are wrong on this count, as I feel the hobby is in real need of an injection of originality.

    Absolutely... I 100% agree with this. . I have toyed with ratios, etc including with photography where many of the same principles apply. There are no rules as far as I am concerned.

    a tale of 2 driftwood

    I have used wood from an Almond grove in Spain, but the wood had been dead and bleached in intense sun for a good while when I picked it up. I agree with TBRO in that your wood doesn`t look sufficiently dead and dry. I usually pick up branches that have lost all their bark. Dave.

    Here is the proof...

    This tank is now stripped down due to a house move. I had big plans for this tank in my new house, but it doesn`t appear to fit in anywhere.

    Cheers for the comments guys. glad you like it.

    60cm - Espei's Escape (preview)

    I have always thought HC and E. parvula go well together. You certainly controlled the E. parvula well. I like the way it has been used in moderation around the base of the rocks and along the horizon. 8) Such a shame that you chose to ill treat your fish with this type of scape, George. :wink:

    60cm makes a comeback

    After another week of slow decline, I have come to the conclusion that the CEC of the amazonia has resulted in it becoming tainted by the mysterious additive. I have planted some of Stu`s HM, which has slowly declined, yet the stems I left floating for the duration have remained healthy. There...

    120cm - The Crypt Eternal (preview)

    What do you think of C. undulata "broad leaf", George? I`m a big fan of the normal, narrower leafed version. Apart from using C. parva in an earlier scape, I`ve never bothered with Crypts until now. I have only used four types in my 120cm, so I have some catching up to do. Dave.

    Cheers guys. The HM is being replaced as we speak (cheers Mr Worrall).

Yeah, I`m still happy with the look of the hardscape Mark, which is what...

    I have no idea what went in there Graeme. There was no suspiscious smells or water discolouration, so I don`t think it was anything like fruit juice.

    Personally, I would like to see some wood reaching higher up in to the water column. A lot of what you currently have may well get lost in the undergrowth. A bit of hardscape bursting proudly out of dense planting can look pretty good, and create a balance between planting and hardscape. You...

    Aaron, if this was my tank, the thing that would bother is the dividing line that disconnects the right hand third of the tank from the left hand two thirds.
