Got bored from staying home because of the Covid-19...
So here is a little mountain scape I made today (31x21x26cm), it’s going to be an wabikusa for some of the cuttings coming from my bigger tank. ;-)
i just planted some Chinese seeds to add an easy carpet.

Hello! It's been a while (~10 years) since I've done one of these, upgraded from a 75P (all my previous journals using that tank are are on the plantedtank.net which is where I used to post) and a hand made cabinet, to a 90P and an ADA cabinet, because I'm...
I've finally got all the materials needed to begin scaping my new setup with a Flexi mini scape tank & light.
I've never really tried to aquascape with both wood & stone, my previous attempts with both being somewhat dull rocks & standard drift wood so I thought that with this new tank...
Hi Guys! Just started an account here after a long time of lurking around. I want to contribute to the forum by sharing my second aquascape journey.
Most recent update:
In july this year I started with my first ‘aquascape’. It was a 30 liter cube with some easy plants and it currently looks...
Beginner aquascaper here and I'm looking for any advice tips on starting my first scape. Here in Georgia we have a lot of sloped hills with this plant called kudzu with exposed rock and that's what I'm gaining some of my inspirations from. I have an idea of what I want but not on how to exactly...
Hello Aquascapers, I have come back from a long retirement from this hobby and decided to rescape my dull tank.
My current idea for the scape:
-use a mix of weeping moss and spiky moss on the lava rocks
- use flame moss for the rear of the tank
- have a mix of monte carlo and DHG in the front...
My first tank but way to small so I bought a bigger one. Maybe you like to see my first attempt ;).
Have a look at my Youtube channel :)

As a great fan of Middle-earth stories and the mystery tales about the Land of Shadows,
Orcs, Trolls and mighty wizards, gained my inspiration and decided work trough it in my next project.
The tricky part will be the composition. The goal is to work towards "negative composition" with the...

Im Finally here! Ready start my first journal of what should be my first ever respectable effort at an Aquascape.
I made my decision of which tank to buy after seeing Ed Gercog’s tank at Aquatics Live. I swiftly went with a TMC Signature 60x45x30. With Lighting I took Inspiration...
After being a avid follower of every bodies journals and learn so much, I thought it was high time I started a journal myself.
I've had a few attempts at putting a scape together in the pass but none have really turned out very well and typically result in me tearing down and...
New journal time. :)

After a grueling 7 months (for various reasons) I am finally in a position to start putting my new tank together.
I had originally planned to go for a wood and rock Island layout, because I only have one 1000ND Grobeam Unit so I figured there wouldnt be enough light spread on a...
I've recently re-scaped my TMC Signature so I thought I'd start a new journal on here.
Not really a groundbreaking aquascape - re-using the moss-covered Manzi from my previous two layouts that you can see here - George's TMC Signature | Page 38 | UK Aquatic Plant Society
This is a new scape I've just done to replace "Horatios Cave" which has now been stripped down.
The scape is sponsored by Tropica, who kindly supplied the plants.
For some time I've wanted to do a scape with Seiryu Stone and Manzanita Wood, with a sand foreground and centre section, so this...
thought it about time i started my new journal....title tbc.
After recently purchasing a 100cm x 50cm x 50cm Natural Aquario rimless, braceless optiwhite tank with light unit and stand from fellow member Radik via the forum sales section, i thought id share my experiences.
Heres the new tank setup after I set it up at Christmas. Further pics to follow on its progress.
The plants, plant substrate and ferts have kindly been sponsored by Tropica for this tank so it should be appearing on their website at some point.
Hardscape: Seiryu Stone, Manzanita Wood
I thought i'd have a mess around with some hardscape this afternoon, ready for my new scape. The old scape will be shut down next week and i'm away on holiday for a week. I will have my plants on order over the week when i'm away and will be planting on the Friday when i get back. I have the...
Inspired by a recent mountaineering expedition to Snowdonia.
This is my third attempt at an Iwagumi, and I think it has potential. I think it's the strongest use of hardscape I've used in any design so far.
This dry run with the hardscape has been set up in a 60x30x30cm, but I will be...
Hey guys, took delivery of some stuff from TGM, and included was a box of Seiryu, I already had another box bought from a member here a few weeks ago and whilst im waiting for the tank to come from NA/FreshWaterShrimp I thought I would attempt to create a hardscape, at first I was a bit baffled...
after learning many lessons (some of them harsh) from the 1 year 'Dragons Crypt' journal, ive started a new scape and thought id share it with you all again. Although my first planted venture has been a great learning experience i still feel there is much to learn, so will be hoping...
