Hi George,
Love your tanks and there is something like your own style in all of them!
I´m sure there are plenty new tanks since English Summer? I have heard something about an Iwagumi from you, cant find it anywhere.

Regards,
Jur4ik

Thanks, Jur4ik!

Yes, I've done a few 'scapes since 'English Summer' last year.

Here's a couple of my favourites -

120cm - The Crypt Eternal

Thanks!

I don't get paid to design people's tanks. I do get paid to write about and photograph tanks though!

Yes. Still representing the low-light, no-CO2, no-ferts facet of the planted tank hobby over there. I'll post some tank pictures here, though.

Re: Six years of 'scaping

I quite like them all, I do have preferences for the cleaner looking scapes such as Meadow Zephyr though.

As for the suggestions of lack of colour, I feel it takes a great deal of understanding and knowledge of plants to create light, shade, depth and flow to what is essentially one block colour. Quite often I look at peoples journals and see these amazing hardscapes become lost in a wilderness of plants which in some ways is a bit of a shame.
Very nice scapes George :thumbup:

Thanks, tel and alzak!

Soon I'll have to change it to seven years and add another bunch of 'scapes!
