Don't know why but English Lake is the most lighty, simpliest and strong aquascape I had ever seen...

Like some other mineral and biotope from your creation George...so far from Amano and from Dutch school, so not "deja vu"....sound like and english school is born....

keep up your amazing work

cheers from France
That's very kind of you to say, orchid. Merci beaucoup!

I just thought i'd say I always use this thread to impress friends and family how nice aquascaping can be and helps to draw them away from the idea of a goldfish in a bowl

George, can I just say a great big thanks for sharing your aquascaping history. You really do have a rare tallent and it's great that you can share it with us. I'd just like to say that thanks to working in the aquatics industry, I got to see your Fluval Profile at the 2009 Hagen show, and thought it was breathtaking!

Keep up the good work George!

So hard to pick a favourite! I think white cloud mountain just wins for it's elegant simplicity.

Many inspirational tanks, thanks for sharing.

Thanks, Ollie. :)

The plant you refer to is Pogostemon stellatus. It usually goes red, but stayed green in here for some reason.

Thanks George, you wouldn't know which issue this was would you? I may ask around to see if anyone has it. I really want to set up a black water tank with apistogramma and some kind of tetra.

Also in the 2nd from last picture, you and Garuf at a fluval stand do you have any better shots of the 'edge' on the table at the back? Or any more info.

Sorry to be a pain mate haha

I think shelldweller sanctuary is really special. I love it. Are those cichlids hard to care for?

Thanks all.

I'll get around to adding more 'scapes soon, as it's been over 12 months since the last update.
