Hi all

Please post your favourite driftwood dominated aquascapes! (I'm shamelessly seeking inspiration for my next 60cm layout!)

Out of courtesy, please also provide a link to the original source.

Re: Post your favourite ever driftwood layout!

I've always loved this, but there are lots of others I can't think of right now :) Maybe not as dominated as you want, but I likes it anyway!

Tom that an amazing tank! Really inspirational.

Garuf that 1st one is really cool, the wood on the front right looks like a rock, really cool shape.

I cant find a picture of mine :(

It was on here and it was a foreign member who had a 90x45x45 ADA style tank with custom light hanger for an MH which inspired me to get mine made. It was a wood, bolbitus and moss scape if anyone recognises it

Stu, that's my favorite as well - knew exactly which one you meant when you described it.

Re: Post your favourite ever driftwood layout!

Thanks, guys. Some real gems there - a couple I've not seen before.

The Luis Moniz 'scape is a real beauty - one of my all-time favourites too.

I think I will give the open sand and moss domination a try. No rocks perhaps. Probably Manzi.

The 4th 'scape is the 5th 'scape before water and other plants have matured... ;)

Re: Post your favourite ever driftwood layout!

I actually prefer it before it's matured.
I'll try and find a link to it, there's a gallery of nothing but amano's wood scapes on a flikr I've seen.

Re: Post your favourite ever driftwood layout!

This sort of thing may be worth a 'sticky' but for each style of layout? Almost like a library/compilation of inspiration.

Neil that Norbert Sabat tank is lusty!

Plus 1 for a sticky for inspiration on wood layouts :D
