So my favorite LFS (www.ecoarium.pt) found me a unique old bonsai tree...
Looking at that, i realized that this beautiful piece could be almost 80% of a new aquascape with the right rocks and plants! :)
Hands on work and here i introduce my recent aquascape "Om Shanti".

Tank: 45cm*45cm*35cm height
Pressurized co2
Plants:
hemianthus callitrichoides
eleocharis acicularis
eleocharis parvula
marsilea hirsuta
singapore moss
java moss
fissidens fontanus

Pictures!

The tanks was setup on 2015-04-12 and had 2 weeks of dry start.
Last Sunday (2015-04-26) was flooded.
some macros of that day

Yesterday 2015-05-03 - 7 days after flooded, things couldn't be better, all growing very fast and algae kept at bay with a few normal diatoms on the rocks
