    Hi all,

    Almost 10 years ago I created a low-maintence aquascape - mainly ferns, Anubis and crypts.

    Today I took the final shot of my latest 'scape - mainly ferns, Anubis and crypts.

    Note the difference. Mainly use of hardscape, open foreground and more complex textures.

    I thought it was an interesting compare and contrast... Interesting the richness of the greens in the first photo too. I was using 2 x 6500K T8. Second 'scape - 6 x 18w LED 6500K.

    Cheers,
    George

    they are both nice scapes pal, colours are far better under the T8's though. Time to see something more challenging from you mate....UG iwagumi maybe :p

    Both are gorgeous... My personal favorite tend to be the older one. How long did you maintain it?

    Totally see the progress and agree. I'm usually struggling with long leaves of valisneria stopping the water circulation. Had to adjust the scape&trimm the leaves.

    Just noticed you had no problems with long leaves in the second scape at all.
