Hi,
thought I would share my most recent scape.
I didn’t have a name for it as I haven’t done a journal so thought of one fast…..I guess with only two main stones :eek: it doesn’t conform so in this instance, ‘two’s a crowd’….
This was supposed to be a fill in scape (hence no journal) but it has been a little awkward and has only just settled 5 weeks in. Perhaps I should retrospectively journal it to show it’s development, problems and recovery.

Still a little filling in to do and some shaping of the h’ra, but much happier with it now than a couple of weeks ago :lol:

Looks fantastic! What kind of a background are you using there?
Hi, thanks, it’s an ADA lightscreen with blue to white graded film.


Really good Ady, lovely 3D perspective in that photo!
cheers, I think the lightscreen helps with that effect.

Damn son, that’s a nice little scape!

Be sure to replace the rotala with a grass at some point, it has real classic amano bones.
Is it slate or similar? Reminds me of the rocks I collected in North Wales.

I love the artwork above the tank in case you get sick of looking at the tank :p Must be your fish corner.
Ha yeah, it is really, I’ve got fish art and an image of my previous tank. I’ll be adding to the pictures with more images of my scapes….

Very nice rocks! Glad you decided it deserved a journal!
Yeah love the rocks, great shape, colour and texture. Haven’t created a journal yet…..

thanks Garuf, I think if I were to do that I’d need to add another larger stone front right and perhaps fully carpet the scape. I’ve trimmed the rotala now for a better more representative shape for this scape….

The stone is ‘wild rhino stone’ it’s really beautiful with nice softer shapes and fine detailed textures.
