    Hi folks!

    Longer time nothing new from me... I was busy and there was a lot of work to do. But two weeks ago I finaly started a new layout in my 90x45x45cm opti white tank. I used 60kg of dragonrock (not dragonstone / ohko), also known as OK Rock Nr.2, to create this mountain scape. The substrate is sand only, there is no soil in the tank. Last weekend the layout got planted, I used the following plants:

    - HCC
    - MMC
    - Eleocharis pussila
    - Bucephalandra "Brownie"
    - Bucephalandra "Broad wavy"
    - Anubia nana "Pangolino"
    - Crepidomanes malabaricum
    - Riccardia spec.
    - Vesicularia "Triangel Moos"
    - 2 unknown mosses from India

    For the first 4 weeks the tank will start by Drystart, so that the mosses can nicly grow onto the rocks.
    Here are some pictures. I hope you like them ;)

    I can see you have planned and spent many hrs getting every detail to perfection.

    Please keep us updated on your Aquascapes progress.

    Hi guys!

    Thanks a lot!

    I was really up to create a new scape. Fortunately I had these awesome stones so it was even more fun to do this layout. And of course I tried to have an eye on the details...

    Because there is so much detail in your aquascape you are continually seeing a different point of interest. As it ages new interest areas will appear.

    Andy, wonderful sense of scale in this layout. It feels immense. Although, I cannot help but think something is missing...maybe a Heineken in the background would add just the right touch ;)

    :ROFLMAO: What do you think that I needed to create that Hardscape Shawn? Of course there is the spirit of one or two beers in it... :D

    Beautiful layout. Must have cost you some time to set this one up, but the composition was worth it. Curious to see how this one will evolve. Great job so far.
