    Hi,

    Great scape. I like the way you've made the substrat transition and how you builded up the red moor wood.

    You do have great skill, the way the tank is setup was just magical.

    When I saw the pics, top to bottom, I thought, no, not another path based aquascape. :) but the transition is so perfect, so rich in detail.

    The wood is also placed meticulously, great attention to placement and the way it conveys a three dimensional form to the picture.

    Really amazing setup, will look tenfold when full grown.

    Nicely done! The driftwood is great with the moss and the substrate looks very natural. Also nice to see some large echinodorus, not used so much in scaping these days...

    Hello, I found the hardscape very successful.
    However Echinodorus macrophylus a little big in this layout.

    Good work

    Echinodorus and Bolbitis is expected to grow over the aquarium. That is why I chose these plants.

    I love this layout.

    A brilliant use of wood, blending in with the gravel, is really inspiring to me.

    Mind asking why is your background yellowish in colour? Is it due to the water or your wall? It would be nice with some oyama black or white background since your scape is very beautiful.

    Cheers

    Really like the plant layout, those Echinodorus macrophylus are in great shape.

    How do you keep them in such great condition? Mine keep burning, maybe the lights are too close to it.

    It is a fantastic tank.

    Take a video! :)

    maybe the fan blowing across helps to keep them really humid...
