    Hi,

    I've done a selection of my old layouts since I start in the Aquascaping hobby.
    Some of these layouts aren't new for you, but there are others that I think that I never shared...

    Please feel welcome to criticise!

    :)) I think that most of us that start in the hobby around 2000/02 experimented the globe! :Toofunny: who didn't put the hand in the air!!!
    There wasn't so much information like now...

    So, What are you waiting for? :time:

    Show us your first globe :-p

    Ps.For your information I still have it at home :D

    Very nice collection of photos FAAO, personally I really like the 120L Lowtech Discus tank, I would really like to setup a tank just like that some day.

    You know, I won't try to describe the level of awesomeness of your tanks (Well, excluding the fishbowl) beacause if I did I would be quite frankly very, very stupid, because it is not possible!

    You should make it into a Wabi Kusa! A bowl would be a really cool looking Wabi Kusa if you got it right, which if anyone can you can!

    Nice idea! Keep up the good work because your scapes are getting better and better - you have worked out your own style over the years. Maybe I should start a similar thread?... ;)

    Absolutely amazing stuff. This is why I consider FAAO to be my biggest inspiration for aquascaping! :)

    Thank you for sharing this with the forum. A treat for the eyes and a great accomplishment. My favorite of course is the goldfish bowl scape. LOL

    The ones that first caught my attention when I came into the hobby were 'Beyond the limits' and 'Syrah'. I didn't know they were the same person back then because I saw them on different forums ;) but I loved the clean, simple look with the crispness, depth and 'mood' that the clear backgrounds gave.

    Also love your new round boulders for the very same reasons. lol

    Keep pushing the boundaries Felipe.
