    I love tintagel, there's loads of really nice places that way, it's a shame it's not as friendly as it used to be, too much resentment from the locals that "emmits" have come and bought all the homes for holiday homes and things like that. Still, the scenery is stunning for the large part and you don't need people for that!

    I've studied in Plymouth and I must admit that the coast of Devon and Cornwall is absolutely stunning! Dartmoor National Park is also a must see and truly inspiring...

    I remember seeing this tank when you posted it earlier, it's nice to see it living detail

    I wanted to share something my friend showed me, an aquascaped tank with gundam figures placed inside. It's funny because that's what my friend was always trying to get me to do, to let him make a figurine robot to place in my fish tank haha. But anyways, I'll let the link talk for me:

    Haaaa! It'd be so much better if they'd cleaned the algae off.
    Reminds me a lot of the diaramas from gundam modelers.

    I can't wait for pacific rim myself. The one or two gundams I've seen are great and I'm a big fan of Del Toro.

    I must post some more on GEAMS. I've been mighty distracted as of late and haven't really kept up with what's going on lately.

    I read about this or what I assume was this not that long ago and it's an algae bloom that's caused it. Crazy though isn't it!

    It always reminds me of when I worked at Alton Towers and the red stained water they have in the nemesis flooded and died the river in the valley below it red for like 3 miles or something crazy.

    Really nice light for a nano, something about that pseudo art neuvo look that I always looks super classy. Not sure about the bowl, I bet its a PITA to keep clean.

    Beautiful and inspiring. Makes me want to tie some moss down on my driftwood for that stoic...ancient...untouched by humanity look. I'm sure there's better words, but you know what I mean haha. I'm guessing java moss is a no go, so... christmas moss?

    Also, is there a certain type of light that makes tanks look that blue-ish color? I have a t5 with colormax and 6700k bulbs and it makes my tank look very... yellow :p

    I love the lighting on this, it looks very blue and ... misty? I dunno.

    I also like this. At the top I feel like the lighting color might be yellow-ish like my tank, but when it gets lower it gets that slightly bluish-white shade on the plants. Maybe it has a lot to do with the background. I love that mysterious misty color. So I guess I want that same-ish color for my tank, but how do I go about getting that? I have a big penguin emperor hang on filter nearly flush with the back of the tank :p

    Yeah, I find some "daylight" tubes to be very yellow that's why I never use two of the same type tube unless they're realllllly nice to start with. The "bluer" light is likely something like a 9000 or 10000k but personally I wouldn't use that on it's own as they make planted tanks look a bit washed out in my experience. That particular tank is on this forum somewhere as mini fissiden mountain or something like that... Perhaps he says what his light is there.

    I'm always reluctant to say anything about humanity not touching something, I don't know where you are (update your location, please ;) ) but in the UK over 90% of habitats are created by human hand be it ancient or otherwise, very, very little of what we think of as natural is natural. I suspect that woodland to be in Japan though you never can be too sure. Christmas moss would be a start, weeping and Taiwan would also work well, as would f fontanus... some of the rarer tiny mosses etc too. Depends on the scale you work at ultimately.

    The other thing is the misty colour could easily be due to the colour of the glass and the camera light if any as well as clever choice of background.
