    It would be very interesting to learn more about that tank.

    i like that driftwood stickin out in between the rocks. a bit more sharper edges when you tweak the rocks with substrate its gona look good. also try to bank up the substrate as high as you can at the back to give it that amano swag. just my 2 cents bro. other than that i think its gona work out well for your intended setup.

    Awesome! Thanks for the feedback! "Bank up the sub.." the slope thingy he does where it's higher in the back and low in the front?

    I'm wondering if I should make it a 180 view, but the way you see in the pic with the back being the panel closest to the pillar.

    yes thats right. it adds a lot of depth and visual impact aswell from the contrast of colors.

    Thank you for posting that link, somewhere on ASW there are many of those photos.

    A 180 view can look fantastic only concern no where to hide and not so good looking pieces to the back.

    All the filtration how are you going to conceal it?

    Re that piece of wood at the moment it does nothing for me but when finished and fully established it could look totally different.

    I might go lily pipes to take care of that. The less interesting rocks in the back can get overgrown with moss or the smaller leaved Buce I have. Of course, patience will be the key to this tank as it will be a slow grow.

    The piece of wood will be covered with Buce as well. It's just a "Stand" persay, once the scape matures, it will look great. I have a vision!

    So I tore it down to dip the stones. They came out amazing and I got an idea for an epic scape. Stay tuned...

    I'm pretty satisfied with this one. I can envision where and how the Buce will grow.

    the hardscape looks more "functional" for the buce setup.

    Bingo!

    That's what I was going for. I have a few of them on their own little anchor, but some will be glued into the hardscape along with Moss.

    Thanks for the feedback!
