Hello everybody! This is my first aquascape:
Additional info: This tank is a bit sporadic at the moment, so until I get my "tools" it is going to stay like that for now.:Blah:
AS w/powersand (used)
2 20W screw-in compact fluorescents
ALL comments and suggestions welcome! They motivate me!Boxing
How long are you leaving on your light i see your are getting some alage issues. I would group you stems in the back of the tank a little more. I like the placement of your wood however i think that wood in the front of the tank in the middle jumps out a little too much for me. How long has your tank been set up. I like your Blyxa in the frount of your tank!
Looking a tad messy at the moment... why not play around with your branches? Try to group them or form something interesting
Thank you for your input! The glosso in front has not filled in yet and the HM has not grown up in the back yet. I am going to trim soon and move things around a bit to give it a natural feel. I am also going to remove the java fern and set up a 2.5 gallon with moss. Yes, the tank is a bit messy, but its new so It is hard to tell what it is going to look like. I am hoping that the glosso will creep up over the DW in front to soften it a bit. Again thanks for your input!!!8)
Yeah, it is a little. It looks more messy because I took the photo at an angle and it really doesn't display the look I am going for. I may move the wood a tad, but it is so hard to see with all the HM in the back. Thanks for the Input!!!8)
I think you could do alot more with the wood, specifically the loose branches on the left side. Perhaps join them with your center piece wood so it comes out more naturally and brings focus to the scape.
Secondly, the plants do look a little messy and could use tighter grouping and some trimming. It's a little early but I think if you can get them growing closer together now you'll be able to train the plants to grow as you want them to in the scape. The glosso I might be weary of using because of the thick substrate grain. It might not spread well.
Other than that, it's a good start and has a lot of potential. The plants look pretty healthy and well cared for.
Thank you very much! I will see what I can do for now. I will update when I get my planting tools, probably 1-2 weeks.
Not yet. My aquascaping tools are in transit from Singapore. But my plants are growing very well and have deepened in color and size! I will update soon!
Darn should have ordered from Green Leaf Aquariums...
O, and by the way, your tank surpasses mine in beauty!
Thanks for the comment. You will get there i wanna see how well your plants are doing.
Looking much better!!! I still feel that you should group your branches together.
Much better, for the following pictures clean the crystals as really is best.
