    Hi there!

    I wanted to show you my current projekt, hope you like it. The photo is isn't the best. Next time it will be better.

    The tank sizes 40x28x25cm, total volume is 28l. The lighting is self made with 2x9W G23 lamps, to circulate the water there is just a little pump with 150l/h in action. Pressurized CO2, daily fertilization.

    My english isn't perfect so i'll not write down here everything about the hardscape, plants, and so on. If there are questions just ask, i'll do my best to answer them.

    hey andy,

    a nice scape you have there :113: the right side is stunning, even if i m not a big fan of those single tree scapes. the rock in front of the right background is amazing too, it creates a good depth. on the left side i can see a spider leg, is there a monster spider coming around the corner in the stream? ;) anyway i miss something on the left side. maybe it s about how the substrate was sloped, but don t mind the overall look is really cool :proud:

    This it what I see when I start looking at your Aquascape it looks interesting plenty of things to slowly look at.

    Then there is the LH side sorry to me it spoils the total Aquascape.

    very well done!! Trees aren't easy but you have done a great job with it and its surrounding scape. Also well done on perspective and depth!!

    Thanks for your replies!

    @Flo
    I really had to search for your "spider leg" but i've finaly found it. Scary...:%3

    @Keith
    I think you mean the left side (LH side?). Yeah, maybe you're right. The right side also appeals much more to me, but i think the left side is upgradable. In the beginning of the scape i've thougt about pulling down the hill on the left, but i wanted to give it a chance.

    Add a rock or two on the left. Could balance out the right.

    Saw the spider leg too and it gave me me the heebee-jeebies...
    :-SS

    Never saw somebody keeping underwater spiders (Argyroneta aquatica) in a tank yet - this would be something new... :-"


    Gorgeous scape!

    In the back- or the foreground? I'm not shure, if more stones in the background would fit. First i'll try to draw the attetion to the existing stones by trimming the plants.

    @Ev
    Hi Ev! Nice to meet you here.
    Believe me... i'm not going to keep any spiders under water. ;)

    why not? try to get some underwater spider :D that would be something total different ;).

    my first thought was the same like yours. flat down the left side, but lets see how this side will look after a trim.

    This is Fontinalis antipyretica var. gigantea. A fast and easy growing moss.

    Hi there!

    Today the plants got trimmed. Know you can see much more hardscape, it's better now for my opinion. The photo is a little bit overexposed and the water is bleared left, but i think it's ok.

    Hey Andy!

    It's a little more than only "o.k." :rock:
    Looks very naturally and light, plants are healthy.
    The two hours trimming today was worth it, great job.

    Can you tell me, when your tank will be alone at home?:D

    cheers
    Eva
