    Well, I dont have it up yet but im planning it in my head. Its going to be some kind of tree scape with several trees and maybe a couple hills. Not too sure how its going to play out in a 10gallon tank but the way I picture it in my head, it looks pretty good. lol

    Flora
    Utricularia Graminifolia (Ground Cover/Foreground)
    Fissidens fontanus (Tied onto branches/Trees)

    Fauna
    7 Galaxy Rosbora
    2 Ottos
    Couple of Cherry Shimps

    Equipment
    DIY Filter
    24in Coralife 6700 96w Dual CF Light Fixture

    Substrate
    ADA Amazonia II or Flourtite Black
    Playsand

    Hardscape
    Rocks
    Twigs/Branches


    Of course I got the idea from FAAO with his breath taking tree scape. I going to take the knowledge everything thing I learned from the crazy biotope and try to out do my previous tank.

    Im not giving up on my biotope, cause it still needs a lot of work...just going to venture off in a differnt type of aquascape. I will start gathering all the stuff needed for this tank next month(2 weeks). I dont know if this is against the rules but I had to share lol. Ive been debating on whether to start a iwagumi or this kind of scape and I finally made the discision. So come along for the ride...I believe this is going to be a really bumpy one!

    Any suggestions or tip would be greatly appreciated!!

    i had an idea of using weeping moss on driftwood for a willow tree look. Probbly going to do that on my next nano. What are you going to use as your foreground. Micro swords would look good if the trees are tall enough

    UG is carniverous, to micro organisms, no harm to reg inverts and fish.
