And one of the Cube
With the Cube I would like to see several similar twigs in front of that pile of rocks plus a few over the general are as it looks a bit bare at the moment
It looks like a stream with a natural dam wall and the logs are caught behind it.
Hi Keith, Funny that you said that Got my inspiration from a bunch of old twigs blocking part of the stream where i got the fish.And over hanging that was a bush that looked like a floating island So that's where i got the idea Plus have more twigs soaking as we speak .I am gob smacked are you a mind reader or what N-Riparuim had a look round LFS for the plant you said.But out of stock So have put on order Will update as soon as it arrivesCheers roy
NO just an old bloke that has a one good eye for what nature is, not what some want it to look like.
Nature is the best Scaper of all.
Hi Keith, Nice one Cheers roy
Hi hydrophyte,Thank you for the like Cheers roy
Hi ghostmonk, Thank you for the likeCheers roy
Hi All, Up date on the Cube DW now sinking so have seeded with moss Quick pic, Cheers roy
Just a thought
Those taller bits and pieces to me looked out of place in comparison to the rest of that design
With the aid of Photoshop I pushed/cut them down and threw a few more larger stones behind them.
Used a little moss as well BUT it still looks bare in that corner.
How would 1 or 3 low palms look ????
Just another of my crazy thoughts.
Hi Keith, The taller bits of DW at back are all glued to a stone. Was going to seed with moss and plant with some Anbias plus the floating island to hide filter at backI do like the idea of the palms will have a think about that one.Would look good next to island Lots to think about Cheers roy
It requires height and interest in that corner.
Its like walking up a big hill and when you get there you expect to see some thing BUT its not there at the moment.
Hi Keith, Well as you put it that way I get where you are coming from And going to Will cut DW and do what i can One quick Q What do you think of filter spray bar ? leave it on or take it of ? Will be below water level. One pic Cheers roy PS only way too control flow is with spray bar on
Hi All, Other tank going well bullheads are happy and now feeding on frozen blood worms. Thanks for the tip Keith Plants starting to settle in as well. Still waiting for other plant to be in stock But is on order One pic of bullhead .I love watching them Cheers roy
Its going to be practically impossible to hide that filter depending on what you are going to have in that tank.
I would be looking at the old HOB filter I had one on the 45lt and it worked perfectly.
I took all the sponges out and used filter wool that meant no mini cycles as I just replaced a little of the wool as required.
I thin strip of foam on the top stops any filter wool going into the tank.
That filter would make a perfect water fall effect.
Hi Keith, The filter was the smallest in the range. And i liked the idea that it had a spray bar Think will keep spray bar on as is only way to control flow rate I do agree that will be hard hide but will do my best Am sorting lighting out now so won't be long and will have this one up and running Waterfall what will you think of nextCheers roy
Try a black background it will not hide it but it will not stand out so much.
Hi Keith, Sounds good to me will give it a try Cheers roy
Hi Keith, Was down by the stream getting some bits and thought i would take a pic of what gave the inspiration for the Cube As you will see from pic you are SPOT ON When wife looked at pic she said my attempt at nature looked more like a beavers lodge With a bit of artistic licence the small over hanging branch Gave me the idea for floating island Thanks again for all your help top info and time Cheers roy
That looks very much like flood waters
Aquascaping is in many cases mimicking nature .
Here is a Scape done for you, the pale blue is the side of the tank.
That is rock Heaven for sure.
Hi All, Was reading Abhi thread The Ravine And see that Abhi was trying the same thing as me Cutting up a Moss ball and tying it to DW Funny how people across the world Have the same idea at the same time Well we will see how things go One pic Cheers roy
