I was thinking about this topic a little bit more as I was looking through the Aquascaping Showcase. You know something I haven't seen besides a full devoted aquascape to toninas species, is a barren type aquascape. What do I mean by that? Well, I'm picturing a desert type aquascape or something similar. An aquascape that may consisting of all sand with high valleys, with maybe a few Eriocaulons or Downoi plants poking out of the ground. Thousands of people visit the Grand Canyon in Arizona for it's beauty and as far as I know it has limited plant life and the beauty of the area lies in the barren canyons. Has this been done before? If not, should we explore aquascaping into this direction and mimic something like this using planted aquariums? Maybe a new style can develop from it? -John N.
