    Hello, I'm a newbie here, sorta. I got a bit of money for Christmas, which will be used towards a cube, 18" at 25 gallons (approx 45 cm at 95 l). This will be my first "real" aquascaping endeavor, since slowly over the last year I added plants to an existing 10 gallon aquarium. But for this new tank, I want to start things right.

    For the most part I only see nano cubes, and all other inspiration I've gathered seems to work best with a tank that is longer and less...cube-y. Does anyone have any ideas? (preferable with pictures)

    Thanks! 8)

    That is awesome! The power is in its simplicity. Like it! The rockwork is amazing, plant choice clever. Everyone can see it is a top aquascaper's work. ;)

    What size is the tank? 10 / 20 / 30 from Dennerle?

    I really like your second scape Shadow. The rocks are perfectly positioned and the green hue seems to bring out the tank more. :)

    Both the nano are beautiful.
    Placement of rocks in the second nano is superb..

    Although I'm a newbie in this field, I just like the way people create the perfect aquascape by combining the use of plants and rocks. For me, size or shape is not an issue and whether it turns out to be a rectangular type or a cube, things are just fine. I think shadow provided a perfect example on how things could have worked out.

    Agreed, but I always like to have a little inspiration before I dive into a project. :D
