    Hi there :D, my name is Sarah and I'm new to the forum, currently undertaking my first serious aquascaping expediton. To be brief for now, this scape has been a long time in the making/planning. Inspired by the yellow mountains in China, I collected all the rocks myself from local creeks.

    Here's the concept (inspired by yellow mnts):

    Suggestions/critiques of scape? I know it is very basic as I am still waiting for the tank to arrive soon (18 inch cube rimless/braceless/supportless). More specs to come as hardware arrives :)

    Wow you've collected some nice rocks there ey!

    I would keep the Hc seperated from the rest.. Let it flow..

    Thanks ruson! I collected the main stone years ago, and it took many collecting trips to find ones that matched. It must be an unusual stone for where I am anyway.

    How would you suggest keeping the HC seperated?

    In the corner it is displayed surrounded with hair grass if im correct. (in the simulation I mean) So just have that area solely with Hc.. The hair grass will also sprout on places where you actually dont want it to gro sometimes..

    Ah I see what you mean. Probably a confusing sketch!

    To make the idea more clear, I was playing with an idea I got from this:

    I thought of the possibility of making extreme foreground mountains to frame the bg, perhaps using small pieces of slate on the front panel and placing flame moss on top to immitate a forest. I'm not sure what it may turn out like but if I don't like it I can just take it out with no problems :) .

    Picked up my new tanks today from Michael at aquarium and petland southport. As always I'm thrilled with the craftsmanship, they are total eye candy!
    Both tanks are rimless/braceless/supportless and have all excess silicone cut out. One is an 18 inch cube and the other is 30 x 18 x 12. The cube will be set up first, but I will have to wait till my 8x3 goes till I can move them into my room. Can't wait to start setting them up!!
    Enjoy the pics!
