    Now this is my dream tank...without the fish. I only love planted tanks. But i might have to plant sections...this might take up alot of money to plant :)

    Yeah it’s very deep. Luckily they chose low maintenance plants (stems would be a nightmare). Wonder if they do gravel vacs at all...perhaps with some special extention?

    I like the minimalist style of this one, without seeming too sparse

    Very simple but not. Spider wood is just so versatile than you can make the impossible come true. Very, very nice scape.

    The little ADA palludarium at the beginning is stunning!

    2 weeks update on the Tropica Easy Plants tank. This is such a good idea!

    Seeing as paludarium/riparium/aqua-terrariums are getting so popular:

    Was about to post this - nice job from them as always. The rockwork is amaaaazing but gets largely lost. For a heavily planted setup, seems a waste, but still a very cool final result.

    Stunning, thanks for sharing!
    Yep 5 months in one can’t tell that it was made using these amazing, gigantic stones. Cheaper option would be to stack smaller stones and fill in with epiphytes.

    But they certainly made a statement. At first I chuckled and thought it was an overkill to use half a soccer team to set up one tank. But with the size and weight of those stones, and the risk of shattering that very $$$$ tank, I got the point.

    Stumbled upon SteveScapes via Green Aqua channel. Will be watching more of his stuff. Ranked 15th in IAPLC 2019.

    Does anyone still keep aquascaping books? Or does everyone just Google now?
