    @quattro Very artificial hahahaha. All man made stuff. I do aspire to have something simular one day. I might just ask for your advice one day when I feel brave enough! Really amazing looking! Love your Clown Loaches as well!!

    Ok so i think once you start scaping a tank it becomes addictive.
    So I thought it was again time to do a scape on my 5ft tank. This time i had a bit more time to do the scape and actually planned ahead.

    [​IMG]
    This is while i was taking out some plants to plant back later.

    [​IMG]
    Almost everything out.

    [​IMG]
    All the dragon rock i used

    [​IMG]
    Playing around with the wood

    [​IMG]
    Rocks and the wood

    [​IMG]
    So decided on this

    [​IMG]
    Rock to keep the wood down.

    [​IMG]
    The long waiting process

    [​IMG]
    All nice and full

    [​IMG]
    Added some plants.

    More plants to come and my fish will be added a few at a time.

    Where'd you get your wood??? :love: OMG it's AWESOME!!!

    That's one of the few things I'm still missing for my set-up.. Good driftwood..

    I must say, I am quite envious of your gorgeous looking set-up.. :blushing:

    PS.. Is it just me or does that rock in the back (on the right) look like a marmoset monkey peeking over the driftwood and plants???

    :questionmark:

    Planted some more glosso at the bottom and some monte carlo above the rock to check if my rummy noses eat it or leave it.

    @quattro

    Very nice.
    I really like the spidery type wood.
    Over here it tends to be insanely expensive if you can find it.
