    It took about 2 weeks but we cleared out the ADA 90p and rescaped it with a new hardscape layout that is wayyyy more aggressive than the last. This new main rock is HUGE!!! If we let it stand up straight with no tilt, it would stick out the top of the tank. The plans for now are just a low lawn of a mix of HC, Monte Carlo, and Elatine Hydropiper. We'll also be dry starting this tank since we've had great success with the ADA 45f. Plants will also be added before we fill the tank with water on the plateaus of the rocks to create a layered look thereby creating more depth to the scape itself. Might consider throwing in some e. tenellus micro to break up the rocks a bit when the lawn grows in... we just have to see. The hills in the back will be higher once we get to planting.







    lol....

    We had some free time to do a Quick Scape in one of our empty tanks. Its about a 10g tank with 2 pieces of spider wood and 4 pieces of Ryuoh stone to hold the scape together. It looks really nice and can work for high tech stem plants or low light ferns and anubias/buce. Let us know what you think! the scape took about 20mins to put together.









    Here's finally an update on our ADA 45f dry start thats closing in on 3 months now. The UG is doing great and we added a second LED stripe thats not shown in the photos to speed up growth which also means more misting. Sorry for the lack of updates on this tank because you'll notice that it's been moved to our dining table where the duel nano used to be. So things like napkins get in the way of the tank for photos.

    Hey guys, we're back at it again with another 36CM tank because the lady decided to buy yet another Betta which I don't mind at all. We decided to use all wood only and chose 4 Manzanita twigs which we pre-soaked and boiled for about 3 days and nights.



    We secured them together as one piece with metal ties so that it wouldn't fall apart during planting, maintenance or from the flow of the filters.




    Next we tied Taiwan Mini Moss along with Anubias Nana Pangolino to the wood to fill in the unnatural looking gaps and cuts. Pangolino is even smaller than Petite and was available in tissue culture!




    All the tissue culture plants we got which includes: LUDWIGIA REPENS 'SUPER RED' , ROTALA SP 'PINK' , MYRIOPHYLLUM SP MINI GUYANA, HYDROCOTYLE TRIPARTITA , ALTERANTHERA REINECKII "MINI" , ELEOCHARIS BELEM , MICRANTHEMUM UMBROSUM , and the Anubias



    We set the wood and ADA substrate layers in place and decide how to plant around it



    The background was planted first with LUDWIGIA REPENS 'SUPER RED' as the main background plant for... well, super red.



    Then the mid ground for reds and a splash of lighter green from HYDROCOTYLE TRIPARTITA and ALTERANTHERA REINECKII "MINI" as accent




    Finally the foreground of feathery ELEOCHARIS BELEM to soften the overall look of this planted nano tank.



    A little cloudy after we set it up along with the temporary filter. We'll have clear photos soon.



    Here's the Betta it houses and his name is Butter.


    A preview of our next Quick Scape with Manzanita Wood and Ryuoh Stone



    Stay Tuned!

    Loving that 10g scape! great photos too. I would like to see a shallower sandbed touching the glass but that's just my preference. What kind of sand are you using? And do you have a link to buy the tool set you have?

    Continuing on our updates... here's a few photos of the new TV stand nano tank. We added more plants to it yesterday and today but we'll have those to post for another day.




    Beautiful tissue culture Buce that was added to this tank:


    And stem plant growth is doing great!



    After seeing our planted tanks, a good friend of ours asked us to scape one for her so we put together a nano 2g low tech.





    Plants include Bolbitus, Java Fern narrow leaf, Java Moss, Anubias Petite.

    As a bonus, we used Alder Cones as part of the scape and also to lower the PH of her tap for her betta.
