    Scape inspired by George farmer

    Iíve had this 17 gallon Mr. Aqua rimless tank. I donít really know the dimensions as of right now, but when I find out, Iíll make sure to update the thread. Some of you have seen this tank but with a layout that was someone bland and boring. I tried to find something that I liked about it but never got it. I saw a video of George farmer scaping a Nature Style Aquascape and I got so inspired that I knew what I wanted to do. I used seiryu stone and one big piece of spider wood. I tried boiling this bad boy but it didnít really fit... I soaked it and tried to water log it in boiling water & super hot water but it still floated.
    I got really anxious to put the wood in, so I glued it to a rock (luckily the wood already had a base) I covered it with anubias nana and java fern. Foreground plants are glosso, hair grass, and Monte Carlo, and maybe some crypt prava. Behind the wood and tree is a mixture of rotala that I did a heavy planting because of my gouramis. My plan is to plant the other side of the rocks with the same foreground plants. I can try and link the video that I used as inspiration. Here are the finished scape pics.
    I will continue to update this thread and post more pics after it grows in. Thanks for reading

    Hereís an update; most of the plants are doing just great from being moved around. I noticed some of the leaves of the anubias were dying off, but I read somewhere that theyíre super sensitive when moved around a lot... new growth will come. The picture above is a shot of the whole tank. Iím going to try and get a more carpet affect using some glosso from 1-2-3 tropica tissue culture or maybe even buy dwarf hair grass from petsmart (I like their tissue culture)


    Out of the whole tank, I think the a.r mini really stands out a lot. Iím trying to get more ďredĒ plants to bring out the contrast with the black background and green lush plants in the front. So far I have that and the red tiger lotus!
    These last few pictures are just close ups. Thanks for reading
