I think with the rocks will look good that big. You don't see rocks that big that often.
Thanks! I hope so.
I see what you're going for with the drawing, but you don't have the space to get that feel. Once you crop it down to the actual tank size (and water depth) it's going to look more like this. (attachement)
Sweet pre-vis drawing though. It's always good to have a plan!
Yeah, true. The giant black borders do make the scape look more cramped than it is. We'll be viewing through a rimless tank.
You know you mentioned the back corner triangle. That got me to thinking of some vivipara or cyprus heleferi in lieu of stem plants. They might compliment what you're currently planning...But I must agree with prototyp3, I love the drawn plan!
Yeah, the plant in the bg is vivipara.
I disagree with anyone saying that those rocks are too big. Those rocks are just right. If you scape this successfully, it will be epic.
That's the hardest part. So many people watching, pressure is on!
Just a quick thought, is the tank already drilled? If it's not make sure you drill the right sized hole for the bulkhead... you probably know that. A 3/4" bulkhead can be from a 1"-1 3/4" hole depending on the use
It is already drilled. 42mm and 29mm holes. A 1/2" bulkhead should fit the 29mm, but not sure about the 42. 1" is too big, but 3/4" might be too small. I might be in trouble. I'm going to the lfs tomorrow to see if they have bulkheads.
As of right now, I actually am liking the big rocks. I have to see what you do with it to stand behind that. Not that it matters, it's your tank. I can't wait to see this.
Thanks! I know, I don't want to disappoint. Trust me, LOL.
I agree. This could be a great demonstration of the perception of scale just because of the rocks. I wasn't entirely kidding about the big ADA sticker earlier. When I'm checking out photos of aquascapes, the one thing I always count on to set the scale of everything is the size of the ADA sticker relation to the size of the tank. Take it away and sometimes it is very difficult (in a good way) to tell that they aren't giant scapes.
I really like plays on perspective.
Very, true. That's what I'm using when looking through Amano's photobook. Sometimes it's hard to tell. Most of the time though, by looking at species of plants (gauging by leaf size) I'm able to guess the size.
some sweet stuff going on here.

Awesome, an international visitor. Welcome!
