Hey hey, it's the turtle tank! HC sounds like it will be great, sounds like you're sitting on a gold pot of belem right now.

I must say, very well done placement of the rocks and slope/dirt. The texture of that Seiryu (hope its seiryu lol) is just fantastic under that light. Very very nice scape, I like it a lot. Most people can't get rock placement down as well as you did here; this is a prime example of how-to-iwagumi in terms of rock placement and slope to create depth and perspective.

Thanks man! I really like the scape as well. Hopefully I'll have the time at some point in my life to do it justice and actually put some water in the tank.

Also, for those interested; I'm actually in Shanghai right now. I haven't seen really much of anything as far as fish go aside from a couple of ponds of very large koi. The garden that I was in that had the koi had some pretty cool rockwork. Probably one of my favorite things that I saw today were the life-size bonsai trees (I forgot the name for it) This particular one was a trident maple (my favorite type of maple).

hahaha, I didn't even notice that. I think it's just her purse doing that, but it does look funny.

Yes, but right now there's just a nice looking hunk of wood in there, a pleco and an amano shrimp I'm gonna move the tank to our living room, add some more wood and a few more plecos, so java fern and maybe some tetras.

Wood is beefy. Want to see how you pull this off. Every now and then I go through your old posts as well as UG. I miss that time. Sometimes I don't understand what you are doing and you really do something I wouldn't think of. Can't wait for the progression.

haha thanks. The wood is pretty thick, but there's a pretty large rock on it keeping it in place as well

I read through the entire journal yesterday and today! CL I have to say I thoroughly enjoy your journals and your style of planting. Your tanks really inspire me and I hope I can have the patience to create a scape like some of yours!
