Cool Post your favorite aquascape

I'm planing on a getting a larger tank (either big corner or 55G) in a few months have been spening endless hours looking at aqua scape. I want the new tank to be extra amazing. Below are a few of my favorites so far.

If you have come across any amazing designs post them for all to enjoy! (and me to steal ideas!)

I've been following this tank's journal, and it is def. one of my top favorites, too. I really want to try something similar in a 40B...

I've saved so many for inspiration, I can't narrow them down. But here are 3. I wish I could credit the tank's owners, but I don't have that info...

This one is my screen saver. It can be done using a stainless steel mat hung by transparent wires. I would say 4 fishing threads would do the trick.

This one, called "Amazon" winner of the 2012 IAPLC is stunning.



Also love this epiphytic layout.

Wow those are both beautiful . I really like the amazon one. I wonder how much upkeep that would actually be? It looks like most of the trees are moss. For building the "trees" Could you use any random wild branches or are only certain types aquarium safe?

I would love to create something like that in my tank,

I am interested as well, for the type of wood used, it has very straight and tree like branches and apparently smooth bases. Branchy manzinita is close but not exact.

This is from the AGA 2012. Best of Show. I love how he does a gradient of green to red using 2 types of rotalas. Also, the depth given by the large slopes gives me the feeling of like a cliff or something. I like how the slopes are very 'textured' and not smooth. Feels more natural.
