I really love the wood, reminds me of a log you would find in a lagoon.

Old thread I know, but I adore what you did with the anubis! Is that nana petite? Makes me want to go out and buy a second Aquastyle 9G.... There's room on my desk...

THANK YOU! Thank you so much for creating an aquascape that is different from the overly popular hc, ug, glosso, etc. carpeted tanks in the front with lava rocks and petrified wood on a hill in the back or sides. I get so tired of seeing the same scapes over and over again. Yours is different and beautiful. I love it, it doesn't looks so perfect that it is unrealistic. it looks beautiful!!

That's really nice! What do you have growing out the back? How'd you get it to come right out the top? Is it in a riparium basket?

tandaina: yes that is A.nana 'petite'. Do it!
cypranid kid: yes, just the stock light and co2.Co2 was taken out 2 months later.
jmf3460: Thank you for your kind words. I appreciate it.
Aplomado: I a cant reacall the name of the plant that is growing out. I just wrapped the root system in moss and let it sit on the driftwood. It actually grew out of the moss and adhere its self on the wood. No basket was used.
Aquaarora: Plants are A.nana 'petite', Echinodorus tenellus, H. sp. 'Japan', java fern, and moss. Hope this helps.
