Re: Mini M AquaSky build thread!!



Ended up with small necklace wire from hobby lobby. This is just a sneak peak. I dont want to fully plant or anything until its on stand for obvious reasons. The wood will be covered in moss and what not. I just stuck anubias on there so they would start rooting.

Unfortunately that photo was part of a series taken at Mr. Amanos brothers house I think, and the only photos from it Re the two in the catalogue from 2009 - the one of the 90P and the Mini (if you examine it, it's actually a mini S, based on how the solar hangs on it and the width of the aquarium relative to height, Amano has an obsession with the Mini S footprint - many of his most striking nano layouts are in the Mini S rather than the M).

Maybe ask Frank to send you a couple pictures of pieces of branch wood he has that are similar to the one in the picture?
