The guy was telling me about that, basically these Bonsai trees are specifically grown for aquascaping. They make the bonsai branches grow and fuse onto the wooden disks so you can later attach aquatic plants onto them! I got it for $60 so I was a bit remorseful but hey you only buy hardscape once right? Plus is going to look really nice on my Fluval Spec V!

Wow that's so cool.
May I ask where you purchased it?

The only problem I can see is that the discs are so large, and so placed, that by the time you get enough plant material there to cover them, you'll also have obscured the intricate details that make the tree so nice.

I bought it at Ck Fishworld in West Covina, CA. He had one left, apparently a friend of his brought them over from Vietnam.

Agreed! I was thinking of trimming down the disks a bit.

Why have remorse? I've spent $60 on stuff not half as cool as that.

I'm debating now between weeping moss, riccia or Fissidens fontanus.

Texas, I mostly get remorse when I start adding up how much I've spent this year on auqascaping, tanks etc. LOL This is my first year going back into the Hobby since High School and man oh man do things add up!
