I just checked out the castle tank too. To be honest I glanced by the "Ornamentaria" thread and I because I didn't actually see your scape. That is a beautiful setup. I applaud your talets. I'm pretty sure that is the first scape I've seen that uses castles and it actually looks good.
Oh it's on there- toward the bottom of the first page- and there is a link to the album on my starter post.. I just wanted folks to get in there and post their treasures instead of filling it up with mine.

So where is your scenescape

Luminescent Update: About a month. Everything is moving along well. Following Walstads prescribed practices. Using Excel and Trace + a mineral / vitamin supplement I mixed.

Luminescent Thank you so much - I am aiming for very natural. One of these days I may do an extremely controlled, scaped till it screams, 'Amano' style tank but not yet.

Shangrila This is really beautiful. You have amazing talent! I wish I had a brain and eye that worked like that. Its so natural looking.

Luminescent Update- 11 days.

Full Album here: http://imgur.com/a/wwc9i

Past couple of days: Capped with black sand. Filled in with some trimmings from 40, 3 Anubias Nana and the 5 White Clouds.

I should have brushed the plants off, but here it is.



Going for the SE Asian tropical river look - but not an exacting biotope as I want to be free to play with diff plants/fish.



Eleocharis from the river -







Added Tanychthys last night- caught them way back in the corner doing this by morning. Got these guys as small unknown fry from a feeder tank at the local lfs a year ago- 15 of them for cycling a 29. They all lived, sold 10 back to the lfs a month ago.

Sierras. That's about exactly what it looks like- but totally wrong end of the country. I'll check different lil species in this area.

lochaber Well done with the scaping, it looks nice, natural, and like it has sufficient hiding places, etc.

Seedreemer I can't help with plant ID but I'm interested in what it is. It's very pretty. Pretty tank too, I love the natural look.

frenchie1001 i like the rock and wood lay out.!

Luminescent Thank you. I am glad you are inspired! The castle tanks journal is here if you are interested. http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...d.php?t=438937

HSA1255 I like the tomato/beer tank and although I can not help to answer your question on the plant ID I wanted to comment and let you know I'm interested to see how it goes.

On your other tank; My kids would go crazy over that amazing scene. I love that you did that for your kids with the Sleeping Beauty's Castle tank. I guess I expected disney characters strewn about but I was wrong, you tastefully made a scene that would delight any adult or child. I am so impressed with the scale of everything and the way the plants, substrate and even fish supported the theme of the tank. Truly incredible tank! I think you are a cool mom for doing it. I am inspired to create an aquarium that will capture the imagination of my little ones and will definitely consider trying my hand at it in the future.
