Wow are these all yours?? Just beautiful! I think I like the 36gal corner scapes the best.

kcartwright856 03-06-2012 07:25 PM

I love each and every one of them! You are definitely an artist. I can see a lot of love in your work!

manini 03-06-2012 09:34 PM

Thank you. Yes they are all my my work. The oldest tank is roughly around 6 years old (Large hex tank).

Very inspirational!!! But aren't these only 1/3 of all your tanks?

talontsiawd 03-07-2012 12:55 AM

Not that it's the most impressive but I really love the 2nd one. It looks really "rich" and "high end" but all the plants are easy to grow and are easily available. It's strength is 100% in the design.

That hexagon is really beautiful. How many gallons is that?

Nocturnal 03-07-2012 03:25 PM

Very talented

Kinda miss visiting your shop. Lfs around here suck as far as plants go.

Thank you. Yes, I do have more. Some just need to be photographed and I need to hunt for the other photos.

It is about 200 gallons. It was a pain to scape. Tank was viewable 360 degrees.

Check out AFA in SF, they have a good selection of plants there or Aquatouch in AZ. If I am not mistaken, there are only a few shops that specialize in aquatic plants.

If i can also add in a recommendation, i'd definitely check out Albany Aquarium in the bay area. It's a great store with a very nice plant selection. :)

Absolutely love the 120P iwagumi and mini-S Jojo. What type of HG did you use in the 120P?

Yes, thanks Philip. Forgot about Albany Aquarium.

Thanks. The 120P was my very first try at an iwagumi. HG was E. parvulus. It was actually pretty cool using parvulus because I could actually change the look of the tank by just trimming E. parvulus in different way.
