Haven’t been very active on this forum and this thread is in need of a serious update.
Anyways this scape is done.

Below are pics of the new layout. Currently undergoing some construction to get my tank room ready. it will only house 2 scraped tanks. Both high tech though.

Basically this scape is me getting itchy fingers waiting for all the work to be done.

Still looking for a name. but would like your guys/gals comments/critics

I hesistated to look at your journal because the name made it sound like a big mess of random plants. Boy was I wrong. Very nice job with this! What are those fish? And by GMO, do you mean genetically modified organism?

Thanks! :proud:
in the first layout its dolomite. Horrible stuff!
Then i changed it to "dragon stone" very easy to get here in SA.
basically its a hardened clay rock.
