Another guy... Another 12g long... Another DSM... Another filled
 
Hi everyone!

Here is my first rimless tank. I don't alway have time to photograph it but i'll try to keep updating it.

Tank: Mr. Aqua 12g Long
Substrate: AS Amazonia and powder
Hardscape: Seiryu stones
flora: HC, fissidens fontanus, mini pelia, Micranthemum Umbrosum, and some others.

I wanted to create an aquascape of two islands with some kind of story behind it. Unfortunately I can't think of one and maybe someone else will be inspired by this scape to write one.

But on to some pics.

I didn't really like the right side because the stone was so huge. I found two stones to replace them.

wow that looks awesome! i want to try a 12g long! I just started my 20g iwagami emersed though so I'm gonna have to wait on that lol. How long are you planning to do emersed?

wetbizquit 07-09-2012 04:21 PM

looks great, good start, i love DSM, makes it soo much easier to keep your plants rooted and healthy, looks like you wont have to have it too long without water love the stones by the way

Thanks! I'll probably wait another 2-4 weeks. I got something I want to try with this scape.

Yuup, DSM does make it root better. Your stone placement in the 10 gallon is pretty impressive too!

Haha. I'm gonna save that stone for another scape. I thought it was the perfect stone for this tank, but it didn't work out. I guess I'll have to get another tank.

Thanks again! I'm happier with this one. It makes it look more like one island instead of 2 rocks.

Wow, great job on the scape!

sayurasem 07-10-2012 09:18 AM

Btw I have a question for the 1st picture and 2nd picture. Did you plant all that HC or did it grow and spread.

wabisabi 07-10-2012 11:01 AM

Nice layout! Really digging these 12 g long scapes.

Caleb19 07-10-2012 02:10 PM

I'm digging that Concave Rock on the right side as well. Nice layout indeed.

Vermino 07-10-2012 04:34 PM

I swear, if you had another concave rock for the opposite side - you could create the gates of oblivion and send your shrimp to all damnation *palms his hands together* MuHAHA

i do love how you got little patches of moss or HC going on the grows - makes it look so ancient

Thanks Man! I might keep it dry like your tank for 90 days. Do you use a scissors to trim the HC? I have a 6''x12'' tank with an HC carpet and it takes 30 minutes to mow that lawn. This tank is going to take hours. I think I should use a waterproof hair clipper. lol
