The Lonely Mountain- Fish added
Here is my newest aquascape. I have been wanting to do a scape like this for quite some time.
I recently got a hold of some Anubias barteri 'Micro' which is super awesome! i cant believe i was able to get it! its such a tiny plant with each leaf being about the size of a pencil eraser! it fits the scale of this tank perfectly.
Tank- Aqueon Evolve 4 gallon
Light-Stock LED. i know its at least bright enough to grow Dwarf red Lilies.
Heater-Hydor Theo 25w
- Anubias barti 'Micro'
-1 Black Orchid crowntail betta from Marco
now on to the pictures!
Scape is set- ready to fill

i cant seem to figure out how to get depth into the photos with a black background. this scape really needs a hazy white background.

Nice tank! Any plans for fauna?
very simple idea, and well executed! I'm curious... how many stones is this really?
one of the challenges in upkeep will be preserving the slope, keep us updated!
Nice, I like it. Only thing I wish you'd done was use ADA AS or Fluval SS. That substrate is a little distracting. Cool plants though!
Those plants are the best. They grow nice and slowly but are so beautiful when finally all bunched together.
They blossom with CO2...which you should consider since algae may sprout with so few plants.
with the light being as low as it is, i dont think algae will be a problem, even with the minimal plant load. especial since im not fertilizing for anything.
The Betta will be sent Monday. So it should be here Tuesday :D can't wait!
Day 3 update.
i did a water change yesterday (was planning on doing them everyday for the first week, but i wasnt home)
here are some pictures, theres not much growth, but the bubbles are gone and the water has cleared up.

For anyone interested, here is a preview of my next aquascape. the seiyu stones scaped themselves, it took be about 5 minutes to put this together.

The betta will be here tomorrow :D im hoping he gets here safely! im doing another waterchange tonight to prepare for him
If only those stones were slightly larger! I have a feeling that they'll just get covered up after you plant the tank... Looks good though. Perhaps you could add a few taller/larger rocks to add some contrast?
i want to plant it like this...maybe with some vivipara in the back though

Very nice on both of those, Bob. I have been toying around with a stone based scape when I upgrade my 20high to a 28gal rimless. Not sure what type of substrate to use though. The plants in the 4gal are awesome, and I may have accidentally come across some of that same one, not sure though.
P.S. Do you still have the salty setup?
i bought the anubias micro here on the forum. its awesome and soo small!
no i tore that down a while ago. just wasnt working out. the iwagumi hardscape is in that same tank actually...
hows the fam?
