Hi All,

I'm new in the forum. The website is a massive archive for someone new to the hobby so kudos to all who have written things so far for all. Fortunately I have been in the hobby for 15+ years now and couple of years in aquascaping without much delay I present few of my works of the year 2012. Hope folks like it.

The second tank has a really warm feeling to it. I'd bet she liked it.

zico_aqua 12-23-2012 07:47 AM

yes she loved it! :D and yes this tank also came in 9th place in a forum based scaping contest here in India..:)

Very nice!!
Are you using an incandescent light build to do the back lighting?

Love all of them. Guess I have to go do some work on mine now

@DogFish - there is no rocket science build to it to be honest. For the nano cubes I use a simple orange coloured 15W night lamp. And in my fiancé's I used a simple cool white 6500K 14W T5 which was covered with yellow paper towel, single in the middle and double layer at the sides to give the red-orangish view. Hope this helps..:)

@partobe - hehe..playing around with a tank is always blissful..:D please let me know if I can help scape wise for ideating in future..:)

Thanks all..:)

So here is one of my latest work in progress - this a 2ft'r everything is a build done by me.

the tank is now aged 1.5 months. adding an old shot and a concept latest one. This is not a final shot..a lot of work has to yet go in here.

The scape is called - "Hills by the morning"

pic 1: the tank at 1 month age
pic 2: taken during my weekly maintenance. few changes have gone in the tank yet a lot of work still left.

This is a 8inch cube.
Scape name - The Cuuube Ver: 2.0

This tank is a DSM startup, so it's going to take it's own sweet time to grow..bit less work for here..:) phew! thank god..:)

Pic 1: the hardscape
Pic 2: Post 90% planting - I'm still awaiting the arrival of weeping moss for the front tree.
Pic 3: A smoke pack just to show the size of the scape.

Your scapes are amazing! The first pic of the cube ver. 2.0 reminds me of snow or a frozen creek.

#2 FTW! I just love how the background lighting gives that sunrise/sunset feeling. Awesome man, and welcome to TPT.
