Inspirational Aquascapes
So I'm trying to scape a 125G tank, and I have 2 large pieces of driftwood and a bunch of smaller pieces. I'm having trouble placing them in the tank and wondered what all you folks have used as your sources of inspiration for your aquascape?

Amano's series of 3 Nature Aquarium books are excellent for inspiration. The annual AGA contest entries are also excellent.

Awesome links! I too have been looking for inspiration for my 200g.

Didn't want to hijack this thread, but this is CRAZY!

Thanks Tom.
I like looking at the contest but they seem so incredibly good that it's hard to comprehend how the scape was done.
I'm also realizing that scaping a 125g is totally different than scaping a 29g. LOL!

that's not hijacking...thats an insane scape! Can't even imagine tweezers small enough to do that!
