Wow, this is very nice. Excellent! I am think work same. No water change? How this do?

Low tech tank should be less hassle. So, just top up the water will do.

I like it! I always like moss tanks. What plants and fish do you have in there? And, how many gallons is it?

Nice work. Its inspiring to see tanks that are that low matinence and still look good. :thumbsup:

Nice tank! What kinds of fish do you have in there? How big is it?

Wasserpest 07-04-2006 09:45 PM

That looks great dom. 2x1x1 would be about 15 gallons.

I would also like to know what fish you have, looks like little rasboras.

Amazing tank. How long did it take the moss to grow in?

Nice looking tank by the way. I just can't believe how bright and lush looking the Moss is.

Sorry for the late reply.

The picture will take a bit longer to load due to it is the link to one of the Taiwan aquascaping forum.

The rasbora was mistaken as Rasbora/Boraras brigittae. But it was just verified as Rasbora/Boraras Urophthalma by my friend recently. Size is not more than 2cm. Kind of tinny and fragile. But very nice schooling fish.

There are various kind of mosses. All mosses was given by friends. Took around 8 months to grow like that.

I really dig this tank great work.

Did you place in the top 500?

agdavis 07-19-2006 06:16 AM

awesome tank

dom 07-21-2006 05:23 AM

Nope. Placed 799. Perhaps I used the wrong Golden Section to design the layout. (Bonsai Golden Section) And can't really see the depth of the layout. They might prefer the other way like in Aqua Journal-Rules of Third.

I like it a lot better than a bunch of other tanks that placed very highly. I would have put it in the top 25. This is one of my favorite tanks.

I am happy if you are one of the judger.:bounce: :bounce: Everyone have their own view and comments. Perhaps this low maintenance tank is not appreciate by the judgers. Due to they might thought I didn't put much effort if compare to those tank with stem plants. But this tank took at least 8-9 months to mature. The trimming part is much more difficult than trimming the stem plants.

anyway, just my personal opinions only. :D
