Aquascapes using rounded rocks?
 
Has anyone seen/have pictures of any good aquascapes that use rounded/smooth rocks?

Keep em coming, guys, those Oliver Knott ones are pretty much exactly what I was looking for. I hadn't seen them on pervious adventures through those galleries.

Are those the lava rocks from that guy here in the S&S? If so, how smooth are they?

Thanks alot, Left C, but I'm looking for scapes without driftwood, actually. I'm trying to get an idea how to plan a 'kid proof' tank that can't have any sharp edges cause of a fish I'm looking to keep.

bsmith 12-31-2008 09:11 PM

They have some dimples on the surface but other than that theyre pretty smooth.

Yes they are from Steven Leeds. I actually have mine for sale if your interested. :)

Dollface 12-31-2008 11:35 PM

No, i'm good, they're a little to dark and round, I'm thinking i'll go for somthing flatter.

I use rounded rocks in my scape check it out in the Nano section. The last pictures posted have all rounded rocks with no sharp edges. Several are really low in the scape also.

I went with smooth rocks in one of my 10g tanks. Just a few river rocks I found here and there.

I really like the flat rock right in the center, It's got such a great shape. Thanks for sharing.
