this tank is incredible, looks super natural and aged. i def liking the smaller amount of leaves on the bust. all the Anubias is so lush it looks like spilling vines.

Thanks everyone! Appreciate the kind words!

The tank is on the comeback from the heat, it never got that hot before- It was a reeftank before without a chiller! Never needed one but to be safe it does for next summer for sure.

Can't wait for the head dress to grow in, the bolbitis to take off (regular and mini) and the anubias petite to be 100%. The coffeefolia and fissidens fonatnus are just doing awesome- heat or no heat!

I love the way the Java Fern roots cling tightly to the face off the rhizome... awesome.

And the rhizome they are coming from grew there on its own and is literally attached to the stone! Not the roots, the actual rhizome!

Your scape is amazing, I love seeing something so unique! But what really blows my mind is the patience it would take to let something like this evolve! Your tank clearly did not get to where it is overnight, but your vision and planning paid off.

This is one of the best low-tech tanks I've seen. I love how many tiers and levels you made, which is something truly unique from most flat scapes.

Thanks everyone!

Its crazy to realize its been 2 years+ already. And the tanks so big I am stoked its filling in.

This entire tank was inspired around 15, maybe 20 years ago by an Amano picture where I first saw petrified wood in a tank. Then combining that with my obsession with a freshwater reef type tank...

I can't wait to see how it looks a year from now with the fissidens fontanus just going nuts!
