Order of Ornamentaria


OOO for short.

The Order of Ornamentaria

motto:

Monumentally Ornamental.

Welcoming any to join.

Membership requirement: A tastefully arranged ornament in your tank. It can be of anything- stone, carved wood, well done plastistone - whatever. This can actually more difficult to execute than a good 'Nature' tank design. It is, in fact, 'Scenescaping'.

Or Spongebob, we will take Spongebob too.

CO2 or non, high tech / low tech doesn't matter. Got ornament/s? Got a journal about a tank with ornaments? Good to go

Seeing a member sig with the logo in it or reading this thread gives a list of the Ornamentarians on TPT.

Get a number and join! (if you dare). Start a new trend! Set Amanos hair on fire! Do something AMAZING. We have the 'Nature' style, the 'Iwagumi' style, the 'Dutch' style and we shall introduce the 'Ornamentaria' style. May it go down in infamy!

You need to recruit the member that did the Tomb Raider tank . Absolutely the best use of a decor ornament I've every seen.

EDIT- Found the Tank

Default Wow

Evilhorde that is an awesome set up. The greek columns remind me of a scene from a movie, especially with the backlighting. Excellent Job. That ship scene is also amazing. What a great idea!

Welcome!

Found a couple more pics without even leaving my chair.



I'm not sure if this ornament applies since this setup has never seen a fish but it was fun to make just the same.





I also have some burned out model railroad buildings I like to use but I can't seem to find any old pictures or enough motivation to make new ones. If I find either, I'll post.

Picture of my ornamented tank is in post 6 of my shrimp thread: http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...45#post4154545

I had a rule against ornaments, going for the natural look until we found a Tardis, because, you know, it's a Tardis. All of our LFS seem to carry funky ornaments. :P But Evilhorde... your ship, columns, and coliseum... wow. I may need to rethink this and apply some old theatre magic to my tanks. Thanks for the invite, Luminescent.

This will be a thread of inspiration! Never thought ornaments could be made to look so good.

This is my first real attempt to do a scenery tank. It is a 5 gallon tank with Aqueon Quietflow filter (Looking for a filter that is easier to ignore). Tetra heater, and DIY Co2. I made the shack, tree, and root cellar. Plants are still growing in.

You are very welcome - love the Tardis

Welcome Wildrose- that will be so cute when it is all grown in. A little Gilligans Island jungle.

If I had the room I would set up another 40- rimless this time and brackish for a Violet Dragon Goby and about 20 Endlers.

I would make a hill and on top of it a 'cave' out of driftwood -cover it with anubias/java fern and moss - and put this guy in it:

Awesome thread! I don't have a tank to contribute but someday I'll set up a 20L for this:



It's a fiberglass background we had in a 20L when I was a kid some 40 years ago and it's been following me about ever since. Never got around to using it but you folks are an inspiration.
