Rock Hardscapes Pictures Requests


Does anybody on this board do Rock hardscapes rather than wood? I saw a scape designed by amano in an issue of TFH, and it was with iirc hairgrass and only1 or 2 other types of plants, with rasboras and amano shrimp. he had designed the scape to look like 2 mountains, one larger than the other, it looked really cool, and I was wondering if anybody has done this?

So....if you do, post up those tanks!

Search "Iwagumi"

Here's an example:

About 1/3 down you'll see some nice Iwagumi style tanks.

this is the very image I was referring to....It's inspired me to do a complete breakdown of my tank, and make something like this iwagumi tank. It's so powerful, yet so simple.

I've got mostly rocks in my tank, not sure though if it's 'classical' enough for what you're after -



Cheers
