Whiskey. Foxtrot. Tango. This makes no sense to me.

I was thinking about "urban aquascaping" the other day, but I had something totally different in mind. I was thinking it might be cool to replicate the footings (or a base) from a bridge (like you might see spanning over a river or lake). Maybe make it out of concrete and wood. Probably a dumb idea, but makes more sense than coating a piece of drift wood with quartz.

I love that piece of driftwood. But why cover up such a great piece like that. I have never seen urban aquascaping before. I will be watching and waiting to see more.

That adhesive you are using is meant to be used with adequate ventilation.

If you look at the inspiration for the layout "the lost city" it makes more sense. I've had a similar idea swirling about for some time after seeing a few shows about Machu Picchu. Lots of terracing with steps, stone walls, with low growing ground cover. The black quartz covering seems a bit odd initially but given how you have everything else planned out so well I'm sure the reasoning will become clear very soon.

I appreciate the time put in to display the concept so artfully in the thread. Looking forward to seeing how this develops. Needless to say I think you've piqued a lot of interest with your first post! Consider me subscribed.

Thank you very much

Dear Friends,

Again my deep apology since english is not my native language.

Thank you so much for all comments, It's been a very long journey for me
understand the needs of planted aquarium in general but most of all to be
able to generate a new idea or concept for what is defined and known as
AQUASCAPING.

I do hope I will be able to accomplish all the goals and create an healthy aq'.

Certainly I will update here in due time and I also hope to be more active
at that good forum as well.


Thank u in advanced
globali

This is a very strange idea, but I think could be very cool none-the-less. Interested to see what it turns out to look like.

Way to think outside of the box.
