-Iwatank- the french scape


Hello,

Firstly, let's me introduce myself, I'm french design student who is passionate by the aquascaping, I'm here to share my hobbies and my new project
I'm 21 and it's my 'first' concrete tank project.

-IWATANK-

Technical :

Tank : -60X30(35?)X20/Verre ExtraWhite/transparent join
Or
-45X36X31/Verre ExtraWhite/transparent join
Filtre : JBL e401
Light : EasyLed 1700lM/6800 kelvins
Co2 : Dennerle Primus
Heater : external





Scenery :



Soil : Technical soil + Amazonia
Plants : -Hemianthus callitrichoides
-Utricularia graminifolia
-Taxiphyllum barbieri
Poissons : -Oto
-Rasbora Galaxy

(Some integration in my house for the tank dimension )




-60X30(35?)X20
Hand here you can see my layout test configuration, I really like the 2nd and 3th one





-45X36X31




I have to choose one tank and to booked it to launch my project, I have all of the others equipments
Due to my 'bad' english level, I'll communicate with lot of pictures to keep you'r intention, and I also hope this forum is more active than the french freshwaters forum

So to conclude, what do you prefer ? The first who looks like at the ADA 60F ou the second who have the same dimension than the dennerle scaper's tank ?

Pictures #1 & #2 are definitely my favorite. I myself would lean towards the driftwood scape because of the crevices and small caves the moss covered branches might create. However all look great and I'm sure whichever you decide will turn out well!

I like 2 the best, but the driftwood is good as well. Any idea what fish you'll stock with? The pictures are impressive.

thanks for your answer
I think I'll start the project with the 60x30x20 (or 60x32x22) tank and the 2nd configuration !
The driftwood one could be hard because they don't have really nice piece of driftwood at the fish shop

For the fish I want :
-Otocinclus
-Rasbora galaxy
And maybe a couple of fish, or not ? But firstly necessary fish as corydoras or otocinclus

My vote is for #2. I love how you have the java moss looking like it's supporting the weight of the stone.

Very excited to see how this comes out, it looks like you really know what you're doing based off those renderings!

That help a lot to choose a volume
