Fortunately I have been in the hobby for 15+ years now and couple of years in aquascaping area..so without much delay I present few of my works of the year 2012. Hope folks like it.

The second tank has a really warm feeling to it. I'd bet she liked it.

@DogFish - there is no rocket science build to it to be honest. For the nano cubes I use a simple orange coloured 15W night lamp. And in my fiancé's I used a simple cool white 6500K 14W T5 which was covered with yellow paper towel, single in the middle and double layer at the sides to give the red-orangish view. Hope this helps..

@partobe - hehe..playing around with a tank is always blissful.. please let me know if I can help scape wise for ideating in future..

Thanks all..

So here is one of my latest work in progress - this a 2ft'r everything is a build done by me.

the tank is now aged 1.5 months. adding an old shot and a concept latest one. This is not a final shot..a lot of work has to yet go in here.

The scape is called - "Hills by the morning"

pic 1: the tank at 1 month age
pic 2: taken during my weekly maintenance. few changes have gone in the tank yet a lot of work still left.

Your scapes are amazing! The first pic of the cube ver. 2.0 reminds me of snow or a frozen creek.
