@starfire12 - first up thanks a lot and hey I love the song by dragonforce with the same title 'starfire' Anyway I guess you are referring to my fiancée's scape ie, End Point - if yes then these are the plants in there - HC 'cuba', Glossostigma elantoides, Elocharis parvula, echinodorus parvula and hydrocotyle tripartita. I am a fan of FG based plants so you might see most of my tanks with them only.. BTW - winning IAPLC is tough..i'm not that great a scaper to complete with super pro's, but i'm just a simple scaper who wanted to potray my work at the world stage, believe it or not this would be my first ever IAPLC entry.. so wish me luck..

What do you mean by FG based plants. What kind of stones did you use?

FG = Foreground plants. Rocks are simple red laterite stones collected from the roadside..

Default Few of my works - long overdue updates

Hello TPT,

I must really apologize to everyone who have been following the thread..updates from my side are really overdue, been very busy with my office life (been traveling like crazy) plus planning timelines as wedding date might get realized very soon..So sorry again. Few might get bit disappointed as there hasn't been a huge boom of scapes due to this but I did manage to fit in a very few. for now..i'll shut up and let the pics do the talking

Pic 1 - My fiancee's tank as it was in progress..she's kept it 100% algae free even with her super busy schedule of being a full time doctor (neuro bio medical doctor)
Pic 2 - Another 1ft'r scape..went on for a month..but had started traveling by this time and was getting neglected so even without a final photoshoot scrapped it unfortunately
Pic 3 - A random close up shot of the HC 'cuba' growth
Pic 4 - i liked the idea of a paludarium for long and wanted one for myself..so tried my hand a bit and this is what the hardscape looked like
Pic 5 - Post planting, the creeper on the top has been removed (this pic was day 1 right after startup) - but do not have a latest pic of it right now.

some truly amazing tanks. i havent just yet got started with my first tank, but im
glad i seen your works before i did, really inspired. some of the best ive seen, the main
thing i like is they have a feeling of depth, contrast, flow and all seem to have a focal
point. at least thats what i see, great work. subscribing to this thread.

Hey Zico. You have a good eye for aquascaping. I can tell your putting some work into them. I am enjoying all your work but I think my favorite so far is the one you did for your fiance. It's pretty inspiring work. Tanks like yours is what has me in deep design mode for the past year for my multi tank rack. I can't wait to get going on my setups.

been really super busy as usual with my office life. Wasn't getting much time to devote to the hobby. Thought of getting back again and did a rescape of the 1ft cube tank. the 2ft'r is still empty right now, not getting the right idea to start that up yet. But here is the pic of the new scape for the 1ft.cube - scape name - splash

Sorry for not updating the thread for a very long time. I was traveling a lot due to my work. But with onset of next year's contests wanted to make a tank again. So here is the hardscape as completed, let know your thoughts of what you guys think :-)

Work in progress
