Different Styles of Aquascaping?


I'm new around here, and to the hobby as well. I've noticed people talking about different types of aquascaping. Where would I find info as to the different styles? I'm just getting started, and I'd love to really create something beautiful for my fish to live in and for my family and I to enjoy as well.

If I could get a list of the different styles I'm sure I could find some that I would really enjoy.

Thank you!

Welcome to the forum and to the hobby.

Your best bet would be to start looking through the aquascaping forum for ideas. Also go through the hundreds of tank journals here on the site. You'll find tons of ideas that help spark your creativity.

Thank you Chad! That is a great list to get me started on research what styles appeal to me.

somewhatshocked - Thank you for the welcome. I have been looking through the tank journals, which prompted my question. But there are so many wonderful tanks. I get easily distracted when I see *shiny*. I figured if I had a list of the different styles, I'd know what to look for in a more logical manner.

Me too. I'm going to have to take my time deciding what style to start with because I want to do them all I think!
