Panorama Scape-Moutain/Lake/Forest

Hi! It was about time i do something with my empty 40 gallons.

Here's some pics of the progress. I dont know all names of the plants ive used, but in there are platy/guppy/neons/tetras/danios/shrimps/snails/clams
The bottom is bare, to give it the illusion of a lake separating two landscapes.

Looks really cool. Do you plan on placing any kind of substrate between them. What type of rocks did you use.

I used to keep an open mind but my brains kept falling out.

Yes substrate is a mix of aquasoil, sand, clay pebbles and the bigger rocks are sediments stream rocks ... Planning on making the bottom bluer ... To b continued

Without substrate between looks good, until algae strikes.

I really like the look of this. No substrate instead of a sand "channel" actually looks pretty cool.

I have an odd suggestion that I don't know will work but may be worth a try. Look into "shadow box backgrounds" and maybe you can apply the same where water would be, using a blue light. Maybe add some crushed glass or something. It may not work but could be cool. You can buy blue tint film for cars or spray blue tinted paint (usually called "stained glass paint". Now it may be too late for all those ideas, much less them all but I just wanted to share some ideas.

That said, I really am loving the look of this. I like the left side but hopefully it doesn't out grow itself. If so...add some stems and trim when needed. Lovely tank.

I've always loved your tanks, very creative. Glad you aren't afraid to try new things, usually when I try something new it's a disaster, but seems to always work out for you.

You shouldn't take life to seriously. You'll never get out alive.

That looks really nice. Way to think outside the box. I actually liked it better with the wood on the left side myself though.

How do you plan to keep the sand from settling and filling in the middle where there is no substrate?

Wow, you have done it again. Lovely tank. No corydoras going in I hope? The sand would not remain neatly banked if they are present! Love the overhanging sword plant and the odd bit of of wood now. Without the wood the plantings would be a bit bland with no shadows at the moment. Suspect that is going to change soon enough once the Apon starts doing its thing.

I recently discovered if you put the thermometer on the side of the tank that suction cup isn't so bothersome. The actual thermometer can be rotated in the holder after all! All these years.......

There are 2 types of people on this forum. Those that have algae, and those that lie and say they don't.
