Seashore

Hi All, Hope still remember my waterfall effect last year.
This is my last year layout for AGA I think some of you may see it.





This layout also create a lot of echo about how to create the effect, but I am too busy,
finally, I just finish the article about how to create this effect and publish at our site.

Nice effect indeed. The lower shot needs some help with the background. Perhaps some Photoshop ;-)

The waterfall effect was sand, but I have no idea about the seashore...

Great scape BTW

10 gallon.
20 gallon long low light garden.

It's just the bare bottom of the tank using the larger, out-cropping rocks on each side to give it a sense of being below the level of the rest of the sand. Very, very original. I love it!

I like the idea.
I know the sand is messy and it going to need to be tidied up often to look good over time. Might be interesting to try out a paludarium and use macro algae or stick with the FW plant's theme. That would give you a lot of possibilities.

Neat idea though using blue acrylic to represent the ocean.
I think you achieved your goal.

Thanks for your appreciation, indeed, there is a lot of query forward from AGA to ask me about how to create this effect, but I am too busy to write a complete article, finally, I finish the article about how to create this, simply it is a light effect. Our site is in bilingual now, so I think most of you would understand my poor English. but you must register as our member to view this hot article

Tom, The Waterfall effect hard to keep but this one is very easy, it is not by blue acrylic, but very close, you can refer it to my article. Actually, I don't need to arrange the seashore every week, because I use a rain pipe blow from the back, the waterflow clean up the surface that messed by the fish and shrimp and also create a very nature seashore. Only the sand on the water surface are arranged carefully to simulate the spray before photo.
