I love it!

It's gonna look so sweet when it fills in more.

Do you have any other plans for it?

I would switch out the white clouds for something like tetras or some boraras species. Something smaller, that will hang out in the mid-upper regions.

I think some shrimps would be a good addition too.

Oh, that's going to look amazing once it's grown in.

I'm on the lookout for rocks just like that...

I am about to put some moss on this driftwood i have and i would like to know what exactly will that look like when it grows in? I know it's impossible to "show me" with that tank until it grows, but anyone have pics of their tank that started just like ikuzo with the small amount of moss tied to the wood?

Great Name for a GREAT scape! GJ

You could also try a fish that will swim through and around the drift wood. That would help keep the attention toward that piece.

the idea for the name just came out when i see a lot of people make trees or stump for a scape, so why not make a fallen tree and i was just wondering what kind of fish would that be. i'm thinking to move one of my small red tailed black shark in there. that fish does wander a lot.

thanks, my only worry is when the xmas moss got some hair algae. it's pretty hard to find amano shrimps these days.

That is an awesome scape. I really love the idea you have going.
This is seriously going to look so amazing when all that moss fills in.

Yea the shark would be great. This tank is one of my favorite and so is that drift wood. One of the best pieces I have ever seen.

If it was a bigger tank I would say clown loaches, but those buggers get huge! One day you need to make a fallenII. Maybe a 250G! That would be nuts!

mizu-chan, thanks.

MikeP_123, wow 250 would be huge and it's hard to find the right pieces of woods for it. the truth is i bought this wood last year and kept it for later.

Yea that would be difficult to find the right wood. You might have to end up boiling an actual fallen tree That would be something.

Another fish that would be sweet would be a hillstream loach. Don't know much about them except that they need moving water but it would look pretty sweet on that DW.
