scape three could work but the rock and the wood parallel to eachother is kind of dissuading me. im sure you'll figure it out your scapes have been great so far!!
Hmm I do see what you mean, when I was planning it I imagined the rocks being the riverbed and the wood becoming lodged while being tumbled down the river which I guess is why I tried to make it look lodged.
Also, thank you for the compliment, I'm not sure I can accept it though.
I like three, but they all are nice. Looking forward to seeing it planted!
Thanks, Helgymatt. Glad you like them. Me too!
I like scape 1! Now I want to see this planted before I get up in 6 hours....
Haha, I'm a student, a student that's about to become homeless unless I can find a cheap flat and a job. It'll get planted when I have the money for the plants. Thanks for the heads up, I liked one too, but the more I played with scape 3 the more it made "sense" to me.
I like all of them.
Three looks the best as a hardscape sans plants, but when I picture them all filled in, two looks to have the most potential; interesting in and of itself while still managing to highlight and accentuate the plants. It's definitely my favorite of all three.
However, if the hardscape is, as you stated, precarious -- meaning the wood is balanced delicately on the rocks or some such -- then, yeah, the third's a great hardscape to work with.
Ugly, I was waiting for you to comment, I'm glad you like it. I'd have picked two myself, but it kept falling over and moving and just refused to play ball, it looked good but it was balanced so delicately a microrasboras turbulence could knock it over. I'm really enjoying playing with scape 3, I'm thinking of adding a scree to the middle V I was saving for downoi but I think the smaller shards of rocks in this place might work well, I tried it and liked it but I'm unsure, I don't want to lose too much of the plants to the hardscape and I'm note sure if it'll even be viable in terms of collecting mulm or working visually once the tank is wet.
