New adventure "Hallelujah Mountains" [13g]

New aquascape on the way! Frames will be Dennerle Scaper's tank with dimensions 45x36x31(h) cm - 50 liters or 13 gallons.
Inspiration for this scape are chinese Hallelujah mountains.



Hardscape:



To get oblong stone "sticks" I have to broke them by lenght. I will try to do this by chisel and hammer... Hope they will crack as i wish.




The tank:




I am planning to use Riccardia (mini pellia) few species of Fissidens and maybe some other moss.

Comments are welcome.

This will be amazing if you pull it off

You should do a frosted white/light blue background or something to simulate the distant sky.

I love what your doing with this scape. The layout so far seems really great and we planned out. My only suggestion is to remove some of the stones to create some open area in the front like in the picture.

I agree! A little piece of lawn in front would be nice IMO
