Really well done. Was this all attached together and then dropped in as a single piece or is it free standing?

Nope they are all free standing but once the hardscape is finished I will glue the rocks together so I can transport it more easy to the contest.

Well I just buy them at LFS. One on the left is actually pretty reddish. I don't think they will be very dark once flooded.



And thanks

Top view of the mountain hardscape. Almost everywhere in the crevices I put some cig filters to make the hardscape strong as possible so I can transport it to the live contest.

Decided to try some fine leaved stems in the back. If it doesn't work out I can always go back to flame moss.

14 days in dry start now. One week before flooding! I will add dhg mini, rotala wallichi, hemianthus micranthemoides to the scape right before flooding. When tank is stable/cycled I will add some HC and buce mini coin.

Strange thing is for my eye it looks more rocks are covered in moss since 14 days of dry start! But when comparing photos it even looks like some moss has fallen off due spraying the tank daily. Weird haha!

Room shot of the 40cm mountain scape (dry start) for Aquaflora Vivarium contest. Added a desk lamp to make sure everywhere will reach light. Also with more light I hope mosses will attach faster. Spraying twice a day with RO water to prevent buildup of lime on the glass. Two small openings for ventilation to prevent mold.
