Hello again, this used to be on a thread called Ahuehuete, used a similar driftwood but changed moss to flame.
Cheers.

Wow that looks awesome.

I would like the substrate area better if it had some kind of a slope. It is almost perfectly horizontal.

Where in Mexico are you?

The Idea on this scape was to keep it simple (its actually the my first tank without algae invasions at all, maybe because of this) in most aspects. I do like the look of it and I guess it will be better once the hc and the glosso cover their respective parts. glosso behind the rocks, hc in the front. Glosso area in the back is between one and two inches above the front.
Thanks for the comment.

Very interesting!:proud: I want to know more about this tank. What is the rock, light, fertz, tank size? Where did you find the rocks? Just think the wood shouldn't be centered. The golden rule show things should be off center by 1/3 to draw the eyes.

Let's go to the source:





White dolomite slag skree is the only ground cover. Nothing else grows at this elevation and condition. I go there about once every 2 years or so, it's in CA, about 11,000ft, long drive, but awesome views.

how long did it take you to get this growth? I always have trouble dealing with flame moss, and the waiting you hav to put up with.

I started with something like 4-5 golfballs of flame, tied it in bunches. its like four months old.
Lots of CO2, light and ferts.
