Whiskey. Foxtrot. Tango. This makes no sense to me.

I was thinking about "urban aquascaping" the other day, but I had something totally different in mind. I was thinking it might be cool to replicate the footings (or a base) from a bridge (like you might see spanning over a river or lake). Maybe make it out of concrete and wood. Probably a dumb idea, but makes more sense than coating a piece of drift wood with quartz.

I love that piece of driftwood. But why cover up such a great piece like that. I have never seen urban aquascaping before. I will be watching and waiting to see more.

If you look at the inspiration for the layout "the lost city" it makes more sense. I've had a similar idea swirling about for some time after seeing a few shows about Machu Picchu. Lots of terracing with steps, stone walls, with low growing ground cover. The black quartz covering seems a bit odd initially but given how you have everything else planned out so well I'm sure the reasoning will become clear very soon.

I appreciate the time put in to display the concept so artfully in the thread. Looking forward to seeing how this develops. Needless to say I think you've piqued a lot of interest with your first post! Consider me subscribed.

Dear Friends,

Again my deep apology since english is not my native language.

Thank you so much for all comments, It's been a very long journey for me
understand the needs of planted aquarium in general but most of all to be
able to generate a new idea or concept for what is defined and known as
AQUASCAPING.

I do hope I will be able to accomplish all the goals and create an healthy aq'.

Certainly I will update here in due time and I also hope to be more active
at that good forum as well.


Thank u in advanced

Thank u very much.

U R B A N AQUASCAPING
is about harmony between
Hardware and Software.

Hardware = Aquarium/cupboard (1)
+ Soil/Stone/Wood (2).

Software = Water/Plants/fish (3).

We aspire to experience that triangle
as it is and always was one life tissue.
Is the goal of U R B A N Aquascaping to "hide" the equipment, while making it blend into the natural feel of the tank? That's my perception of it; please correct me if i am wrong. I think this is a great idea because we usually try to hide the equipment entirely, but if there is a way to make it blend in with everything (by making it not look like what it actually is), then i'm sure many people will follow your ideas.

But then again, what is the stair-looking structure for? And the box with holes in it? Is this another way to make an "artificial" tank, rather then one with plastic plants, unnatural-colored gravel, and decorations (pirate ships, etc)? I really like this idea. Although it is very different, it would change my view of unnatural aquariums entirely.

Sorry about all the random babbling, i'm just trying to understand this new style. :D
