wow. i tend to favor natural/wild aquascaping but tanya, that's very cool. it's so far in the other direction that it almost looks like the ancient ruins at mesa verde and the like. that will look great when it's overgrown a bit..

i was staring at it hoping to catch sight of the lilliputians that built it.

awesome..

I too am looking for some good aquacapes to take some pointers from but can you let us know the dimensions of the tank you are posting?

tanya - Nice use of shelf and regular rock. Looks like one of the best aquascapes around

This was Jan '08. I loved the look but the stack left a lot of areas for detritus to accumulate...


Here's a pic as of August '08 after I tore everything down to plumb to the basement. Only one rock rests against the back glass.


Hope to be upgrading to a 250g soon that's 3' wide... should be much easier to aquascape compared to only 18".

i went with the pillar look because i like it and it allows swimming room for the fish. however i am not sure if it will make my coral placement easy
