    Wow, that setup looks really good with the fish. It's almost like looking at an exotic pond or a swamp.

    Personally, I think it looks better without roots. But it's still a fantastic scape either way.

    Yeah lot's of time in this scape. Thanks! I really like the chihiros rgb but it all depends on your plant choice. Twinstar is pretty powerfull but not dimmable. Chihiros rgb is low/med light on my tank but enough for mosses and a few plants. Light is a bit high in Kelvin but I really like the colors and don't find it to blue.


    And thanks everyone for all the replies.

    Moss on the lava rocks has grown a lot. Also added some moss on the trees with glue. Not really happy with the result. Wish I used fishing line while setting up the tank. Now very hard / impossible to do with trees standing up. But still I think the glued moss is better than no moss. Enjoy the video!

    I think the glued moss looks alright, personally. Is your problem with the moss itself, or the placement?

    When using fishing line the moss is very tight to the wood and looks more natural. With glue it is just a piece of moss that is only attached at one point. The moss also gets very easy off when touching the wood.

    Re: Nigel's Forest scape 128L

    Were you thinking of trying it again with fishing line? Or would it just be too much trouble at this point?

    to me, better than the current one. rocks/soil are piled higher, roots are hence more accentuated, and trees are a little more creepy. can't wait for your next project!

    Nicely done, Nigel.

    I've always wanted a box to practice new layouts/arrangements. I'll probably keep one of the used tanks for this purpose once it's decommissioned.

    Can I ask, do you know what is the wood you're using called? I'm using the same type of wood for a future setup but I don't know what it's called.

    It's a great way to improve your hardscaping skills and really fun to do. For me the process of making hardscape is maybe even more fun than maintaining a scape.

    This wood is called spiderwood in my country.

    And Thanks Wan!

    Thanks, Nigel.

    Now I know what it is called and I also found out it's also called Redmoor wood.

    Hope I got that right.
