I like the scapes that people build where they look somewhat natural but also have architectual uniqueness to them. I like the scapes that look like a sculpture. The link you gave has a couple really good examples of that.
yeah i love how they have planted, natural, architectural, etc. and still show how it needs to be put together and how the people actually accomplished that
Anyone else have ideas for aquascaping?
I am in LOVE with the first one, I wish I could get my tank to look half this amazing!
I also found something that may make it easier for some people who want custom stuff:
Reef on the rocks products seem pretty good. I actually ordered the C-1 column and 10 studs to drill my rocks to make them set up how I want when I redo my scape!
To be honest, their A-1 and A-2 arch setups look similar to the one MoJoe posted!
When it comes to cementing your rocks together, nothing beats Hydraulic Cement. This is especially true if you are going to be using dead rock, but works well with live, you just have to mist the rock while the cement cures. I've used it and tossed it right into the tank, some people soak it in RO/DI water to leech out PO4's. With hydraulic cement, you don't even need rods, which imo, the cheapest, best types are the fiberglass rods/reflectors, that people use to mark their driveways. Found at HD and Lowes. A bucket of Hydraulic cement, costs 9.00 which is enough to do 100 lbs. of rock easy.
Awsome info. Thanks
Has anyone else used hydraulic cement?
and does it work better than putty?
