Hello,

Nice hardscape.

For the pictures, I think it's better to store they directly on this forum. Here we have unfortunately many old topics with dead links, with external storage.

Regards,

Nice scape Nigel ! Maybe one more rock one the right background ? ;-)

Btw, that's always a pleasure to watch videos on your channel. I learned how to take macros thanks to you :merci:
Keep on scaping !

Thanks guys

Top view of the mountain hardscape. Almost everywhere in the crevices I put some cig filters to make the hardscape strong as possible so I can transport it to the live contest.

Decided to try some fine leaved stems in the back. If it doesn't work out I can always go back to flame moss.

14 days in dry start now. One week before flooding! I will add dhg mini, rotala wallichi, hemianthus micranthemoides to the scape right before flooding. When tank is stable/cycled I will add some HC and buce mini coin.

Strange thing is for my eye it looks more rocks are covered in moss since 14 days of dry start! But when comparing photos it even looks like some moss has fallen off due spraying the tank daily. Weird haha!

Room shot of the 40cm mountain scape (dry start) for Aquaflora Vivarium contest. Added a desk lamp to make sure everywhere will reach light. Also with more light I hope mosses will attach faster. Spraying twice a day with RO water to prevent buildup of lime on the glass. Two small openings for ventilation to prevent mold.

Sympa ! Why the hell do you have so many cigs without tobacco?  :rire:  :cool:
Good luck for the contest!
Maybe it's too early, but what about the mixture yogurt/moss? Effective or just fun to assess?

Some GDA on the rocks using quite some light in this scape. But I like it, gives a natural feeling. Still a way to go to get the moss in shape and stems above the rocks in the back.
