Re: Offical FW FTS Thread

new one since my last post in this thread




thanks, I really dig the way antlers look in aquariums, fish use it constantly to spawn on.

I just need a 500g tank so I can get a FULL european elk mount in the tank.

Beautiful tanks everyone! Thank you for posting your pictures. Some of the layouts are very inspiring and give a lot of ideas to others how they could better improve their tank layout.

Scuff: I love the look of your tank and how simple it is with just java fern and moss. That's kinda how I want to do my 40g breeder

And all the tags are really great looking very inspirational

Re: Offical FW FTS Thread

I've been doing aquascaping for about a decade now, so I've got a good feel for when to use symmetry and when not. My displays aren't quite at the level of, say, Amano; but I think they look rather nice. I especially like the low, wide tanks for this sort of thing, since they give you a great depth of view.


The Rules: Read them, learn them, lick them, love them.

Re: Offical FW FTS Thread

40B would look nice with a concave design as well as a triangular design.

It becomes second nature once your develop the eye for it.

Study the pro's lay outs, , watch videos, talk to people, then lay it out the way you like it.
beauty is always in the eye of the beholder and frankly some people have sour grapes for eyes.

Kinda, more of a influence of poor attitudes.



DMAX, looking great. I got a discusautolinker.com autolinking image like yours as well, minute it got in the planted tank it peppered like crazy.
