Default Pinheiro manso

Hi everybody!

Sorry to have lain and the secret about this aquarium!
I know that some of you will compare it to my old aquarium Syrah but I needed to test it again; and I hope that you appreciate it...
With this layout I have used some different trim's technic and Utricularia for simulate the grass field

The inspiration came from the place where I leave and of course... on "Pinus pinea" = "Pinheiro manso".


Click on the picture to enlarge!

It's all for now... new pictures are coming about Step by step and development!

Cheers,

Filipe Oliveira

It's seldom that a planted tank is truly perfect. This one is!

Among the other things that make this tank VERY natural looking is the somewhat bald area in front of the tree - just like many trees appear in nature.

Bravo, Filipe!

Yes Filipe!
I love it. You've recreated a stone pine "to a t" as we say here.
What are your flora and fauna besides the utricularia?

I think I may like this better than your old scape.

The threadfins are super nice. Is this the same size as your old Syrah Planurah?

when you grow the grass foreground, how do you get it to fill in so nicely under the shaded areas that the tree creates? do you grow the tree last or at the same time as the foreground?
