The title, "Side of the Volcano," tank idea inspired by my time hiking mount Fuji in Japan. I think I might be ripping out the glosso in the front right corner though.

I have mixed feelings about this aquascape, and frankly my passion for aquascaping right now is not where I wish it was.

I'll try to get some more good shots before I take it down though (next week tuesday after I'm done with finals).


60cm x 30cm x 36cm
Aquasoil Amazonia (powder and normal)

Rotala macrandra "green"
Rotala rotundifolia "green"
Hemianthus micranthemoides
Myriophyllum sp.
Glossostigma elatinoides
Eleocharis accicularis

Neon Tetra
Flame Tetra
Gold Pristella Tetra
Penguin Tetra
Amano Shrimp

Loving it. Keep up the good work. I like how there are open spaces. Are you gonna grow out the glosso to cover up the open spaces? Keep us growing.

Hey Steven. It's been a long time. I really enjoy the open spaces in the fore ground. It breaks up the monotony of we see quite a bit with glosso.
It would look better if the glosso was tighter to the substrate. Still a nice tank
Very nice "island" scape!

The only thing I didn't like was those rocks on the right, they look camouflaged with the black soil...

See ya
@Snyper-- hey dude!

@Big-- well, not much I can do about that. Plenty of light, ADA fert regimen, I got the glosso creeping, but it did it's thing. *shrugs*

@Lucs-- Thanks! @Rocks-- Because when you go to a volcanic area, the black volcanic rocks are . . . different from the ground covered with smaller, black, volcanic rocks . . . i'll buy that.

BTW I ripped out everything and cleaned out everything today anyway. lol

I liked the final shot better than the first.

I wish my best 'scaping days were as good as your worst.

-hope finals went well
It did look great before you tore it appart.
