Excuse me for being slightly off-topic in that this comment/question does not directly relate to the art but the mechanics of the aquascape.

How does one manage to build and then maintain a scarp slope of 20-40 degrees in water? I assume there must be a fair amount of rock (or filler) underlying the mountain with pockets of growing substrate, some pockets deep while other pockets less so. And there must have been a fine balance maintained between getting the ground cover plants to grow fast and keeping the substrate sloped to such a high degree. Once the ground cover is in place, I assume the plant roots will hold the aquatic soil pretty firm and sloped (much like stabilizing a sand dune with various grass types etc).

The trade secrets are what we need.
