    Roy this always has a soft spot for me as every thing started from here and all the fun we had doing that Aquascape.

    For some reason I cannot find the finished Aquascape.

    I have lost the number of times I have suggested to new Aquascapers look at Nature for inspiration its every where all you have to do is just open your eyes and look.

    Both of my Terrascape is full of natures bits and pieces to me its far more interesting than the regimented perfect Aquascape.

    Going back it proves one very good point you have to work with the tank and not against it, as they never stop changing.

    That makes me think what will the 5ft Terrascape look like as it matures.
