Lovely forest aquascape

By Leonard Ho - Posted Nov 06, 2017 09:00 AM
Nigel's aquascape hasn't quite filled out yet, but the "bones" of this fallen forest scenery are already gorgeous. Nigel says he's new to aquascaping. Could have fooled me.

Nigel writes in his video description:

My forest aquarium at day 75. I added some moss with glue on the trees in the aquascape. It doesn't look that natural compared to fishing line. But it is very hard to use fishing line to put moss on the trees while they are standing up.

Feel free to give some critique :)
