This is a diorama forest scape in a 90x45x45cm tank constructed to mimic a forested cliff edge. Wood pieces are glued together with superglue and epoxy, arranged with larger pieces closer to the front of the tank and smaller pieces closer to the rear of the tank to give an illusion of depth. Similarly, larger plants are used nearer the front glass and finer textures are used towards the rear of the tank to effectuate the illusion of depth. The rear slopes and foreground sand lines angle to meet at the center of the image. Most of the plants used in this aquascape are slow growers to reduce trimming and maintenance; Cryptocoryne parva in the front foreground, Bucephalandra and mosses on the wood and rocks.
