    Hi everyone! Welcome to our brand new AQUASCAPE DISCUSSION forum!!!

    5.jpg
    We're really excited about this forum, and we hope it will fill up with great tips, discussions, questions, and of course LOTS of photos of aquascapes! Aquascaping is (at least) as much an art as it is a science, and there's a lot to learn about how to get the desired aesthetic effect, function, and real estate out of your scape. Be sure to share your journey with us here, and we'll all advance together!

    WHAT WE NEED: Some great experienced aquascapers to subscribe to this forum and help out with the questions and tips that will populate this forum.

    WHAT YOU CAN DO:
    1. Post your questions, musings, and tips here. START SOME THREADS!
    2. Subscribe to the NEW aquascape hashtags that can be used to alert you to new questions or posts about aquascapes: #greatscape #aquascapeart #scapewizard
    3. Use these hashtags to either encourage or call for help.

    This is awesome!

    The new forum, not my 'scape.

    But since a thread like this isn't much use without photos . . .

    Seems like there are two broad goals for an aquascape: make it a work of art (think Amano for SW) or make it look like a slice of the reef. I always go for the latter ..... and even occasionally succeed. Not a particularly big fan of the former.
