NIgel, 

This layout looks well and with great proportions, the shadow play is also well achieved. 

Will you use only la plata sand? Try to put one or two stones on the sides of the path instead of having it to much straight. This is my pov, at least you will win a bit more depth  at the hardscape. 

I'll be expecting the development of this aquarium ;)

Hello thanks for you reply :)

Yes only la plata. I think I will use flame moss in the back as with stems in the back it is harder to transport them to the live contest. Stems can break.

Good tip about the path.

Thanks man

 

Vivarium is a big event for aquarium, terrarium etc. On that event there is a contest with 25 players which will bring there 40x30x30cm tank to the event (after giving the players 5 month time to let there scapes grow in). All the stuff for the tank is sponsored by companies. If you win you can keep it all yourself for free. If you don't win you can buy the scape for 100 euros. The companies sponsored: tank, light, cheap filter, soil, hardscape, plants.

 

Some clips of the hardscape. Enjoy :)

Top view of the mountain hardscape. Almost everywhere in the crevices I put some cig filters to make the hardscape strong as possible so I can transport it to the live contest.

Decided to try some fine leaved stems in the back. If it doesn't work out I can always go back to flame moss.
