Rescaped my tank with Dragon Stone

Recommended Posts

Absolutely gorgeous. I love Ohko stone and all the nooks and crannies to put the epiphytes into. Your color contrast is striking. Is that Scarlet Temple in the back? I don't know the height of your tank, is the stone in the right back on a sloped substrate? I've been keeping my eye out for a tall (12-14") stone but haven't found one locally and I hate to pay shipping fees for stone, lol.

That is Rotala in the back left side. i am not sure but some have suggested that is looks like rotala orange juice or H'ra


there is also alternanthera reineckii mini, in front of that. The substrate is UNS controsoil and it is sloped up quite a bit in the back of the tank.

I like the dragon stone in there!

Thanks.20230108_081159.jpg.b2fa96c06c11e844e1fdf67e039e7cd0.jpg I used cotton balls and super glue to make the scape. I used the dust from the dragon stone to color the cotton balls to match the stone before gluing it.

Day 7, added some Bucephelandra tissue culture. Hopefully that grows in nicely.20230115_181700.jpg.e3358d5d1e26b32630e2140a83710e49.jpg

Well the bucephandra tissue culture was promptly eaten by the small army of red Rili Shrimp the inhabit my aquarium. I guess I will need actual plants going forward.

Neat! I have access to my roommate's 3D printer and never thought once about printing a skimmer guard like that when I had my old tank.

The 3d printing hobby is a rabbit hole that is almost as deep as the aquarium hobby. N3rd level 9+ for sure.

I like my rabbit hole hobbies, problem is, I find it WAY to easy to over do, over spend, etc and so forth. 😕
