4ft - Work in progres

Finally bought myself optiwhite 4x2x2ft with 15mm glass. Have not start to do anything yet, even though it is already end of February.

3ft - Reminiscence (2016)

Sorry I haven't been updating blog for very-very long, I'm out of touch for about 2 years. I've been busy with office work and some family issue doesn't help me either.

My 2016 scape was inspired by scenery at Kamikochi during my Japan visit right after the 2014 NA party. Kamikochi is one of popular place in the Northern Japan Alps of Nagano Prefecture. It has spectacular mountain scenery with river/stream running in between.

The photo below was taken at around 6am, the temperature was -1C. We did not expect to be so cold and didn't bring any jacket. Actually didn't even aware it was below zero until when we get back to hotel for breakfast.

To be honest I did not expect much on my scape this time around due my limited time working on the scape. Fortunately I still manage to get top 100, world rank 47 of IAPLC 2016. However, surprisingly I won the Sumida Aquarium award. I was so shock when they called my name. I froze for few moment looking left, right and the screen to confirm whether it is real or just my imagination.

3ft - Hopes

There was a question about how the rocks being stack up. Unfortunately I do not have a picture of the step. Too much work with so little time. It is tough to prevent 3yrs old son to stay away during my scaping work, taking photos of the step exponentially increase the time needed to complete the scape.


I have only the final pic before planting.
