So over the years I've learned how to keep fish, then how to grow plants, and all the tips and tricks and D.I.Y. methods that come with these things, but one thing that I think goes overlooked on this site is aquascaping.
Its such a vast topic, I know, but the thing about it is that for the most part, it can not simply be researched. I know you can find things like "Don't center your focal point", and "tall plants in the back and short plants in the front". But thats not what i'm getting at.
What I want to know is how do people make these huge hills with out a massive rockslide, how they make mountains and trees and rock ledges. All these things are more methods and secrets we develop over time and we need to start sharing them.
I know most beginners will probably not be interested in this at the moment because they will be to busy trying to get their amazon swords to grow, rather than where to put them, but I think once everyone on this site starts to realize the importance of aquascaping and how much there is to learn about it, we can turn our crappy bedroom fishtanks into something we're finally allowed to display in the living room.
I mean don't you look at tanks like these and think "Wow, I suck."
Ps. I was going to post this in the aquascaping section of the forum like I would on other sites, till i realized we don't even have one!
