Aquascape by James Findley, The Green Machine: 'Through the Eyes of a Child'

http://www.thegreenmachineonline.com aquascaping specialists. This aquascape by James Findley is entitled 'Through the Eyes of a Child' because the rocks used were all chosen by his youngest daughter, Ellen. It demonstrates the chaos of nature: the beauty of perfect imperfection and the unrivalled ability of the child to appreciate this. As we age, it is common to lose the ability to appreciate the chaos of nature in the same way: we begin to look for ordered, organised patterns and learn to create symmetrical, structured forms. James explains that nature is chaotic and imperfect so an organised, ordered aquascape will never truly reflect the perfect imperfection of nature. Therefore to achieve the best results, James believes that an aquascaper must once again learn to see through the eyes of a child. He planted this tank to demonstrate this and the individuality, originality and beauty of this aquascape are striking. This scape is currently on display in The Green Machine (October 2010). It is a stunning, refreshing new style of aquascaping that has never been seen before: we are extremely proud to be able to display such a revolutionary and inspirational style of scaping. This aquascape is definitely worth viewing! Commissioned by Arcadia for the AQUA 2010 trade show.

I've used this guide to build something similar, except that, on the back right corner, I bought a plank/wood, build a tree by tying christmas moss to it. Will let it run and see how it runs. Had a few bigger stones setup, in a 13 gallon tank, and I'm having dwarf baby tears as carpet on substrate. Just built it a week ago, will let it run for 2-3 months, and I plan on adding some shrimps, most likely fire red shrimps, about 20 of them, and hopefully they enjoy the mosses off the tree.

A marvelous inspiration, well done. I house cichlids in my aquarium at the moment, but I'd love to make an effort for a proper aquascape in the future.
