• Welcome to ScapeCrunch!

    We are a friendly, online community of people interested in planted aquariums. We support and help each other learn and grow. It is our sincere hope that you will join us and find our tight-knit community valuable and fun!

    ScapeCrunch is different than Facebook Groups. Here's how:

    • It is a place where you can make long-term friends in the planted aquarium hobby and have long, multi-day talks on specific subjects.
    • Unlike social media, online communities like ScapeCrunch are much better at curating collective knowledge and in fostering deeper relationships.
    • They lend themselves better at long-form discussions.
    • You can maintain a thread on your personal aquarium with pictures and details. Other members can comment, help and ask questions. You can do the same with their Member Tank threads.

    Where Facebook is more like a large city-wide party, ScapeCrunch is more like your neighborhood bar "where everybody knows your name. And they're always glad you came." It's always fun to go to large parties but it's at the local bar that you feel people really know you. The great part is that you can and should go to both!

    Please consider joining to become a full fledged member of our growing community of planted aquarium obsessed enthusiasts. Let's grow together!

Just wanna share my garden style aquascape setup from cebu philippines

I really like this style of aquascape. Awesomely done, btw!

The plants look healthy but the trimming work is intense. If you haven't tried to keep stems in line, like this aquascape, you don't know the discipline and effort it takes. It's NOT easy.

It also breaks a LOT of rules modern aquascape composition and I love that! Sometimes symmetry works!
I assume that the center focal point plant is Anubias nana pinto white. This is one that I always have to look twice at. Five years ago, I would have freaked out that my nana is going into necrosis!
