This is a small scale diorama making use a dramatic wood arc with supporting Seiryu rock in a 45x26x30cm tank. The wood structure is the main feature in the aquascape, used closed to the front of the tank to contrast with the fine sand path leading to the rear. The structure also casts shadows in the middle of the aquascape, contrasting with the lighted front and rear portions. As the tank is small, only fine leaved plants are used to stay consistent with the sense of scale. All these decisions build the sense of scale in a small tank. Different species of mosses are layered for increased variety and textures on the wood.
