Juan Puchades Rufino 1

This aquascape is by Juan Puchades Rufino. Impressive rock ridges direct the eyes towards the horizon in the distance. This effect is achieved by building up the rock sides tall, starting closer to the front of the tank, tapering to the rear, and then utilizing a steep slope (note the distance of horizon from the base). There are many great details in this aquascape; from the rock detailing in the foreground to the rooted anubias on the hardscape. Over hanging rock also creates shadows that contrast with rock highlights to give them dramatic form.
