Anyone into Aquascaping / Iwagumi ?

I know I love planted tanks, but I am starting to see that I don't want just to keep it "free growing" so to speak. I was wondering if we have any aquascaping enthusiast and if you guys can please show off your tanks or lets post some links to our favorite aquascaped tanks

I am definitely in the market to get a large tank and keep it very modern, contemporary. I think it'll be eye catching to go with the general look of my new house so I'm trying to gather up as much inspiration. I'm trying to figure out ways to have adequate cover without being cluttered to have a successful sorority / community tank. Some scapes are a bit sparse for me to feel comfy to have a sorority.

Probably Dutch style tanks are my favorite. Lots of plants and they don't look cluttered if you keep them trimmed, there are tons of options on youtube.

Oh, I love Iwagumi!
Today, I'm going to change my 60 liter community tank into a 'river' looking tank with pieces of wood and maybe I'm going to use my seiryu rocks too
(I'll probably start a thread about how I'm going to do it )

Peachii Dutch styles seem to be a great idea for a sorority tank. Thanks, that is definitely a good direction to research! Something between the fullness of Dutch style and color variation and the clean lines of Iwagumi seems to be what I'm after.

VJM that first one is really cool. Normally not into decorations, but that use of the statue and the wood looks really cool.

Just for fun - look a hobbit aquascape!

I am totally obsessed with aquascaping and have gone through the last 5 years of photos of the winners of the AGA Aquascaping contest.

This was my first attempt at using the Golden Principle. I've been working on it since April.

The golden ratio's a good way to start :) Sometimes how the scape looks os really down to the hardscapeXD I'm trying to scape a waterless tank right now, and I've been moving things around for months!

Yes! It took me weeks to sort out how I wanted the hardscape to go. I ended up tying three pieces of drift wood together to make my large piece.

I'm already planning on rocks for the next project down the road.
