I recently found an awesome peace of DW; a eucalyptus root which I thought would be ideal for scaping.
I'm kind of envisioning the root embedded in rock, but it's a tricky manoeuvre to pull off so it looks convincingly natural.

Specs:

Tank: 60x40x25cm(h)
Stand: IKEA hacked Besta cabinet
Light: EcoTech Radion XR15 Freshwater LED
Filter: Eheim Ecco Pro 300 with Cal Aqua Labs lily pipes
CO2: Fire Extinguisher, Dual Stage Reg and UpAqua Inline Atomizer
Steriliser: TwinStar Nano II
Fertz: TNC Complete
Substrate: Amazonia
Rocks: Seiryu Stone
DW: Eucalyptus Root

Holidays are as good as over, so my attention has returned to the shallow.
I rejigged the right hand side of the scape a bit, and then got busy with the glue gun and added a bit more wood.
The carpet plants arrived today as well, along with some mini Christmas moss and Pelia, so I'll do some planting tomorrow.
I'm going to try the dry start method with this scape. The level substrate should lend itself to DSM pretty well :)

I love it! :) will you have any emersed plants on top of the stump? cant tell but it looks like it emerged a bit from the water that'll be in there.
