 Hi  Friends,
 
 I  am  trying  a  treescape  on  one  of  the  old  tank  which  was  empty  from  a  long  time.  Please  let  me  know  your  suggestions  &  views  on  this  scape.
 
 Specification:
 
 Tank  Dimension     :  21”  x  10.5”  x  12”
 Tank  Capacity         :  11.46  Gallons  /  43.36  Liters  approx.
 Lighting                       :  36w  Osram  Delux  L  PLL  6500k  (3.14  W/G)  
 Filtration                     :  Not  Yet  decided  (HOB  or  a  small  internal  Filter)   
 Substrate                    :  Potting  Soil  +  laterite  gravel
 Hardscape                  :  Driftwood  +  Rocks
 CO2                              :  Will  Start  with  DIY  and  soon  upgrade  to  pressurised   
 Flora                              :  Left  Side  -  Echinodora  tenelus  ,  Right  Side  -  Eleocharis  parvula,  Moss  on  driftwood  tip  which  should  look  like  a  tree  leaves.  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Thanks,
 -Vishwa.

 First  get  small  branches  and  stick  them  on  that  main  stump  with  super  glue/  Favi  quick  to  give  it  a  tree  structure.  Then  you  can  use  Christmass  moss  to  form  the  tree.

 Thank  you  guys  for  the  replies,
 
 @  Koushik:  Thanks  for  the  encouragement.  Yes  it  is  white  sand.
 
 @  Vidhyasagar  &  Tirtha  da:  Thanks  for  the  idea.  I  know  it  will  not  suite  but  did  not  able  to  find  the  right  one.  For  this  only  I  have  searched  almost  a  month  so  compromised  with  the  current.  I  have  some  Taiwan  moss,  Will  it  look  good  if  I  use  that.
 
 Thanks,
 -Vishwa.

 i  guess  that  nothing  will  beat  Christmas  mos.  and  follow  the  idea  which  tirtha  gave.  stick  the  small  branches  carefully  to  the  main  stump  trying  as  close  to  mimic  natural  tree.  do  not  give  the  tree  that  umbrella  look.

 Hi,
 
 To  add  to  all  the  suggestions  by  everyone,  I  would  suggest  you  to  finish  completing  the  the  skeleton  of  the  tree  and  soak  it  in  water  before  you  fill  the  tank.
 
 Regards,
 Surya

 Most  of  the  time  you  will  not  find  a  readymade  driftwood  like  a  tree.  So  you  have  to  make  one  as  per  your  teste.  The  most  popular  tree  scape  by  Filipe  Oliveira  contains  19  small  pieces  of  woods  to  make  that  tree.

 I  have  never  done  a  tree  so  have  no  comments  on  that
 
 But  I  have  had  to  rip  out  Ech  tennelus  since  it  tried  to  take  over  my  18  inch  tall  tank.  Looking  for  something  that  grows  lower  might  be  a  good  idea.  Especially  since  your  tank  seems  to  have  only  12inches  height.

 Just  a  small  experience  sharing.  Try  for  a  guava  tree  branch  (middle  to  top  part).  It  usually  have  the  most  branches  naturally  grown.  Then  just  do  some  DIY  work  to  make  and  use  it  as  a  driftwood  (so  no  more  cut  and  join).  Anyways,  keep  updates  posting  and  all  the  very  best   Thumb Up

 Hi,
 
 @  muddassar:  Thank  you  for  the  suggestion,  will  try  Christmas  moss  than.  I  dint  able  to  follow  “do  not  give  the  tree  that  umbrella  look”,  Can  you  please  explain.
 
 @  Surya:  Thank  you.  Soaking  in  water  is  just  to  make  sure  the  toxins  in  glue  will  not  leach  in  the  tank  right?
 
 @  Tirtha  Da:  Will  try  to  look  for  another  driftwood  which  I  can  easily  make  changes  or  will  go  with  the  current  one  adding  branches.  If  you  have  a  link  for  Filipe  Oliveira’s  tank  please  share  it.  My  current  scape  is  also  inspired  (in  correct  words  trying  to  copy  exactly  Chuckle  )  by  one  of  this  tank.
 http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/forumapc/library/38828-april-2007-tank-month-filipe-oliveira.html
 
 @  Unni:  I  am  using  E.  Tennelus  in  my  other  tank.  In  my  case  it  is  right  opposite  to  yours,  Growth  rate  and  spreading  is  excellent  but  they  have  stick  to  the  surface.  So  moving  them  to  this  new  one.
 
 @  Scorpio:  Thank  you.
 
 @  Koushik:  Thanks  for  sharing  your  experience.  Can  I  try  apple  guavas  branch  as  I  don’t  think  I  can  get  a  guavas  branch  easily.
 
 Thanks,
 -Vishwa.
