DOOA STYLE #15 ‘A dynamic layout composition, depicting an outcrop of rock’

For this layout, I used flat Manten Stone pieces which are as wide as the aquarium tank, DOOA Neo Glass Air W20×D20×H20 (cm). They may look little too big for the tank size, but their presence can be nicely reduced by placing them diagonally. By arranging the rocks in an inverted V-shape, I was able to create a sense of stability as well as a scene in which water and sediment are flowing over the bedrock of the stratum and carving it away. In addition, when viewed diagonally from the right, the surface of the rock is exposed without any plants, expressing a dynamic rock outcrop. In order to achieve this, I placed a face of the Manten Stone that looks particularly expressive on the right side. Moreover, I was able to adjust the scale of the layout to meet the ideal level by adequately planting small Bucephalandra. Some of the plants are reused from the previous layout. Considering the small tank size, I used Tropical River Soil to control the growth rate of the plants.
The central part of the stone arrangement represents a vegetation growth in an accumulation of earth and sand between the scoured rocks.

Tropical River Soil allows gradual growth of fast-growing Sonerila and Argostemma. That is one of the techniques used for making small size paludariums.
