Bermuda Scape Progression

January 17th, 2014

A few days ago I introduced the Bermuda inspired aquascape in my 33g cube. Here is a bit more of a progression from hardscape to more/less completion from July to October.

Hardscape – July 6, 2013

The hardscape is quite barren, but I really wanted the represent the sandy beach.

Just Planted – July 6, 2013

After planting, the original goal was to continue to leave a lot of exposed sand, with just minimal scrubby plants lining some of the rocks.

A few weeks of growth – July 27, 2013

I added more varieties of plants to provide lots of different textures from the plants. This seems to be fairly representative of the dunes that have lots of different flora.

Several months of growth – October 13, 2013

The plants all grew in, reclaiming most of the sand. While this is not necessarily the original intent of the scape, I like how it’s evolved and like the mixture of different plants. I never completely groomed the plants to create that final photo, but enjoyed it nevertheless. It is still up and running today, but is even more overgrown. I’ll post an update soon.

    Thanks for the comment, Christoph! The main fish you can see are Blackbanded Sunfish (a north american native), and black neon tetras. There are some pygmy cories, a SAE, and ancistrus as well.
