    Here are some Great Aquascaping Articles

    Hey guys

    I just thought I'd post these links to two great aquascaping articles from the same site which I just noticed is hosted in South Africa :) The articles talk a lot about 'the rule of thirds', establishing a strata line and creating depth - which are the three key areas to creating an aesthetically pleasing and natural looking aquascape.


    This one is specifically on a reefscape.

    This one gives background information on techniques like the rule of thirds and using strata lines.

    Also, here's an example of the rule of thirds in the thread 'Guide on Aquascaping'

    Enjoy! :)
