In this one, I do something that many of you have been requesting for years now. I'll give you an in-depth look at how I scape my tanks. I also set up a few for demonstration. I wanted to show the ENTIRE process, so it's a long one!
I really hope that many of you get some good takeaways. If I were to scape a tank for real, I would do exactly what you see in this video. Keep practicing, experiment, and always remember to stop scaping and listen! I'm telling you, it helps me a lot and I know it can help you too.
Originally I planned to put this on my second channel, but as I worked through the video, I thought it could be more appropriate for this channel. It's also my longest video yet! Can't get enough? Then is probably the video for you. Enjoy!

I typically show a 1-2 minute clip of me scaping when I do. Although I think that will suffice in most cases, I wanted to do it differently in this one. I think it could be really helpful if you see the entire process from start to finish. Let me know which scape is your favorite! Also, this is my longest video yet! This was originally intended for the second channel, but I felt that it was more appropriate for this channel. I really hope you all enjoy it and learn something that can take your art to the next level.

It’s interesting to think about these in 3 categories: aesthetic, natural, and abstract. Some compositions may not reflect ideal aesthetic but still evoke nature (a natural look). While other low aesthetic placements seem to confuse the eye as an abstraction.

Hi Tanner! Thanks for what you do with the channel and your professionalism. Thanks for all the creativity and hard work. I'm somewhat of a dabbler. I am trying to find some more containers to plant in. I don't have the space you have or the hardware, just looking for some small stuff. I suppose I'm just really looking for some links to buy terrarium/vivarium/paladarium supplies. Resources discussing or linking to these topics? Thanks for your continued efforts!

I'd totally love to work on something related to this. Aquariums, terrariums, even decorations for walls. I also have a degree in arts and a master's degree in graphic design and I totally agree that creativity can and must be trained. I really hope the universe gives me a job related to this fantastic hobby. For now I'll keep rearranging my aquariums and aquaterrariums every now and then. Cheer mate.

This may sound dumb but can’t I use what I find outside ? For instance my uncle lives in the mountains and I can get several different types and sizes of rock. I live about 50 miles from the ocean and I can find all kinds of drift wood. I know to scrub anything I put in my tanks. I suppose I’m wondering if there’s a reason why I should buy from the pet shop.

I havent even decided what rocks and/or wood to buy since I'm so indecisive. Few days later: I bought a couple pieces of mopani wood which I thought had some potential, but I'm not sure what else it needs.

The WHOLE BOAT lol Your designs really are inspiring so I'm learning all I can to try and custom build a dope tank for my baby Chinese water dragon once winter is over! Any tips or videos on that project would be super awesome! Thanks for sharing your art & passion. As a BA in game design & 3 associates in graphic design for web, print & multimedia I know exactly where your coming from with the rule of 3rds, creating balance, symmetry and flow thru the use of negative space and shape of the materials. Mad respect! Cheers!

It would be interesting if we can create a scape from our garden material. I initially like the video that you made a terrarium from your garden materials. You have a very artistic and logical skill. The harmony of the materials used is very important in art.

I spend a ridiculous amount of time watching AM-posts because I find it easier to concentrate on things with something on in the background. With that said, this may be the most helpful aqua scapping video I’ve ever seen. This is Incredibly helpful no matter how much time you’ve spent in this hobby. Seriously brother, you’re on fire with all of your content but this video is mandatory for anyone interested in aquariums. (Wet or Dry) How can we support your content? $$$

Thank you for such a detailed vid! I’m building a wall to wall bookcase and turning it into a greenhouse. One of the bookcases will be solely for shingling plants. I want it to mimic the forest floor. I watched your other vid on substrates and took lots of notes! AGAIN. THANKS FOR SUCH GREAT CONTENT
