Large pieces of Seiryu Stone were used in the Aquascape to provide a rocky outcrop view in the tank. These were supported upon polystyrene sheets in order not to stress the glass at the base of the tank. Once these rocks were positioned several pieces of Manzanita Wood were used to run through the cracks in the rock to provide a harmonious balance of rock/wood in nature.

Various mosses and Hemianthus callitrichoides "Cuba" were used to disguise the edges where the rock met the wood where the wood had been tied to secure it from floating.

Around this, several rocky hill stem plants were used alongside detail plants like hairgrass, crypts and Rotala 'Bonsai' to provide colour and diversity in the aquascape.

Pencilfish were used as a shoal in the tank alongside Red Cherry Barbs and Red Cherry shrimp.
