I'm afraid of Nano tanks and Palludariums. There I said it.
Imagine giving a painter the same size canvas every day for over 5 years and having him paint on that. Every now and then you could throw in one that was a little smaller than normal, but for the most part they are all the same. (55s,75s, 40 highs, 125s and 220's)
(you might be thinking 220 is kinda outta the norm, your right, but I stared at it painfully for 2 years.)
So now I am faced with a smaller canvas and a half canvas. It's not that I don't think that I can still paint, Hell no. But I am just going to have to use very tiny brushes and be very careful. I'm also going to be making plants come up out of the water. (I do this but not all the time.)
So I am doing something that I believe more people should spend more time doing. I am thinking. I am just going to sit and look at the tanks and figure out what I am going to do. I'm gonna make a plan.
The good news is that there are some ideas flowing that I hadn't thought of before. Its good for my mind to be working in different directions and trying to fit my design in to different formats.
But don't go betting on me busting anything out any time soon. It will be a while...
I have lots of planning to do....
Here is a photo of the Winning 10 Gallon tank in my Dirted Tank Contest- Great work Tyler and good meeting you in Chicago.
