What is a good way to learn how to aquascape?

  • I’m not too sure that there is a good guide you can read that will help you. Most people try to follow the 2/3 ruling where you have 3/4 of the visual elements on one side, then a gap, and then another 1/4 on the last side.

    Other times it really just comes down to what you think is visually pleasing (which is an opinion, so that’s why people find art either good or bad). I just would follow what you think looks good, or if you want to try to become better at it, watch some aquascape competitions and see how they set it up and what they did specifically. A lot of time it’s all about the flow where the fish aren’t there or are there just as a color aspect.

  • I’d always recommend to just go for a general idea, and then write it down or use photos online to make a rough draft of how it would look. Then keep rearranging them until you find something that is appealing to your tastes, and go for it!

  • I go through many photos and designs and I try to incorporate the things which I like the most and make a design out of it.

  • I take my inspiration from the pics posted in the internet. Some are so aesthetically so pleasing and very easy to follow too.

  • I have this habit of always going to YouTube and watch tons of videos on anything that I don't have much knowledge on and it's always been helpful. On this note, I'm very sure that it's going to be helpful.
