Here at ScapeEasy we're really passionate
about two things... keeping things easy, and getting people aquascaping.
So when people reach out to us to help with the aquascaping of their
tanks, we're more than happy to help.If you've got an existing
aquascape you want advice on, are looking to rescape your tank, or are
starting building an aquascape from scratch, it's likely you've done
some internet research (and that's why you've landed here!) and will
have seen the often conflicting advice available and will be rather
confused with where to start - this is why this service was created...
to help make things easier by providing clear, friendly, personalised
advice. The e-aquascaping service will take you through all
the steps required to achieve your goals whether you are a complete
beginner looking to get into the hobby, or an aquascaper already and
looking to follow the ScapeEasy approach for your next tank. Upon registering
your interest in the service, you will gain access to your personal
online portal which will act like a chat room where you and Matt can
share photos, planting layouts, and Matt can give detailed advice on
hardscape placement etc. whatever is required.
The clients below were happy for their e-Aquascaping process to be made public.

This third tank will be a South American 'biotope' containing only plants and fish from South America. Biotope tanks are intended to emulate nature and so are a little bit different to normal 'pristine' aquascapes. We plan to use botanicals and minimal numbers of plant species to add to the feeling of a 'slice of nature'.
In the second in the series, we are aquascaping a tank for South American schooling fish and a bristlenose pleco. For this reason we have chosen to make use of the Mopani wood that Donna had available. This wood can be tricky to aquascape with, often consisting of large flat pieces. Matt suggested a tree stump, diorama style scape.
Donna had a lot of fish and therefore a lot of tanks, so keeping things low maintenance was high on the agenda, as was ensuring a natural habitat for the various species she kept. Donna was also nervous of her plant growing abilities - the challenge was set!
