well copying your inspiration might end up causing someone to create something that looks like yours since both would be inspired by the same thing.

I have been following along and decided to jump in on this, going with a five gallon, and word on getting those ferts to Canada? or where I could buy them. I use Flourish Excel on all my other planted tanks. I am going to use a play sand substrate is that okay?

Fair enough, Can I join and I got the impression it wasn't allowed so it will go nowhere near it.

You can join as long as you follow the rules.
They are posted here: http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/f...k-54059/page9/ and the accepted styles here: http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/f...k-54059/page8/, and no flourish excel. That aint low tech.
List is opened till today, whoever else wants to join the contest post here today or forever hold your peace.
D day is 01.03.2011!

I thought this would be a fun challenge, but it's turning out to be a bit too tedius... I also had a revelation.

The challenge to build a planted tank with the same feel as japanese professionals....
Can I grow plants as healthy as the pros, and use low-tech?
absolutely, with a couple substitutions.
Can I photograph as well as the professionals?
doubtful.
Can I aquascape as well as them with my very first project?
very unlikely.

I'm still going to try, but meh.

ahah i was thinking this before this even started, what we may lack isnt the technical skills but the aesthetic experience to recreate the same feeling those styles had which is why I suggested that we should be allowed to make our own styles as long as it isnt just a toss wood and rocks/plant randomly and theres a rational for placement.
