"Studio Tannin" Scape 001 -Curated with Johnny Ciotti

One of our favorite things is creating amazing aquascapes with the natural materials we work with. Part of the art of aquascaping is curating the selection and arranging these materials into a cohesive theme, and we felt it would be amazing to be able to deliver a complete hardscape, with all components curated and conceived to work together perfectly!

Hence, the "Studio Tannin" line was born... A range of bespoke 'scapes from some of the most talented in the business. You'll get a complete hardscape, with wood, botanicals, and rocks. All you need to add is the aquarium, substrate, water, plants, and fishes.  We'll even include some extra botanicals to replenish the initial ones as they decompose! You can assemble as shown here, or use it as the starting point of a completely different 'scape! And of course, feel free to use this design as a "template" to create your own 'scape by selecting your own materials from. our extensive collection here on the site!

This 'scape was curated by the extremely talented Johnny Ciotti, who has done amazing aquarium work recognized all over the world. He's the creative talent behind some of our compelling photos and videos, and his 'scapes are highly respected in the aquascaping community. A real "pro's pro", Johnny brings an intense passion and dedication to every project.  We're excited to be collaborating with him on a series of unique "Studio Tannin" aquascapes.

This one features a beautiful combination of popular Black "Ryhou Stone" and intricate Borneo Senggani Root as the main hardscape. It's accented with a simple, purposeful selection of botanicals that plays beautifully off of these elements: "Pequeno Pods", Guava Leaves, and Fishtail Palm Stems.

Johnny and I were really feeling a definite "Asian" vibe with this scape, and we love the open/negative space in the layout. The setup would be ideal for fishes like Rasbora, small Barbs, Danios, or even Glass Catfish! Of course, you could go "rogue" and do small South American Tetras, as well!

The possibilities for this hardscape are only limited by your imagination!
