"Studio Tannin" Scape 006 -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 aquascape features a beautiful pair of Malaysian Driftwood pieces, one of our favorite types of aquatic wood. Paired with a strong contingent of botanicals, such as "Savu Pods", Coconut Palm Stems,  and the warmth of Malaysian Yellow Mangrove Leaves, this hardscape brings a perfect blend of unique aesthetics and function. 

We can see this being a perfect display for a small group of Apistogramma, which would make great use of the many sheltering spaces offered by the wood and "Savu Pods." A small group of Corydoras would also be terrific in this aquascape as well! 

Regardless of weather you configure the 'scape as shown here, or add some plants for a crisp, contracting look, this is a memorable configuration that you'll love!
