Aquascaping Tips - How to add depth and direction using Dragonstone

Here's some quick tips and video on how to aquascape with our molded Dragonstone.

  1. Use the largest piece of Dragonstone as a focal point and place it off center (use the Rule of 3rds and place it 1/3 or 2/3 from either side.) The larger stone will become the first visual focus and glide the viewers eyes towards the rest of the aquascape - creating a more captivating and relaxing experience.
  2. Angling the stones and branches will give a sense of direction. To keep the viewer centered, angle the stones from the center out.  You can also angle the stones in one direction to lead them into a certain direction (such as in or out off a room).
  3. Use lots of short and colorful foreground plants. This will create a striking contrast in both color and size.
  4. Leaning stones towards the front of the aquascape will cast shadows over the foreground. This adds a sense of depth and will make the aquarium appear larger and deeper than it really is.
  5. Tuck foreground plants under the edges of the Dragonstone and add some smaller size accent stones. This will blend all of the elements in your aquascape together and create a more natural, aged look.
