    Hey Xylo
    Man thats pretty impressive!
    Creepy scifi / horror background track. Like Alien or something
    Do you have a formula for the moss? Milk, yoghurt?
    I think the tiny creeper is a fuchsia maybe F. procumbens. I can get that next week again if you want some

    Amazing seeing how they set it up & watching it grow. Just goes to show you have to be patient!

    +1 to the comments above - thanks for sharing. I love how the driftwood is indistinguishable even after three months of the tank being set up. How many of the materials used in the video are available in Australia though? It would be awesome to set up a moss scape like this.

    Anyone know how we can get hygroton or epiweb in australia? Or anything similar? Hessian or untreated cork tiles?

    Hygrolon and Epiweb, are completely unlike anything available anywhere. Impressive stuff, and VERY easy to work with!
    Acutally thanks to Ubtricky we have already become the official exclusive Australian distributors, and have a shipment already being packed for shipping due to arrive in 14 days.

    If anyone would be interested in this order, please visit Dusktropics and let us know what you need. For this first shipment we will be matching manufacturer direct pricing as an introductory special- so all you need do is use XE.com to convert the Swedish kronor (SEK) you see there, and pay a 50% deposit.
    we are looking forward to stocking the epiweb IIS system, in both panels and in complete plug n play desktop form!

    Heres some more inspiration:
    a green ouse created by one of the guys at Dusk to house his prize collection of over 1000 species of orchid. He of course uses hygrolon and even epiweb trees!

    This stuff is brilliant.
    I'm going to be using it in my paludarium build.
    If I can get to start my damn extension!

    This is the closest I can find to the look I am after.



    The Epiweb is the best product I could find for creating that mossy look.

    Cheers,
    Phil

    Adrian, what you are asking is just too hard. Why don't you post up or put on your webstore front the Aussie prices and quantities available since you are going to be the australian supplier. Hopefully my bugging Dusktropics directly has helped.

    SOrry, but first off we havent even received our first order, and what i am "asking" is not too hard, its a once only gesture to the community of offering direct pricing while shouldering the international freight and tax charges (this means its actually cheaper than Dusk right?). Not sure what you mean by bugging them directly or how it involves EA, but sure.

    All jokes aside, we are doing the best we can, and hope to have these products available for you guys asap. We didnt want to mention it till it was actually here but this thread was too tempting.
