That's super cool... did you take pics along the way while you were building it? That'd be cool to seeas a DIY thread. Unless you made a thread already for it... i haven't looked. :)

Quite ingenious, and very well done.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Looks better with the plants... It would be awesome to get a large swordplant or some jungle vals to plant in the low spot... The Vals would easily grow up to the surface.

yeah i agree, i did put some amazon swords in but they eventually shrunk down and died away iv not had much experience with plants.
i could do with a plant that would take lots of nitrates out my water since my tap water is also high in nitrates.
