That looks awesome!! Well done!

I really think it's so much more satisfying making your own than going into a shop and buying them.

Just one word of warning... I'm assuming it's quite heavy? When placing it in the tank, keep a good grip around the bottom... just in case.

i wonder if i could build a flat wall out of these rocks so i can use it as a waterfall for a half and half tank for frogs?

would it cause problems with all that weight on one side of the tank?

Did you test them in the Bucket thingy first?

How are the fish taking to them?


When can I put an order in?

Want to buy my 4ft fish tank and stand?

Ask me how today!

you can put an order in but it will cost you the equipment and labour... so 20 bucks for labour and whatever the other bits and pieces are
