    This tank has taken quite some time to setup. The most difficult parts were arranging the rocks to fit the tank. Also there are 200 3" potted plants (Eleocharis Acicularis) each one had to be pulled form its pot and the roots cleaned from the wool rock (about 5 mins per plant).


    This tank has the following:
    Cliff Stone
    Substrate black fluorite
    Christmas Moss
    Eleocharis Acicularis
    Monoselenium Tenerum

    Fish
    Siamese Algae eaters
    Red Phantom Tetra
    Cherry Shrimp

    PH: 6.8-6.9
    Injected CO2
    cascade filter
    32 w sterilizer inline w/canister

    cliff stone looks awesome, once the moss will fill have filled the gaps it will look even better!

    but the carpet around it, has no depth! :confused:
    where is the slope in the back?
    right hand side looks empty too..

    and what are the tank dimensions, this one kindaway doesnt look like 110gal (420liter) ?!?!

    Thanks for the reply. I do agree that it is empty. This rock was very hard to find (and very expensive to ship). I originally put a black barrier in the right corner with two 3/4" hole drilled in to it but the fish kept finding a way to get behind it and couldn't figure a way out so i had to remove it. I also thought i ordered enough rock but in hinesight i did not. I wanted the middle part to reach as close as possible to the top of the tank. I tried sloping the back but planting the potted plants messed up the slope. I kept trying to seat them correctly but I ended up having to take the extra gravel and sprinkling it on top to keep them from floating away. jho

    The tank dimensions are 48"L x 18"W x 31"H.
