    i think this is not for long term setup. since sand would definitely go astray and messy. but it sure looks great though. :)

    im not for this design, it looks too much. it would be better as a feature without all the fish and plants.

    @Highway: good texture with the rock plants to the left of the waterfall. You may want to make the light less purple so that there is a focal point. The waterfall and the light are both competing for attention. The fish are gorgeous, though! What kind?

    sounds kind of cool. crafty for sure, but it seems like one of those things you need to be sensitive with, because it can go wrong in a bunch of ways imo.

    Hello Mr. John, some time ago, around youtube I saw a video showing a waterfall underwater aquarium, after some research I tried to build one for my aquarium.
    I used the same method described in the magazine, using the air in the porous stone to create a vacuum to suck the quartz sand;
    with stones dragon I created the structure of the cascade, in the lower part I created in a plexiglass container to catch the sand and direct it to the riser tube.
    my problem is that at the waterfall seems to work, although with little out of the sand, but after a short time, crashes, because the sand becomes clogged in the tube and can no longer go back.
    what could be the problem?
    thanks and good work
    This is a picture of the waterfall built by me
