    I have never seen any thing like that its limitless what can be done with backings.

    My Screen Saver is a very realistic tropical reef only thing its all done by computers.

    I like the colourings of those rocks except the back LH rock it looks out of place. I would like to recommend a few changes to the Front rocks as they look over crowded plus "could" be restricting the water flow.

    [​IMG]

    I would take out rocks 1,2,3. Where No2 2 was I would replace with No1, then twist the front a little to the left.

    This will give you a greater water flow plus open the front up.

    The large brown rock behind No2 looks out of place.

    When No2 is removed could it be placed in that position?

    I am not satisfied with this tank also. Coloration and "stripes" are the essence of these stones and they must be pointed out by the setting. Shape and texture - nothing special.
    Problem is that I have only those few stones (Took it from a friend). Those are 3 big bolderes and one smeshed + one slightly different coloration.
    I will try to find better position and better substrate to emphasize beauty of these stones...

    Meanwhile:
    New one, same size (12 lit), iwagumi, named "Drinstone", just flooded...
    I think that it will be "Betta 2" Tank

    Re the Iwagumi remember "Less is best" and KIS and it will be another winner for you.


    This tank the rock positioning is excellent but I think less will be better.

    Remove 1 & 3 and think about 2

    3. Will give you an uninterrupted substrate across the front of the tank.

    1 & 2 Sorry to say look like you had a few stones over and decided that will do which is not like you at all.

    Again you are right,....(y)
    "Less is more..."
    These three are exess.
    I found this unusual stone, named it (by the founding site - mountain river Drina) and for the first time I am playing with it. Rinsed out concrete or petrified clay - who knows???
    I had it enough, so I played with it, explored structural combinations different layouts, etc. I saw that three terraces are OK but I overplayed and went fora a five... For photographic purposes five terraces are too much but in a 3D, extra layers (terraces) give more dinamics to this "sculpture". With 5, there are more hidden places and interesting spots to bee explore (from different viewing angles)..

    I often say "You" the poster can see the tank far better than we can as all we have is a photo and "You" have a far better view of what every thing looks like.

    The last one is "cherry on the top of cake" with 180 deg. viewing angle.
    One photo to illustrate it and to show you the overall idea of Pandora Project.
    Work in progress....

    Congratulations on having so many beautiful tanks and, every thing is so neat clean and tidy.

    How many main power outlets do you have in that room as you certainly require many power boards/points. At a rough guess each tank requiring three points that would be 18 with out your computer etc.

    That is a fantastic number of outlets and I assume its all on one wiring circuit breaker/(Fuse).
