    Hello together.

    I was a bit bored this afternoon and started a low light mini theme tank.
    The tank is 40 x25 x25cm but the only possible insight is the small 25x25 side. I use an air filtration over a foam-mat in the back.

    But enough words here are the first pictures.

    Very cool, and a bit frightening at the same time. The aquascape has a very errie feel to it. Maybe that's because of the horror movies I've seen depicting statues in overgrown environments, or maybe it's the statue seems like it's getting attacked/imprisioned.

    Nonetheless, very good, artistic aquascape.

    Some kuhli loaches would look cool in there slithering around. Too bad it is so small. How many gallons, about 4-5?

    Nice " hardscape".
    A crowntail betta would look great in there, would look like a dragon or, if it's red, a phenix.
    By the way Is it really a Shiva? Isn't it a buddha?

    What material is the statue made of?
    Are you sure it's not dangerous ie. metal--->rust=kills animals
    resin--->might be toxic
    it's paint, which might be dangerous.
    Or is it an aquarium ornement, since I know they sell some standing and sitting buddhas, and also nice buddha heads. I have been considering a similar tank, actually...
    Anyways good luck, great work!

    is that Shiva or Buddha? I would think it's the latter....although Shiva - the god of destruction (I think) is a cooler sounding name.....


    very cool aquascape regardless....

    I agree with Hooha. The statue is Buddha and not Shiva. Its a diffrent idea for a scape. Best of luck.

    BUt it's true that the temple of Shiva looks/sounds cooler and more mysterious than the temple of buddha. Why not just call it " the forgotten temple" or " the temple guardian", something mysterious:spy: (my idea sounds cheesy) How about " lost in the jungle" or " Lost for Eternity" ( i suck at aquascape names, as you may have realized):eek:
