    Interesting concept. I can see that everything is being done using recycled materials and then constructed using your imagination. It would be great if the pictures can be accompanied by few sentences to explain and describe the actions.

    I supposed there's still more to be done with your work.

    Great - its like a surrealistic theater - a kind of aquascaping stage... and wonderfully clear.
    Reminds me of science fiction underwaterworlds... I could imagine glass marbles to it - I have some broken pieces of melted glass from glasblowing (in our area)... they are not very sharp edged - but I am frightened my fish may hurt one day. Maybe only for shrimps they would be ok...

    I'm very curious for your next project.

    This setup looks great! I'm glad you stayed true to what you had in mind from the start, so many of us get sidetracked into the popular scapes (me included).

    Well done 10/10 in my opinion.

    Cheers

    for the stairs, won't it be floating at the end? are you going to put some heavy stuff to weight it down? or you are going to glue it?
    anyway, good concept.

    Thank U Ericadesign,

    I didn't use them at the end but of course they need weight.

    Well frankly, I do not understand your art. I think you are better at taking photos than you are at aquascaping. I can understand that you are urban but sadly I can not see much of aquascaping any where.

    I went through this whole journal from the start, I noticed very good handy work from the beginning, but as I got further I got more and more confused.

    There are large plants close to the front and no depth.
