Nicely done, I think it looks pretty cool! Happen to have any build pics? Or would you be able to describe how you made it? I'm hoping to do something similar for my newest tank. What background material did you use for the roots? I like the dark coloration

Pretty much same kinda concept as Raf's tank made it with pvc and nylon rope. The roots on the side walls sticking out have wire in them to hold the shape. I used a mixture of Ace acrylic bonder,grout and coco fiber In main spots and the side roots were silicone and cocofiber with some of the mixture brushed on. didn't take any build pics but I have some projects coming up ill take some build pics for ya guys.

I know thats where you got the concept from. Raf's tank is the greatest. Im going to try it too.

This is the same size as the viv I brought a while back but have yet to work on...your build has inspired me to make some progress. How long would you say it took you to the back ground?

Dizzle21,
Thanks for the response. Now I know how long I will need to go "missing in the basement" when construction starts :).
