It very good looking, I'm sure it will grow well. I usually don't like statues and stuff like that but this one you have could be better placed!
Are you filtering the water section?

Oooh this bumped up there on my favs list... Looks great.
Once it grows in, it will be up there with revolutions :)

What did you use to make the background?

looks really good so far and will look aswesome once grown in alittle. The only thing i think you can do without is the plastic guage(they arent very accurate and look ugly) and the plastic tiki guy. everything else looks so natural and that just stands out looking so artificial. thats just my opinion though. great job!

Wow that's an honor cause Revolutions are Really Really impresive i follow his work all the time . The background is great stuff and cork bark with coco fiber covering the great stuff.

Your right i want this tank to look like i took a piece of the rain forest and set in the tank its not bad for my first tank build i think, the next one will be better for sure thx for expressing ur opinion hope u enjoy my next couple project coming soon.

You killed it man!! Great job! I have to agree with the earlier post...not a big fan of the guage but I think the tiki head makes it yours and I like it. What size exo is that?
Thx alot the tank is an exo terra 36" x 18" x 24" im planing on getting 36" x 18" x 36" to do a dart frog setup should be a challenge but i like a good challenge lol.:D

The background is Cork bark some really nice looking shapes and then i filled in the gapes with great stuff i covered the great stuff with brown ge silicone then i coated that with coco husk shavings the waterfall area is a really nice shaped cork bark it has a perfect shape to hide the pvc tube behind it where the pump sits in.
