NPT Hill

I'm thinking I'd like to create a hill in the back right corner of my new NPT since it's going to be the farthest away from the light of the window. I am wondering how to go about this. Should I build up my mud in that area so the hill isn't just made of pure sand? Anyone have pics of what they've done?

A rock then cover it in mud will probably be more stable.

yup I think choclate is right. in the aquarium if you want a hill... you make a slope from rocks then cover it

Well it'll have to wait until the next tank, I had just enough mud to do a flat bottom and not a handful more, and I'm out of potting mix :P

yeah you need something to stabalize it, either rocks or egg crate or something. I had a hill that I used a cave to stabalize, worked out great.
