I LUUURVE your tank! It's so beautiful! I've read through the entire saga of your gorgeous tank. You've put so much work into this, I'm in awe of you.

I love the way you decorated the tank; it's so natural and mystical, practically untouched looking- except the writing on the rock of course. lol I love it. When I can start my own natural tank, I shall be coming back to this thread for inspiration. :D

Hey, what a stunning tank this has turned into! Love the rock formations, and everything looks so lush. I enjoyed your step by step pictures, too.

It's such a pleasure to read threads like this. :)

And awh, shrimpies. I somehow feel a tank isn't quite complete without a few.

Nice job, and the new betta is very handsome. :)

Here's an article on how the walls are built, I figure the technique is probably adaptable to aquascaping :P http://www.ehow.com/how_5569125_lay-...one-walls.html

It's definitely a more structured look than you are going for, but I wouldn't trust those round stones to not fall over and squish any creatures in the way. You could maybe glue them together with well placed globs of cement?
The rock wall idea is AWESOME!
I really like the idea of a rock wall in the back of an aquarium as a backdrop! That would be so cool!

Today I did pick up 7 rummynose tetras. I thought about going with rasboras but the only ones I really like are galaxy and my lfs didnt have any captive bred, plus they were twice as expensive!

i may pick up an assassin snail or two because I have a ton of snails and want to cut it back a bit. Im also considering some khulis or corys but im going to sit on that one for a while!

Do assassin snails assassinate others or something? [assuming from their name and your post!]
