Here's a pic they had posted, though:



A couple of slate tiles are cheap and Home Depot, etc. I have to try this sometime!

Wow! I'm sure any fish would love to check out all those little cracks and holes! That looks amazing!

oh what a neat idea! 8D I know the other forum had the slates flat against the tank and in the cracks the person added moss in it to look natural. =) I will have to find the link...

Sorry if this has been mentioned in the thread (I didn't have the time to go through and read all 76 pages!) but to those with the smaller tanks what heaters do you use? I want to have a betta at work and his tank would have to be heated because the temp in the building ranges from 68-72. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Saw some nice looking tanks as I skimmed the thread as well!

Ah, yes, I saw that one, too. It IS a nice effect. I think I like the stacked look a little better, however. :) More similar to your background, too.

Depending on the size of your tank I would recommend a Hydor Theo or one of the little BettaStik 7.5 watts. That one is not adjustable though so you may need to use a timer with it.

Also, when I was taking pics, a ray of light was shining on Wil's tank and showed me something I had no idea...
As you see in his first pic, he looks solid red. Well, sunshine told me otherwise!
