wow great photos.I remember my tank I had with all that rubbery fake coral stuff in it, at the time I thought it looked really cool, it was ok untill the algae started growing all over it and the paint chipped off, then I had an egypt themed tank and slowly progressed to wood and plants, more natural, much better.I suppose you have to go throught th the crazy phases and finally grow up lol.Like life, really!

So these rock set ups look amazing. Is it safe to have that big of rocks stacked up in the tank like that? Ive always wanted to do that, but scared something would break. Isn't the weight too much for the bottom or sides to handle?

I have 150 kg of rock in my tank but I did lay some perspex sheeting on the bottom glass.

Tanks are very tough the only problem is you lose water for the weight.
Rocks have to be scaped safe but natural nothing to fake i always rockscaped and just let
fish find there own caves.

Just in process of sinking and stripping of bark a lovely tree root its going to give me a real eye
piece and looks really natural to my rio negro biotope from vids i have.
Stocking.
30x wild cardinals(really looking great now well fed and glowing).
15x wild hemigrammus types (tetras came in with cardinals in same catch).
3 x wild cw51 large corys.very rare :-):
3 x wild checkerboards 2m 1f coloured up.
2 x wild portholes catfish 2 x wiptails.
Will post photos when all is done and lillys have grown.
