A. I think you did it--this really looks Indiana Jones!

B. Where did you get the cool 'severed head' piece? [I have a certain nostalgia for "aquarium ornaments"!]

C. How refreshing that it's not another rocks-n-grass amano rig.

D. Fun and well done--thanks for the treat!

This is really awesome. Definitely one of the most convincing reclaimed jungle scenes I've ever seen.

That has turned out great. The headdress for the guy really grew out nicely. I like what you did in the top right corner with the moss.

The tank is finally balanced. The anubias petite is doing GREAT!
Its looking great! How are the cherry shrimp doing? Did you get any sukura red baby shrimp yet?

Beautiful! I love to see tanks that are done well in a style other than "nature aquarium".

The tank definitely matches the theme. Great job!
Where did you buy the petrified wood at? Those are some really nice pieces.
I'm in OC too so hopefully it's local.
