most attempts to create a scene like this result in utter failure... generally looking like a 10 year old designed it.

you've done one hell of a job here. very inspiring.

The last pic blew me away. It looks just like something out of tomb raider. Great job.

I'll be honest, I didn't like the scape in the begining, but man it really looks great as you added more petrified wood and slabs. Very well done.

Thanks for the tips whitepapagold. But $800 for petrified wood...
The wood is definitely the major factor of pulling off the theme of the tank.
Keep us updated with photos, love to see its progression.

One of my all time favorite tanks. I wonder how this would look like if you tried it out as a terranium

That tank looks more ancient every time I see an updated picture. Good job.

My roommate says I'll die by giant turtle.

I am very impressed with this tank, especially the size- some of those petrified wood pieces must be huge! I really like the simplicity of the scape and how you got a ton of use out of very few plants.

I even have duckweed in my water bong!

This is so awesome. It's such a fresh breath of air from all the other tanks in here. Looks like it came right out of a movie set.
