Actually i did away with the spray bar. I use just a 1.25" PVC pipe outlet now, place in the front left ornery pointing to the right. Flowing across the front of the tank and a powerhead in the back right corner pointing to the left side, following across the back of the tank. The powerhead comes on with the co2 and lights and shuts off with them as well each day.

I will pm you some pics of the old spray bar though.

You have been studying nature. That is the key. The way that plant seedlings will flow in the stream (or seeds through the air in the wind) and land in the cracks and crevices. How wood roots or branches tends to 'wrap' around other trees or rocks.

Very nice job.

What kind of rocks are those? Did you go out and collect them or purchase them? Beautiful tank by the way!

What an incredible tank. I'm so impressed and want to watch it on a video feed once you stock it. It looks natural and effortless; yet I know that is difficult to achieve in a glass box. Well done.
