Wall of Tanks

Today after doing some thinking I decided to redo some of my shrimp tanks, and add a live back ground behind them.

I went to home depot and brought some chicken wire which i attached to a clothing line that was already installed behind the tanks perfect amount of spacing.

I then went and found a branch to place in the center of the set up hoping to grow some vines up the tree which have already been planted in the bucket i'm using to hold the branch in place.

I'm going to be adding more light and hoping to get some other plants to grow out the tops of the aquariums all along the top row and attach to the chicken wire

I'm also considering adding some spay form pockets to add ferns or other sorts of plants to the background.

Looks awesome, similar to what I have in my 10 gallon hospital tank just on a much larger and grand scale, my only suggestion is to make sure you know which plants you choose to plant next to your wall, certain plants like Ivy can extend their roots through brick and mortar and can cause damage to your house.
