the 20 gallon long project--trying to push the limit
this tank was inspired by some wicked looking rock formations i saw on my way to yosemite (HWY120). wanted to try making some caves, dramatic rock formations and overhangs. had some rocks lying in a box that havent been used in a while, put somethings together with a bit of imagination, and this is what i came up with (posted on reddit earlier, but made a few slight modifications since then).
hope i can entertain and make this thread worth both of our time.
at least until Monday, the project is going to be on hold since i need to get a new stand to support the tank as my current wire shelf will not cut the mustard. sand and substrate already purchased and ready to go once when new shelving is installed.
really digging this hardscape so much. im tempted just to leave it as is--- would make a great tanganyikan cichlid tank if i decide to glue all the rocks together.

Reason: for you, scapegoat.... for you.
Unfortunately I've had a couple of experiences of having my work taken without permission. Sorry for being preemptive. I'll think about replacing the photo, though I don't know if I can edit my post anymore...
EDIT: nevermind, so special. confused this forum with another that didnt allow editing posts after a certain period of time.

glad to see you changed your mind about the watermarks.
You've got a lot of different sorts of rocks in there; but, to me, it seems to work well. It makes the 20g look larger than it is. do you have any more of that wood? I think it'd benefit from more...
what are your fish plans?
I wish I had more wood. Manzanita pieces like that are hard to come by, most are way too branchy and their demand has made their prices hike up too. Not too happy about that. :P As for fish-- I would like to locate either some pseudomugil or yellow congos. Gonna stay away from cichlids since they like to dig and terraform my scapes and could potentially injure themselves by dislodging rocks.

I have been in that same boat before so I completely understand where your coming from. I got a lot of the same feedback so I just found a way to make my watermark less obtrusive. '
