I have been wanting to try this since seeing Gary Wu's version:



But few details on construction of the islands were given. Any details you can provide would be greatly appreciated!

funny, I was thinking of doing a concept similar to this, and I click here to find someone else has done it too!

my inspiration comes from avatar too, those floating islands on pandora. I was planning on using ADA Unzan stone, drill holes in them and set like an anchor of fishing line and suspend them from a lighting fixture arm.

very sweet scaping

the water fall effect is not hard i did it by accident one time i used sand substrate and had styro background and cut a chanel in the back of it for air line and an air stone. the air bubles made and updraft and pushed sand out the top and it fell down the front of the background only to have it done time and time again. i really should give it another try lol

Cork and very thin fishing line could also be an option.
