|Unkillable Cat||Really fighting the urge to do this now. Have already found a £20 2.5 gallon topless, but knowing my other half would kill me for getting another tank is stopping me for now.|

It's not somthing I'm planning for a couple of months, but as my son has discovered scooby doo I have been pondering a creepy nano project myself. I had thought out the substrate, using purple and orange sand to make a spiral floor, and "dead" driftwood trees, but that's as far as I've got.
I've also got a "haunted house" I can use. It's getting the right plants that's put the project on hold, as I'm not sure which would work out best just yet. Well that and actually getting a tank lol

Well I doubt the OP will go through with the Zombie Aquarium. However it's almost October and I think that someone should set one up! I am at my max for tanks but if you are thinking about setting up a new tank, consider the ideas in this post!
loucas6290, That lil figure is cool! Please post more pictures of your terrariums!

Hey guys! This is an awesome idea. I had a similar idea for terrariums of mine!
I apologize for crappy cell phone pics but this is all i had at work. i handpainted a couple guys my self and theyve got all the little details (i know you cant see them from here). They are about 2" tall. if you guys are interested in more pics, just pm me.

I saw this and couldn't think of this picture. Not try to offend the blondes here, but actually show them that one day, they might rule the world.
Blondes will rule the world after zombie Apocalypse.
Seriously though, can't wait for this tank to turn out.

I have a dual hood setup from last time. One will be a blacklight, the other will be blue spectrum.
The tank will also get plenty of normal light from the room, and indirect from windows nearby. I also do not plan to plant, at least not yet.

Wow, I am really glad i found this forum/thread!
I have been planning my own graveyard/zombie 28gal tank for about a week now.
Hopefully we can help each other
I will be using a 28gal bowfront tank that I have just pulled out of storage and cleaned up. I have some dark-blue/light green (petco brand i think) gravel that I tested with a black light. The green glows radioactive neon green when close to the light. With the distance it will be sitting at from under the hood, it will be a perfect bio-hazard green.
I may also be mixing in one or two bags of solid dark blue to mitigate the green affect in specific areas.
I want the general scene to be that of an old cemetery. Then, off to the side...
I have always loved the sand fountains, and i figure if i can find neon green fine sand (shouldnt be too hard) it will produce a really cool toxic ooze effect coming out of the barrels.
Add some green glo-fish and several of the other recommendations already mentioned in this thread and it should be awesome.
For gravestones, search for miniature gaming terrain.
I already have some gravestones from Miniatures Gaming (mordheim) that I will probably be sealing and using.
