ianiwane the HOB filter pulls the water from within the cave. It is constantly circulating water through the cave. No more updates as this tank is down right now. I may set it up some time in the future with a different filter.

ianmoede I love this idea. Any updated photos? Also, what kept you from running a small pump in there cycling water in and out 24/7? I would think that its possible to create pretty stagnant conditions in there.

ianiwane Here is an update. I did a major trim, it was getting out of hand.

Like I said earlier I have a pump inside that when needed is turned on to kick up the detritus. It is then sucked up by the hang on back filter. So far I had a shrimp die in the cave. I sucked it up with a syphon.

Raimeiken so how are you going to clean the inside of that cave?

ianiwane Thanks everyone. That plant is Hygrophila sp Aragauai.

Wasserpest It is bu-ful! Hide the tech and you have a competition-worthy tank.

What is that plant in the front center, jumping over the edge into the sandy beach?

yoink Wow that is really coming along nicely. I really like the rocks too. Good job.

sandiegoryu lmao that tank looks bigger than my 10 gallon. very nice. For a second I thought those rocks were leaves! Looks so natural.

update taken today

ianiwane It the pictures the cave and the piece that seperates the sand and aquasoil is in two pieces. I joined it into one piece and created a barrier to seperated the AS and sand all the way to the opening of the cave.
