I'm not usually impressed by aquascapes, but that is #$%&*@& awesome.

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!

would love to try the floating island any tips or tricks to doing it

HOLY... that looks way better than those overused "pathway"
aquascapes....
How did you do that? It's... amazing.

Are the islands attached to the back glass?

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

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

cool read here too

wicca27 12-27-2012 09:51 PM

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.

Sake 12-27-2012 11:15 PM

I wanna hear how vhnam0084 did it, his looks great. I can't see any fishing line or anything.
