VERY nice. The wood and rocks have transformed it massively and it all looks so natural. The plants compliment each other and are placed perfectly. This will look even better as it grows in which I'm really looking forward to.
Hats off to you for having the determination to follow through something from a dream and turn it into this. I imagine it will be a great focal point of the room it's in.
Are you planning anything for the submersed area fish wise???

It's cleared up well lol.
Goldfish is good!......maybe not ha ha.
I think some corydoras would look perfect in there amongst the sand and rocks.
Maybe a couple of really colourful guppies too?

oh guppies/endlers i got soooo many in my 15 gallon tank
might get some rainbow fish and dwarf cichlids, because there's many rocks/caves. corys would be brilliant idea!
i guess i'll go to the pet store and see what jewels they've got

Very nice OASIS. Are you sure that's what you dreamt about? LOL. I love those colors on the pots.

Btw, you built those 3 tanks so far????????? wowww, that's amazing. I am curious as for the cost and time, compared to the one already built. Hmmmmmmmm.......

Dwarf neon rainbowfish.

My favorite thus far. Males are especially pretty. Mature males flash a yellow strip on their head halfway down their back when they display to females. Very exciting stuff

6 glass pannels X 10$
1 silicone tube X 6$
Plants X 30$
Sand X5$
Stand X20$
Light Fixture X25$

Grand total : 146$
And it took 2 hours to glue both sides of the panels for maximum resistance.

Will do, love to see creative people at work lol, im not one at all. Building a tank is way beyond me, I tried years ago to build a nice tank for my turtles and I did get a nice flood in the sun room.
