Totally just blew my mind. Amazing can not say enough. Love all the plants. I'm sure its your favorite room and I could get rid of cable with a tank like that.

Also moves things around, once more,hopefully for the last time. But I think all fits better now.

It's all coming together nicely now. I love the purple flowered plant.
Congrats on the flowering underwater plant, looks like an echinodorus plant, the flowers only last a day or two at most :-(

Nice work!

I love you have the balls and drive to just make your own tanks! Awesome!

I really like the implementation of out of water flowers and plants. Ive always wanted to do that with my tank but its not possible as I need a hood to protect it from my insane bengal cat!

This is very ambitious, unique, and gorgeous setup! Thanks so much for sharing. I look forward to seeing more of the aquarium aspect of it as well... perhaps even more unique things such as a rock waterfall or something? I wonder what else can be done with that hang on back filter if you use that - I know there's people who have emersed plants and stuff growing in the HOB filter.

Or have you considered having a canister filter (not sure where to put it) and build some kind of rock waterfall and have the filter output go there so it trickles the water down? Might look neat with the oasis theme


And finally, what's an oasis without a sand waterfall inside the tank? You have the sand already

haha that first part of your comment gave me a good laugh... yeah you're right ive got the most massive *invisible* balls lol

I also got cats, a persian and a sphynx (very adventurous and energetic beasty) and they really dont give a flying f about the tanks even thow the Oasis is quite low reach for them. I think your tanks would b fine. If now, well there's also the electrical fence !

Thanks for sweet comments!

This is fantastic! I love how you put the potted plants on clear risers. I've been wanting to do an open top tank for either my 55 or 40B, but without the traditional riparium planters/cups. You just gave me tons of ideas... ; ) Great looking tank, love all the pics of the build.

Yes, the "theoretical" balls of course!

And I actually started my tank open top and the cat would knock the lights in the water and yank/chew on the cables/tubing... He cost me about $100 before I put the hood on...

Hes not normal- hes close to a foundation Bengal so hes almost 1/2 wild cat! (Bengals are a combination of a wild asian leopard cat and a domestic tabby- known for being trouble and VERY active- but thats the fun!).

So Im stuck admiring your tanks! Very cool!
