That's crazy that ADG bought out NA, especially since it was never available in the US before them. Shame they will not sell the lily pipes separately. I have to say, they fit your stand so well. I don't think you could have done a better job here, they actually look more interesting than they do on an N/A stand, IMO.

Glad this is rebounding, love the tank.

Thanks! I love how they look too, and they have definitely made me want to ditch my acrylic light poles for brushed metal ones. I'll be making some in the near future. I think the acrylic ones look a little out of place now.

Did the Steel Flow pipes take awhile to ship for you too? I was also lucky enough to order just in time. I hope ADG reconsiders their position as the build quality is great.

The whole look is SWEET!

I ordered the pipes on November 19th and got them on January 8th, so yeah, it took a while. Worth it though.

I hope they reconsider as well, because I was pretty excited to see NA's stuff coming to the U.S., and was really disappointed to hear it would only be sold as complete sets. I just wouldn't buy that way, as most people in this hobby don't, so it's all as good as non-existant for most of us.

Thanks! I enjoy how the whole setup (and my chair) is surrounded by plants. There are many out of frame. The natural tank adds to the house plants and visa versa.

Looking really good. Very nice recovery from just a couple of months ago. That's what separates those that really love this hobby. We all have set-backs and disasters that make you want to give up but being able to start over again and make something good out of the unfortunate is what separates those that are just dabbling in the hobby and those that are fully invested.

So glad you have brought the tank back to life, and even better looking hardware to go along with. Can't wait for close up pictures in time to come.

Really inspired by your tank AnotherHobby! I went through your journal and appreciated the detail and tank eye candy. I got tired of my scape and wanted to really try incorporating driftwood branches. Yours came at the top of the list for inspiration. I hope you don't mind, but I wanted to try to emulate what you have and see what I can do.

Still bad-ass as hell I see. Those pipes are so awesome.

I don't mind at all. I got inspiration from many other tanks as well, added in some ideas of my own, and in the end made it mine. The overall concept of a branch laying on it's side with plants around it has been done many times, so it's not like I invented it.

Thanks! I love the pipes. I'm so glad I got them.

Thanks! The stand was fun to make, and I really like it. My only gripe is that due to the 2x4 and 4x4 construction and the smallish tank size, the space under it for a pump, heater, CO2 tank and regulator, cerges reactor, plumbing, and electrical wiring is incredibly limited.
