lost pictures posted because I organizes my photobucket! so here is the tank as of today.
I love the geophayguses! they swim together and shadow each other. sift through the sands and their scales simply sparkle!

What a beautiful job on your tank! As a nice bonus it looks like you'll be finding homes for even more Java Fern soon. I think you did an excellent job of turning a difficult(some might even say undesirable) shape into an asset. By working with instead of struggling against the tank's shape you have a tank to be proud of that is both beautiful and unique.

The tank looks terrific!

Turquoise & - millennium? - rainbows look great together, and the cichlids will offer grace and behavioral interest. (And the subtle accent of the "natural" mermaid is charming!)

Wonderful display.

bad news!!!!! this tank started a horrid leak, a small drip for a day then it stopped....then two days later I awoke to what looked like a solid rain storm off the bottom ledge!
We debated our options. resealing a very old scratched deep hard to reach the bottom tank did not seem a worth while choice. Craig's list locally had nothing to offer. So a shallower tank with the same foot print to fit the stand has been ordered.
the fish and plants are in a large tote with the filter running on it awaiting their new home......the large hunk of DW is already in it's new spot out by my pond.

yes, I made the mermaid. I play around with sculpting a little. I considered selling on Etsy but haven't gotten it together as of yet.
this pair, which are made to hang on the wall, are my most recent but one of the two didn't make it through the firing
