The wood looks a little too symmetrical but the rock work looks fantastic!

Wow is that really foam?

Now that you said that it does look like it a little but until you said that I thought it was real rock..

Very impressive!

Awesome "rocks". I like seeing good looking low light tanks.

Only criticism- some specs would be nice.

That's fantastic. Can you tell us exactly what substances and chemicals you had used in creating this?

Thank you

The only things used in making the wall was, foam, silicone & black quartz sand

Any problems with the wall floating? Or did you silicone it down?

The rock wall is impressive. Using the moss to break it up was a really good idea. looking forward to seeing the fish.

Wall is siliconed to the base of the tank. I am going to do some more and play with adding weights to keep them down. Also siliconing them to slate or such, that will sit under the gravel & hold it down....
