Question Lava rock for hardscapeing?

I have been looking for examples for tank with lava rock, for I am using it. I have found none. Note I am waiting the plants to grow more before moving them. Thus not finished.


Anyone hardscape their aquarium with lava rock?

All I found was an empty tank. What is the direct link for it planted? My computer is downloading pictures very very, slow now, thus too long to check out all of the links.

No, I have high speed internet and browsing with firefox. Once someone tells me how I am going to try Opera browser. I have Ubuntu os so I have to wait for someone at the forum to email advise. They are generally pretty fast at replying.

Nice tank.

I have red lava in my tank. Looking for a way to make it look more natural. HOB is gone now. Perhaps this is not possible. Most tanks are not like wild bio-types anyways.

Open synaptic and search for Opera, check it and click install. Once that is completed it will be located under "Internet" in your program bar.

That looks quite nice, actually. The examples I've seen hadn't previously impressed me.
