Zen Garden in Bottomless Shrimp Tank.

Zen Garden in progress.

The lego platform:










Due to observations and remarks from another fish forum, I do agree Zen #2 should have white sand or something similar and needs a rake .

The Lego container would look a ton better with moss flowing over it, make it look a bit aged that way.

Yes! I've never seen Legos used in an aquarium before. Cool concept you got going

Got Plants?-6 CO2 + 12 H2O → C6H12O6 + 6 O2 + 6 H2O

You'd almost have to assemble it in the tank the amount of air bubbles that would get trapped. Did you have much trouble keeping it down?

Cheers,

I used to try and make custom submarines with lego lol. Somehow they kept filling up Wouldn't it be awesome if you try to replicate one of those ancient Indian temples that they have in the rainforrest there.

Kind of like the one in Tomb Raider ( the first movie ).
Grow some HC on it and let it hang over the walls with mosses and such.
Just a suggestion but it would look awesome if you did.

[/SIGPIC]Want to go nano , but donīt know where to start

I placed the base in the spot I wanted, grabbed a cup and kept adding substrate until it was full and it was heavy enough to keep it down without any problems.

I wouldn't be able to keep alive HC for the life of me .

I would like to do something with the tank, just got to buy some more lego .
