Looking for a specific Build Thread. HELP

I believe I saw a build thread sometime ago here on PT for a vivarium, where the guy had a large water fall and water area that came back under elevated land area? Anyone know the thread I'm talking about?

That's the one that came to mind when I heard your description . . .

Nope. the guy used pvc couplings, vertical, to hold the false floor up which allowed the water area to go back under the land massing. I can recall how he sealed off the back area. I'm thinking spray foam and then glued sand to the foam?

You should try doing an advance search and see if that helps. Have you tried doing searches with several specific factors at once, like "waterfall" "spray foam" "PVC" together?

I don't think I've seen the one you're talking about, so I can't be of more help.

Nope, that's not the one. The one I'm looking for has a center waterfall and the whole front is the aquarium with the land at the sides built over the water. Been scouring the net for it, but still have not located it yet

There is one that I have been looking for that had an extremely nice hardscape built up with foam. I have been looking around for that one and haven't found it again. The guy was obviously an expert. I think I remember him mentioning that he worked in a museum building displays.
