Hallelujah Mountains

How do you make the "Hallelujah Mountains" floating rock/plant effect? I saw a pic in one of the forums (can't figure out how to post it) and it looked WAAAY cool. I sent the owner/creator a PM but never heard back. Please advise! Thx a milli!

Some people glue foam core painted with some sort of rocky plaster onto the back of the tank, giving the illusion of floating from the front. Some people use foam core painted with something and tie it to a piece of very thin fishing line or the like, illusion of floating from all angles if you don't notice the fishing line.

You could always use a flexible nylon mesh to tie up the mountains and put moss in them to give the illusion of vines holding them.

Creative idea there. Moss chains.
