How did they get the branches to come out of the tank?

I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess they cut the branches and affixed them to the outside of the glass in their original spots.

hahahahahahahahahaha LIMB!

I would have to say the wood more then likely magnets. Kinda like they sell that little scuba guy where one half is in the aquarium and one half that is outside it.

It could be but that would look terrible unless you get the right bead of silicone. I would just drill holes in each end of the wood and put magnets. This way you can move around the wood easier or do what ever you want and leave nothing behind.

Yeah, I saw that tank. I bet they cut the branches and glued them to the inside and outside of the tank, then put the tank in a shallow tank.

I remember reading the comments. One person dismissed it as not being a 'real aquascape.' It's a shame that originality was frowned upon.

I also like their nanoreef. Very modern design. Fits rather well into the setting.

Hey weather its real or not that would be a lot of talk and stares if friends or family came over. I guess it all comes down to what looks good in what room your using it in.

Look at the lower-middle-left branch coming out of the top part -- the small branch, left of center, at the bottom of the top cube.

If you zoom in to where it connects to the glass it looks very much like a gap -- like they've glued the outside branches onto the glass.

Very, very, very cool.
