hello, whats up with the bobber floating in there?:confused:
See text: he's using the bobber and fishing line to suspend a moss covered rock.

Purists across the nation are clutching their pearls (or C02 tanks as the case may be), but I think it's a fun little tank. It's good to have a space set up for experimentation. The tumbled bricks as a base for plants makes for a surprisingly good mix of hard/soft edges.

Oh yea, my tanks make purists cringe and run for cover, but they make me smile and the inhabitants are very happy.

I have a 29g and a 20L with a stand that holds both. One of these days, I'll set them up and do something less playful, but for now, my happy little [STRIKE]fish[/STRIKE] shrimp room is a great place to work.
