This weekend I plan on getting my rock structure built, and maybe get the old tank moved to a temporary location so I can get the Solana in place!

Unibroue! It's so funny to see that - I just poured myself a glass of La Fin Du Monde and sat down to read the forum!

I didn't know Unibroue was available outside of Canada. Good to know!

 

What kind of rock is that? I've never seen it before. Looks nice :)

Sure, no rush though. $ has been a little tight. Been pondering taking down my 15g frag tank selling the T5 and setting up a 3g pico on my computer desk. So many cool aquarium options..what to do, what to do.

 

So are you going to build a permenate structure or just stack your aquascape? Any plans that you are going to do different this time around?

Well, lets just say I ordered a couple of things from here... That's all I'm sayin' for now... :ninja:

Base rock attached to cell cast acrylic sheet, 1/4" x 12" x 12", with 2, 3/8" cell cast acrylic rods...

Main structure done...

Left side...

Right side...

Not sure if I'm going to use this rock in the bottom right...

Or something like this...

Overall, it's a pretty damn solid structure...

Still not as "sweet" as I had hoped... I had mentioned "Bonsai" in one of my other posts... NOT EVEN CLOSE!!! Oh well.

 

Let me know your thoughts!!!

I know what you mean. I tried for a more crescent moon shape. It came close but more like a canyon into a rock face. Ah well your rock structure still looks sweet. So get it in the tank already and get that bad mamma-jamma running.

Thanks bro...

 

I might move the NC out of the way tomorrow, and get the Solana in place at least! -_-

 

It's a start! :lol:

Looks like some nice rock John sent you David!

 

I too understand what yur sayin about the scape. It's tough to build what you have in mind with rock shapes you did not pick out yourself, isn't it?

 

In my case, usually rock scapes tend to grow on me rather than look awesome from the start. :P

I wasn't crazy about my rock wall, but now it looks OK to me I guess. LOL

 

 

And hey, you can always take hammer and chisel to shape a few yourself to get that look you want. ;)

Hai there! Yessir, rock from John is kick ass!!! Tough to beat that price for it also!

 

I usually screw around with my scape in the tank... But this one is kind of... FIXED!!! omgomgomg

 

I think it is going to turn out looking sweet though... It is already growing on me. I am excited to have tons of open space on the sand, and I finally have a over hang like I wanted.
