No. That's not an option for us. These pieces are designed to be one of a kind. I have almost no intention to mass produce these. ( You can never say never, but right now that is the furthest thing from my mind. ) I believe that no two aquariums should look the same so I don't want any of my structures to look the same. Similar? At times. That is why I only make one of these bigger structures at a time. It gives me time to think about a new look for each piece. If I am just pounding them out they all start looking the same. Then it gets old, boring and redundant........you know like a job. Even though it is part of my job. It's still a fun part of it. I don't want to get burned out by it. One of the best parts of setting up a tank for me was the aquascaping. A lot of people either do not like it or have trouble aquascaping. So I like comming up with new looks. One thing leads to another. If you do the same thing over and over you'll never do anything new.
