    Default New RockScape

    Well if I had to redo the aquascaping I might as well try something new. Ive seem a few tanks done this way and thought this would be a good way to get some added floor space. So here it goes, the finish photos are not ready as they are drying...

    Default Finally

    OK got things done and installed yesterday. I wanted to wait for 24 hours for things to clear before adding pics. VERY, VERY, VERY happy with the way this turned out. Really gained some floor space and water flow. I think I need to get a bigger powerhead as there is little rock for the flow to bounce off of. If I change to a bigger tank (right....when I put the 45 rimless plans into action) I will definitly build a back wall and other scapes this way. I will post pics tonight.

    Did I mention how happy I was with this?

    Default As promised

    Here are a few pics of the new scape. Not the best pics, macro lense on the wish list, not shot in RAW, but you get the idea.

    Default Thank you

    I think I will put in a small arch coming one of the middle rocks, but I've changed their world enough for now. Where you at in the UP? My brother is in Skandia and daughter is in thew Sault.

    Default Sticky sand!

    I use 2 different sizes of crushed coral/sand. After sculpting the foam I used epoxy resin to adhere the coarse crushed coral. I let that cure for 24 hours and then painted on another coat of epoxy resin use fine sand, letting that dry for 24 hours. When I put the panels in the tank I use the resin and sand to fill the seam. Over all it was really easy to do and would have only taken 3 days if I didn't have to go to work. Those are the nems I got from you in front of the Bam Bams, I now have 4.
