Better hold up picture of my dream
Stands tall at 18 inches

My project will house "fry" and adult fw fish

The bottom foam to the left is a support that I will use to house a mini sub Grey area reps 4 inches to the glass below
The bottom foam also reps the entrance to my pleco cave I am making it able to do his/her thing

The foam in the bottom middle will be a housing for air stone mat here I will make PVC volcanic vents although I don't know what to use for vents

It's either window mesh or idk Wha

The foams on the side left of the tank will house "fry" show a way of life to the "younglings" I get over my lil brother being one

The foam to the right will support oto cat housing and what ever other "fry" is left

The middle part the main attraction u will have to wait and see that

All I can say is that It will be a super high way for fish and condo short stay home

Have to wait and see
