I think I can officially say the tank is complete (other than stock).

I like the grey/green contrast.

I think it looks incredible. The rock looks so real. I love the lighting too, I love everything about it. I can't wait to see it with fish in there, please keep the thread updated. What's the stock plan??

Thank you

Its a Tanganyikan community tank. So far it houses 7 gold compressiceps, 5 male leptosoma (jumbo (black bee)), a bristlenose and a handful of mystery snails. The original plan was frontosa. I had/have 10 young kigoma lined up but I had changed my mind about those until yesterday. My best mate purchased breeding colony of 9 F1 Moba and they are absolutely STUNNING. So I'm definitely getting frontosa at some stage. I think I might be 'baby-sitting' a colony of ventralis in the near future also. So the stock plan is changing constantly but I will keep the thread updated as I add/remove fish.

Nice job! This is something one would see in public, well funded aquariums. The steps and pics were very descriptive. Thanks for providing those. I think others will be inspired to create beautiful and interesting backgrounds as a result of this thread.

Thank you I'm lucky. My husband has reached the point of almost not caring lol. We looked at marine for this tank but I was unwilling to take it all on myself and he wouldn't research :/

great Job I am abt to start one for my 75g tank but trying to find ways around the leaching one thing I was looking into was the Krylon Fusion texture paint it supposedly is aquarium safe and there is another krylon product called "Make It Stone" I am waiting to hear if anyone has tried that. For attaching it I am going to use Rare Earth Magnets instead of Silicone that way I dont have the mess to clean up if I ever change it or need to remove for some reason
