I have seen lego themed tanks, which are different . You have to figure out how to get the legos to sink, which isn't to difficult.

You just want to make sure that anything you put in the tank will be ok long term, submerged.

well, since you asked... here are a few of the setups I have ran through the last few years. None of them are close to approaching the difficulty of the setups I posted above. I would say all of these are achievable to the average hobbyist with some effort and knowledge.

Outstanding work. I've always been in awe of what aquascaping can produce but I've simply never had the green thumb enough to try it

Those are amazing.. Mine are nowhere near as great as yours, but I am working with a 14 year old budget, and these are my first tanks. So, I am pretty happy with them I had to use the laptop cam, so please don't mind the horrible picture quality. My camera cord decided to vanish, so, yeah..

Here are my tanks..


This is my 5.5G. It was going to be a betta tank, but my platy decided to be a female, so I am preparing it for babies.


This is my 25G community. Looks better in person, but again, using the laptop camera!

fort... I loooove the tank in the second picture.. What kind of plants and equipment did you use for that?

That tank in the third pic is a 29 gallon with co2 injection and 4 t5ho bulbs. Too many plant species to name . That was my collectoritis phase.

I will have to try something like your tank in the second picture but on a smaller scale. I love it!

fort, do you have any ideas that would make my 25 look a little better? The picture is horrid, sorry about that.

I just showed my son the Lego one its pretty cool! He is Lego obsessed at the moment. But Lego is expensive I don't think I'm willing to buy a set to just go in his tank. But it is wicked.
