I would, but no one would want to replicate my tanks! It's just gravel and plastic plants.

But...I did trim the grapevine today, and got some nice pieces for my hex tank. It's going to take a long time for them to be ready because they're still green inside.

I have just set up my reef aquarium which is just going through the bloom process, however below are a few pictures for you.
The live rock is from Fiji aswell as the coral sand.

It is a 185ltr tank with a 25ltr sump tank.
In it are 2 power flow heads that work independently on an adjustable timer, so one will operate for say 15 min then the other one for 15 min.
Live rock and coral sand from Fiji.
I will be introducing corals next week and then finally some fish.
Cheers. 🐠🐟🐠🐟🐙

I have Cichlid sand as a base and natural small gravel on top. I have 14 Anubias and 3 java fern. 4 pieces of real driftwood. I Krazy clued (gel) some of the plants to the DW yes it's safe. Get the one that dries clear. I used API root tabs as well. The stones are Cichlid stones the rest are real rocks and pieces of slate. I made a huge tunnel running from one end of the tank to the back to the other side. How did I think of it? Well... I just drew some options, went online googled and found something that I liked.

Good luck and Happy New Year.

35 gallon and a 110 gallon. In the 35 I uses geosystem gravel. A couple pots. And rock slate we have lying around. For the 110 I don't know what type of gravel was used but the same rock as the 35 to create a ledge look. All plants are fake
