DIY 'rock' wall

3rd Feb 2011

I'm setting up another tank and wanted a way to separate the plant substrate from the sand i want to use at the front (for my cories) So i decided to build a wall, quite pleased how it turned out actually

All that was used was foam, silicon and black quartz sand.

Full wall

I think you are very talanted as regards to setting up your aquariums, what you do is very effective and you have a great imagination to create such a thing.
Very nice and very impressive.
