Description: 29 gallon tank, whisper filter, UG filter. I really enjoy making decor with aquarium glue and rocks. From L to R: The Grotto, I took black river stones and made a small cave that is visible through the side of the tank in the corner. It also doubles as a planter where you can see the plants on top. The underground Lava tunnel. I took a PVC pipe and glued Lava rocks, with entrances in the side and out the top. Through the front glass you can see straight through to the back, so you can see your fishies chilling in the tunnel. Eventually I want to get some java moss to cover the lava. Next is the Granite Centerpiece, I wanted to cover the UG filter air pump. I glued thin peices of granite together and am attaching java fern all around it. I think it looks nice.
Advice: Pebbles, Plants, Patience= Pretty,Pleasurable, pets.

About Yourself: Got into the hobby about 6 months ago, with the intention of helping with stress relief. Oh what a relief and now I am hooked. I can watch my tank for hours. I have it set up next to my bed, so I come home from work, plop down on my bed, and stare until I fall asleep. I love watching my tank grow. If anyone has any advice or comments I appreciate any feedback.
