Photo Caption: All Glass 100 gallon (72"x18"x18", very hard to photograph it) with dual flourescent sun lamps. I use 2 Whisper 60 filters, and a sponge filter on a 290 power head and a small airstone. Substrate is garden gravel. A few small driftwood pieces. Many of the rocks are 300-400 year old indian tools and axe heads. Simulated root system. I used antique marble dresser and vanity tops that were broken for the background on the left end, provides many caves and crevices. I have large slabs of naturally weathered rounded slate with marble inclusions as a base, these are supported by 2 layers of bubble wrap beneath.
