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


'rock'

Wow, that looks amazing! Did you put grout on it, or anything? And what kind of silicon did you use?


I just finished a DIY rock for my lizard, so I'm always looking for new ideas LOL. :D

Soooooo its done, well pretty much, needs a few more plants, but this is all i have at the moment.

A pic of wood and some plants being placed


Now filled, lights running. Still gotta fix up the canister, then plug it all in


I must say i'm rather proud of how it turned out

Cool, it's nice to see it with the plants grown in :). I love neon tetras in planted aquariums, they stand out nicely and become bolder because of the cover.
