Love it! Love it!

I have been looking for a beach them for a few years. Now I see how I can achieve it. Wish I had seen this before I did my mini break down. When I move I shall do it though. I will use oil -dry though for the top, though.

Beautiful, I can see the resemblance to the actual beach... sand river stones...

I am really excited to see that everyone sees what i was trying to accomplish here Thank you all for taking a couple seconds to leave a comment!

John - I appreciate the words man. I always thought the layout was a little different and cool, but i am not sure if i think it is ADA material?

Alex - I think it is a combo. There is a good chance i added more substrate before I planted and after i took the hardscape shot....its really hard to remember. Either way, i know i trimmed the HC to give it more of a "hill."

I have been in a bit of a slump when it comes to planted tanks, but all of your encouragement is really helping me through that. I am very appreciative of that, and i thank you all!

I would enter it, but that is just my honest opinion. You never know unless you try right?

I think your work is a lot better then you realize some days.

Usually the space an aquarium sits in really isnt that important, but i think this particular tank sits in a cool enough space to show a picture.

Here is my kitchen!!

Woow Jason!! That picture looks right a home in one of those high-end design magazines! May I ask about the arm that you are using to hang the pendant. Is it DIY or did you purchase it somewhere.

Is this is a working kitchen? Its so clean!
