I'm posting this in the planted tank section because even though it's mostly bare bottom right now, I plan on filling it in with Anubias and more small rocks as I find them.

This is a shot of the whole tank. (Duh righ)

These rocks are siliconed together so that they won't fall. I will add more of these pillars as I find suitable rocks.

Some of the river rocks I collected over the summer and I found these cool beads at a bead shop. I'm going to silicone them to rocks so that I have more control over their placement.

And a quick video. I'm having trouble uploading any thing over 30 seconds so it's super short.

Thanks for looking. Hope you enjoy. :)

Thanks all. @rhorizon74 I got them at petco. They are the broad leaf anubias I think. They've grown really well. Got the big one a year ago. :)

No petco in my state... petsmart doesnt carry them. The only thing i can find is anacharis, hornswort (hate that one, since the leaves really create a mess), amazon sword (the ones in jacks are too big for my 29 gallon).

Petsmart has some in kind of a tube, but a lot of the leaves are damaged, so i keep away from those.

:cry

You can get them online too. They aren't very exspensive.

Where do you buy them?

They have some on here. http://www.aquariumplants.com/Anubias_barteri_v_Round_Leaf_p/an047.htm It says in the description that they need rich substrate and co2. Balderdash I say. I did have the big one in a tank with some DIY co2 but I don't think they need it.

your set up is beautiful! how do you keep your bare bottom so clean and algae-free xD

I actually just cleaned it on tuesday. It was super easy though, just wiped it down with one of those algae scrubbers. Took all of five minutes. :)

Thats a really cool tank. How did you get the rocks to stand up? :)

I have an uncanny ability to stack stones. Then I siliconed them together. Wait till this summer and I'll post pictures of the stones I stack in the creek behind my house. I can get six foot pillars of rock going. You're really gonna like those!

Mr.B, I think you've started something. Don't be mad if you should see stacked rocks in others tanks here. I love the looks of it.

Your fish and tank is beautiful.

I would love to see that.

No way, I say stack stones till your little hearts are content! :)

When I lived in Iceland people would leave stacks of stones by the side of the road. I love that look! I also have some tube plans...and they have done great.

There's a lot of wild people who live around here who do that too. You'll be out in the woods or driving around on old roads and find tons of stacked stones. I found a set once that some one had used heavy equipment to make. It was the size of a semi truck.
