Love the tank!

This may sound like a stupid question, but how to you get the wood to 'hang' in the tank like a tree trunk? I'd love to accomplish a similar effect.



It is a custom background.

Designsbynature I think is the company


I think he means the actual roots that are coming down into the water.

There would be a couple different ways to do it. You could secure the wood to something above the tank so that they only go down so far into the water, or you could find some wood that is tall enough that you can balance it on the bottom. Both require an open topped tank though, I think.

The roots are simply placed against the bacground and the bottom of the tank



Yes unclewillie the older this tank gets the more I like it Smile
Now it is even more brown because of the Catappa extract I add every now and then.

I see how the background works, and it looks way better than what I've tried in the past. I currently have two 'roots' hanging into my tank, but do not look exactly natural. Jsuereth, what I did was buy a package of suction cups. I used some thin metal wire to secure the wood to the cup, and then I place the cup onto the back of the tank. At first you could see the suction cup and wire, but not that it has moss you do not notice it. Incorporating it into a background like Dusko did looks waaayy better.

Your tank is very, very good!

The background is beautiful.

The side view of the tank is terrific in showing the background and overall layout. Any fishie would love living in there I would think.
