Well Nick Lutyk I can't make up my mind:) Do I go with lots of small fish or a few large fish or several mid size fish:) I am thinking of maybe African Cichlids as my pH is rather high about 9 out of the tap. Something like maybe Cyphotilapia Frontasa. At one time I had an oscar and a red belly pacu they worked out OK and looked interesting and of course the oscar was fun but moved liked to dig and move stuff to much. I have also thought of maybe getting a school of red hook silver dallars. Also of course the huge school of Neon Tetras is always cool. Any way if any one has suggestions on what fish to get please let me know.

well I allways thought an Cambolian biotope aquarium would be cool, your planning to have the Angkor backdrop so why not have the fish from area. like clown knifefishes, zigzag eels, gourami's etc. pretty much the fish that come from asia.

OK finaly got a chance to post a few pics:) I still have a lot of work to do but you can start to see the primary shape. I will also be attaching layers to the front of this of fallen "rocks" to give it even more of a 3d shape. Also you can see where the outline of the face is, this part will have another layer attached to it so that it stands out more from the background like on the sketch.


Thought I would include this image again for reference.
