July '01 - Rockscapes!

Whether it's because you are trying to reproduce a specific natural environment, keeping avid plant-eaters, don't have proper lighting, or simply out of personal preference, an aquarium's decoration will sometimes be based almost exclusively on rocks. In this case, creating a pleasant composition can be quite a challenge, since the only 'parameters' you have available are the color, shape and amount of rocks used, plus your creativity to arrange them in an interesting way. So here's a collection of nice rocky setups to give you some ideas for your present or future tank...enjoy!
