Comments:Your website is one of the best I have ever seen, especially the section "Tank of the Month", where I am finding a lot of inspiration. It was one of the reasons why I decided to send you some photos of my tank. This aquarium was setup in 2000 and it is my first one. The background is made of green split slate, stuck on a plastic board (polycarbonate), which is stuck on the back wall of the tank. The basis of the decoration are two imitation stones, stuck on the bottom. They are made of polystyrene, painted with epoxy resin and covered with sand.

If you'd like to submit an aquarium for Tank of the Month, just contact me.
