Oh, I can assure you it's my own creation. I've done some conceptual work so I've had practice working with Styrofoam.

As for that background, I may have a couple pictures but I'll have to find them. Hindsight being 20/20, I should have photographed the entire process. I'll be starting another background in a couple months and this time, the process will be documented. :thumb:

also i used concrete on my backround so if i keep plecos will they strip the cement? i have a pretty strong layer of cement.. if so what other fish could i keep to help with algae

Thanks for the compliments. If I can't find the pictures, I have a couple of sketches. That's pretty much how I start any piece of work- sketches, moch-ups, then final product. I'll send ya a PM discussing the details. I don't want to hijack this thread. :thumb:
