I agree! It's different than the normal natural style backgrounds...gets the creative juices flowing on ideas. What size tank is that in?

Thank you! I originally was going for a natural style but I did it this way to create more territories and take up the least water space. Its in a 55 gallon. I made a cave to go on the left side to balance the tank out, but I've realized it would fit in the middle and create a break in the tank which I would like like as well. The cave also has a hole on the back side that the fish would be able to swim through if it was in the middle. Please tell me what you think.

WOW! I'm impressed! I like the cave on the side where you had it before, I think it distracts from the columns . . . but thats just me :)
Overall, very nice!

Thanks, I ended up putting it on the left side. Drylock is good as is, it itself is a sealer.

The tank has been up and running for over a year now. It's stocked with 1 livingston, 6 yellow labs, 8 ob zebras, 2 auratus, and 1exasperatus.
