Looks great! Love the scape. Very unique!

Can you share your T5 bulb combo and LED settings?

Also, what is the filtration system on this tank? Running on Zeovit?

Thanks.

Very nice!.

How did you scape it?. Is there a glass shelf, or a false weir cover?.
Hope there's not too much strain on the back glass?...

Any photos of just the rock work?.

Thanks
Mo

This tank looks awesome. From the looks of the other thread in guessing he has something built on to the overflow to support the rocks. It's a great idea, I'd guess you would need to build a way sturdier overflow and a ledge of some sort.

The rocks are built to the glass.

I was at this shop today and I told them that you guys are still waiting for how to build the floating rocks. The owner is very busy lately , he is building many tanks right now for customers.

The glass must be quite thick, then. What kind of aquarium glass can carry such a weight, before breaking into pieces due to pressure at an odd angle, tempered?

It's attach to back glass and side glass and the tank has very thick glass.

Do you know what type of rock used? Looks like tongo or fiji branch? Do you have any idea how heavy the rock structure may be? Thanks for the info, btw.

As I remember they are using rocks from Fiji I think, but not 100% sure

Well, thanks anyway, we now at least know that the aquarium needs to be build for purpose. Depth is also interesting, 90cm, I think its the only way to create the empty space between rock and sand otherwise corals will stay too close to ground. Should be planned in long time, I guess.

So I am guessing this shelf is just glued to the Right side of the tank and to the overflow as well? Can you ask him what kind of glue he used?
