i was going threw a lot of ideas.
first off i wanted to find a old wooden ship in the model store and cut it in half to use as an out side frame.
could not find one big enough i liked.

second idea was a two tier waterfall tank after many trial and errors . i came to the fact that it wasnt big enough. for it to work as i want to i would have to make is more like 200 gallons.

my third idea was to have in suspended from the ceiling on cable you can control. up and down.
after trying it a few times i realize is wasnt a good idea. (tank full of water was left down forgot about it at night. let just say i walked into it at night)
so back to square one.

all i got so far to go one is a 15 gallon display.
two aquaclear 70 filters.
heater
tuzne powerhead.

all in shiny wrappers.

ill see what i come up with tomorrow as i wonder through home depot

Love the wooden ship idea but I can see how it would be difficult to do.
This part "(tank full of water was left down forgot about it at night. let just say i walked into it at night)" made me :lol:
