2nd attempt 20gal long
#1
Hello everyone I am near completion of my second tank (20gal long) this tank was going to feature a small pond and a waterfall. Though it did not end up that way LOL funny how things change as you are creating. The tank ended up a river tank made from an old shop vac hose. The tank is not complete but here are some pictures in random order of some of the steps that I took to make this viv!

This was the original idea was to have this piece of wood serve as a little waterfall. Though the line was too small for my pump and I could not track down a reducer. So this was scrapped I just thought it might help someone out who is looking for ideas. I love this wood thought it had great texture!!

This is a shot with the screen added to the egg crate. I use window screening seems to work well for the application1

The shop vac hose. I added silicon to it and put some fiber on the edges and gravel at the bottom. Seems to look natural only time will tell.
