You won't regret it Tim!

Make sure to post a picture when you build it and let me know if you like it :thumbup:

As you know I have been recommending the Mock Tank for many years now. The Aquascapers who have used them always find them very helpful when planning an Aquascape.

Great that is a very sturdy Mock Tank.
Two tips to make it easier for you.
1 Work at table height (no bending down)
2 Add a piece of material you can see through across the front, (about 15cm wide) by doing that you can now add a substrate, sand/garden soils work perfectly.

Now you can start a Topic and get help with your hardscapes.

Hey,

One tip is to visit often LFS with lots of hardscape. Snipe the right pieces and collect over the time.. Good hardscape helps a lot ;)
I don't really like ordering stones online. I understand it can be a long drive to some "good stores". But worth it in the end.. Sometimes I drive like 2-3 hours to snipe some nice hardscape :D

@Nigel95 , hardscape sniping should happen constantly....even just going for a walk in the neighbourhood .
