Hahaha obelix, in the big rock I also carved it in the back for more hidding places, I had some shells around so perfect for more hidding places they seem to like it

I wish we had loads of lava rock here so readily available, its very expensive to buy for your tank here in the UK, especially if you want the black rocks.

The new "scape" I never have been too good doing scapes I usually love jungle look tanks with lot of plants, this scape its just for hidding places, the central bottom rock form a little cave and the hole connects to the top rocks who are also hollow, the shrimps love it, I think I will never going to see them but now they are more secure and go out swiming more

Its growing very slowly but growing, the best grower its a marine algae, the big clump in the right side of the rocks that looks like marimo its in fact a marine specie Cladophoropsis menbranacea
