    Just some more picture of the "ruins" i´ve made, not really ruins :p but not sure what to call them then xP

    Shows my frontosa swimming through the tunnels, altho couldn't get a decent shot :p


    And video, I didn't put the sand on top of it, those are the cichlids that are digging in the sand, inside is a bit dirty at the moment, altho with time the frontosa throws the sand out of the structure, so it wont fill up as long as it has a fish inside.

    Made it out of Balsa wood, should decay over time, the suspended tunnels and the area on the right should fall apart faster, until theres just some walls left, I'm interested in making some ruins that change over time, tho yeah with time i´ll get to make something original, I give it about 4 - 5 months based on past experiments :p
