A non-traditional Coffee House prep counter themed aquarium where there is a coffee spill up front...used inert sand for the coffee and ceramic tile for the counter

(All items were tested and researched for any lead by the way - none used)

Talk about thinking out of the box or tank for that matter, how cool. I would have never thought to do something like that.

Hey all thanks for the kind words, wasn't sure how it would be received...

I know it's not traditional in the purists sense of aquarium aquascaping for natural habitat but I figured it would blend into the kitchen (also coffee house themed ) nicely...while giving me ways to still incorporate some hiding places and sand substrate for the fish..

Most of the stuff I got at Hobby Lobby or just looking around ebay...such as the pot, knocked a hole out in the front of it and framed it up with some plastic ring and aquarium silicone

The background was a toss up, but I went with something that made the coffee reference obvious...printed it out in 8.5x11 sheets, glued in to a posterboard and waterproofed it with contact paper - don't worry it's behind the tank
