    I plan on doing this to my 75 gallon goldfish tank, as soon as I get settled in my new apartment.
    I LOVE underwater waterfalls, and it's always been my dream to have one. But one thing that I plan on changing is that I don't want a waterfall on both sides...no, there will be a waterfall on one side of mine and the other side will have my volcano bubbler.
    I plan on building rocks up around it and using red sand on that side to simulate magma flow.
    I just can't wait to get started! I know it'll take some time, but it'll be worth it in the end, I'm sure.

    It's sand, actually. Bubbles push it up into a pipe behind the rocks and it flows down like water, then collects in a basin and is sent back up again!

    Me too! I think my decor will be a little less space consuming and it will have a little more variety in plants, but I do love that tank!

    Yep, it's going to take me a long time. And I'm pretty sure my wallet will be crying, heh.

    So the volcano bubbler will have a waterfall next to it simulating magma? Or will it be it's own formation away from it?

    I have seen tanks with that "waterfall" effect. It is cheaper and simpler then you think. It is nicer with a bigger tank.

    Very cool looking, but would eat up too much space in a 75g IMO.
