I was inspired by RVQuilter's landscapes and decided to try a waterscape to go on the back of one of my aquariums rather than the plastic sheet you can buy. For totally winging it I think it came out pretty good. Forgot to "measure twice cut once" though so it's about 4 inches too long but easily fixed.

This is really a neat idea! And it gives the fish something neat to look at. Good job. :-)

I think you did a great job! Are the fish swimming happier? I know they notice such things. I saw NEMO! :-)

What a clever idea you have there, and beautiful workmenship. Great job. Must share your idea with one of my fellow quilters from the Senior Center.

Nice.

Now is that on the inside or the outside of the aquarium?

Nice Ryukins. Is that a bushy nose plecostimus? If not... it's gonna get real big. *L*
