    New trend?

    I’m new to the hobby but recently came across a couple scapes with “waterfalls” shown below. Is this a new trend? What are your thoughts? I find it pretty cool.

    It's a trend in taiwan/hk/singapore that hasn't quite taken off in the US.

    looks cool, but I am sure it takes quite some work to make it look super nice like those ones.

    Not so much a trend here in the states. You can search YouTube for How To Videos on this. I've watched a few DIY videos myself.

    Figure a way to use a small fountain type pump (like the one used in the finnex hang on breeder) vs air pump.

    C'mon man, won't work long term. Sand in an impeller is a no no. That's why they're always air driven.

    I meant to further elaborate. . Using the airlift style setup. Make a hole in the lift tube. Using said small pump connect with soft tubing at an angle to force water up the tube keeping the "power head" clear of the sand. Sealing the soft tube in the hole with silicone
