If the battle of Lake Tanganyika happened 30 years later...  The battle of Lake Tanganyika was a small naval battle during World War One that was fought between the German forces at the time in control of the lake and the English forces looking to gain control.  The English ended up commandeering one ship and sinking another while capturing the first German Naval Ensign to be taken prisoner in the war.  England gained control of the lake but in the end the battle proved to be inconsequential to the overall war. I like to think I am paying tribute with this scape.

50 low boy with pool filter sand and crushed coral for a substrate.  Sandstone type rock form a ridge across the middle to give the appearance of a reef crashed ship. The rock and ship actually form visual barriers for the Multis to limit aggression between the males.  The crashed ship and airplane beckon closer to WWII.  This was a close second in my consideration for a breeding setup submittal.  I started with 8 Multis and there are over 75 in the tank now.  I expect that number to grow significantly once they settle in a bit as this was set up just a few weeks ago.

My best scape is my 40 Gallon Breeder! The reason for this being my best scape is that it is the initial reason for me joining this forum and my favorite fish, Sterbai Corydoras love it in there! The Sterbai Corydoras are also the reason for the breeder box in the aquarium, it does not exactly make the scape look better but baby corydoras do look pretty cute I must say haha
