I'd like to show you all my invention, which I have recently Patented. It is the "Microcosm Terrestrial and Aquatic Landscape Habitat" AKA "The Ponder." It is a (usually small) desk top or coffee tabole sized Pond surrounded by three Miniature Mountains which are naturalistically sloping; the fourth side is composed of a Pane of Glass!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! An Upper Pool is loc ated on the rear or side Miniature Mountain. This flows into an optional water course and this thence into an intricate artificial rock waterfalls which IS acoustically pleasing. I build pots into the Miniature Mountains for bonsai trees and other terrestrial plants. So, you can look at your fish as with a Pond, surrounded by compelling geological forms and plants, AND go down below the water level and view your specimens in their underwater habitats through the Pane of Glass. What beauty!!! Really, an excellent contemplation piece to ponder in the home or office. he Ponder may bring peace, connection with Nature, educational opportunities, scientific observation, fun! My files are to big for me to upload photos of my working models at this site, but I am able to upload an Illustration.

Nicholas, while we always strive to promote the hobby, we often come along little gems like this. It's quite an interesting endeavour and we'd like to hear more about this.

Some nice pictures along with how you plan to filter the water in the "water" section would be greatly appreciated. Looking forward to your response.
