Theme - A looser equivalent of the Biotope Aquarium, it gathers fishes and/or plants coming from different biotopes but from the same general region, e.g., "Amazon Theme" or "South-Asian Theme".
From reefs which attempt to recreate life specific to one region of the world like the Great Barrier Reef to the more prevalent and often spectacularly colored mixed reef that blend hard and soft coral from around the world.
Choose a theme - Focus your aquascaping and stocking plans around a specific region, species, or community grouping.

A strictly vertical growth habit and delicate appearance lend it to minimalistic Asian-d aquascapes especially well.
One of the variations on the theme is how the overflow or constant-level siphon in arranged. There are several ways to achieve the same end, some of which are less intrusive in appearance, but a bit heavier in the DIY aspect.
One interesting variation on this is the self-ballasted bulb. These bulbs (around 250 watts) require no ballast; they just screw into a standard medium base (i.e. incandescent) fixture and they simply work.
Use these Roman Posts as the beginning of an overall Roman architecture theme in your aquarium. Crafted of poly-resin in fade-resistant colors. The coordinate with additional Top Fin Roman ornaments (sold separately).
