Thank you fishwhisperer. I still have a ways to go, so hopefully it will all work out.

Not much to update on except that I stripped off the black foam. I may use some where the roots meet the water's surface for added bulk where floatation isn't an issue. I have several diameters of rope to help the look of the roots to add bulk and realism. I started adding the largest diameter. No pics yet, but I think that I like the look of it.

I also need to find a way to secure it to the rock work. Initially, I was looking to attach it to the intake tube, but I'm thinking more and more about a peg/hole attachment somehow. I want it to be removable, yet secure.

Hey Chas, just checking in. I think alot of us have had to put our projects down from time to time. We just get busy with other work/life stuff. How's it going?
