Ghost Ship

As a concession to the hubby, who had graciously allowed me to take over the house with schools upon schools of fish, I agreed that we could have an aquarium tailored more to his tastes. Being a military buff, he insisted on an aquascape along those lines and eventually decided on a massive sunken battleship as the centerpiece for 'his' aquarium. The aged and desolate-looking piece evoked memories of a graveyard, and so the concept for Ghost Ship was born.

I knew from the start that I wanted to keep largely to a black-and-white fish palette fish to create an eerie, somewhat ephemeral effect. But since this would be for the hubby's viewing pleasure, I chose to focus on larger, more robust species perhaps reminiscent of  fish in the deep sea.

This tank is still under construction. Pictures coming soon!
