Remember James Cameron’s film Avatar that wowed critics with its impressive CGI visual effects? DIY aquarists are borrowing from the intriguing landscape of the film and creating floating “Avatar” islands that defy gravity! Check out this great tutorial by Aquapros who uses Featherock pumice to achieve the effect. Pumice is an ideal material to use, since it is naturally buoyant and can be altered easily with basic metal hand tools. Aquapros chose pumice for these reasons!
