 Wow  just  saw  this  thread.  Awesome  rocks  Madan.  Your  tank  is  huge  but  i  think  with  these  rocks  maybe  you  can  have  either  a  low  plant  setup.  Like  Hair  grass(Eleocharis  parvula)  and  at  the  back  have  Eleocharis  vivipara.  But  it  should  be  a  up  and  down  slope   tank.  Then  some  brilliant  red  colour  plant  that  will  give  you  the  focal  point  with  the  rocks.  Why  not  try  a  bed  of  Utricularia  graminifolia.  Well  i  can  foresee  one  problem  though,  Gaythri  saying  that's  enough.  LOL.  
 
 Do  keep  in  touch  and  let  me  know  if  you  sail  close  to  this  Island.

These  are  Rocks,  with  some  kind  of  water  proof  cementing.  I  really  don't  know.  They  will  not  affect  pH,  they  are  submersible,  made  for  planted  tanks  and  so  on.  God  knows  !
 
 I  liked  their  looks  and  planned  the  tank  dimensions  accordingly,  man  these  are  big,  the  biggest  one  just  gave  me  a  stiff  back  and  ┬áback  pain  lifting  it.  They  come  in  as  a  set  of  five.
 
 Rahul  when  you  have  been  out  at  sea  for  as  long  as  I  have,  you  do  see  these  things.
 On  the  Island  of  St.  Lucia  in  the  Carribean,  are  two  rock  structures  that  rise  close  to  1000  meters  straight  out  of  the  ocean.  These  are  called  Gros  Piton  and  Petit  Piton.  
 The  Pitons  are  the  remnants  of  ancient  volcanos  that  have  been  eroded  over  the  millenniums  by  the  wind  and  sea  leaving  just  these  two  narrow,  tall  outcrops.  the  Volcanic  crater  too  is  gone  just  the  peaks  remain.  It's  a  6  hour  trek  up  and  down  each  Piton.
 
 Google  Petit  Piton  and  you'll  get  the  info.                

 
 Thanks!
 I  looked  at  the  pic's,  Looks  amazing.
 Did  you  treck  up  the  piton?

 rahul,  I  have  been  to  St  Lucia  a  number  of  times,  beautiful  place,  But  never  could  find  the  time  to  go  to  the  Pitons.
 
 I  have  seen  the  Pitons  from  the  sea  and  they  look  unique.

 Loved  the  rocks!
 Even  I  have  a  feeling  that  these  are  pieces  of  slate  cemented  together.
