Built to life-size proportions, this 8,554 piece model is designed to fool the casual observer into thinking it is an actual real-life tropical freshwater aquarium. All the fish are replicas of popular, well-known breeds and the plants are typical aquatic flora. Even the under-hood lighting, pump and filter system are accurate to real aquariums, complete with moving "bubbles" at the top of the tank! Completed in October 2014, the model took ten weeks to build. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________ © 2014 Janet VanD LEGO® and the brick-and-knob configuration are trademarks of the LEGO® Group which did not sponsor or endorse this model.
