Oh no, we can't have that! We need at least 70 pages from the next journal! I must say, the wood's looking awesome, I think it will be a fab scape. Have you started it yet? :lol:

well, i guess a plus side to ripping this tank down is that you could get your hands on those last few ember tetras. :lol:

I like where you're going with the stone arrangement and sand with gravel at the front. Like Dave Chow's 'scape.

It looks beautiful and has the beginnings of a real nature aquarium.

Is it Mopani wood? If so, its the only time I've seen it put to good use, never usually liked it.
