The driftwood came in the mail today! All I have to say is wow! It's soaking in a bin right now. Also I got the Co2 dialed perfect, at just under 2 bubbles per second the drop checker is the perfect green. With my 20lb Co2 talk that should last a few years before a refill ha

Man... that driftwood is PERFECT for that tank. The height, the cave at the bottom, and the way it has a 90 degree angle that matches the back corner. Nice find!

Thanks! It really is perfect. I had to move the light up a bit, it's about 5-6 inches from the surface now but with 72 watts of T5-HO I am not to worried
