Can you believe it's been a year and that stupid big piece of wood still hasn't sunk @.@ Btw Ignore the haphazard way it's looking just storing the plants lol.

That's a lotta green!

Did you boil the wood?

I like to lay out everything I'm working with in front of the tank first.

Well all right! I have three or more berried cherries, so that is nice.

I don't see any saddles on my tigers, so I am growing more positive they are all males. I'll keep you posted with that though.

I've never had neos survive on me, to be honest. I know the mechanics and I have all the knowledge, but when I finally gathered all the knowledge, I only had female shrimp left.

I'm definitely ready for the Cardinia plunge, so I'm getting SSS CRS for my other aquarium after I get everything perfect on it.

Maybe I missed it in this thread, but the only tank I see for sale that is similar to yours is divided into 5 compartments for bettas. Was this what yours was? If so how difficult was it to remove the dividers? Thanks!

Yep! That's this tank. If you read DBP's description of it (Their product PDF is fun to look at) you'll see their divider tanks are all removable. They're neat.

I just picked up a little 1 gal tall, but I'll keep the divider for two crayfish

They make a 1.5 gal long and this -- using the volume formula to disprove my old volume number -- 3 gal long tank.

Do you like the 18" 3g tank. Mine should be here today. Gonna make some concrete banks to form a sort of mock riverbede of sand. Then surround it by soil and moss.

If the only tool you carry is a hammer, everything starts to look like a nail.

That sounds neat. I'd love to see it when done. Yes I love mine. They're easy to scape and make dynamic.

For some reason, I love the rim on this. I don't always love rims, but with the nice black seal, it all looks great.
