how did you get the crypt out without disturbing everything else and clouding the water?

You don't in most respects. Go real slllloooowwww, but it will still kick up some crud.

D.gilly Oh dear lord. I'll tell yah, that something I didn't know. Oh well. If the crypts sprout up form the roots it will be off to the swap and shop.

EdTheEdge Yup, it's obsideon. I got it from Thompson building supply in torrance Ca. Cheap too.

Storm_Rider Like kzr750r1 said, I pulled it up real........ slow. There was a little cloud, but not to bad. The filter took care of it quickly The picture was about 2 minutes after it got pulled, so you can see it wasn't to bad. I'm still worried that I'm going to cycle the tank a bit, so its getting a water change later.

kzr750r1Thanks! Glad you liked the rock, just trying to do something different. Everyone does the ADA rocks japanese style, but I'm trying to pull in elements from my local region. Plus it was a boatload cheaper

Kind of like the monolith in 2001: A Space Odyssey. Wish I could sit through that entire move in one sitting... It's so slow.

Do you hear a vocal chorus screaming at you when returning home from work.

And the theme music.
Bum Bum Bum Bum daaaaaaaaa..... daaaaaaa.... daaaaaaaaa..... Duh Dummmmmmmmmmmm...Bum Bum Bum Bum.....ect..

The crypt will sprout some runner growth but they will be small and easy to pluck out when you find them. Or let em grow out a bit as it will provide a different texture than the HC carpet. They should stay complact with that fixture.

Thanks for sharing this setup. I like it. Plus you know that rock is inert. It's friggin glass.

That is a sweet tank. I have a suggestion though... Try placing sandblasted window film as the background to the tank. You should be able to get it at a building supply store. It basically looks like frosted glass and acts like it, but is nothing more than a vinyl sticker. It'll still let light in from the back, but make the back of the tank look like it has a white background, this way the room that's viewable in the back won't distract the viewer from the tank.

Does any of that make sense to you? If it doesn't, I'll try to get some pics up of what I'm talking about.
