Heavier than his. With 2 20lb boxes you would have probably double what he has in his tank. Yeah I have medium, small and even rubble. Medium can be 4-6"x4-6" (ruffly) as they are not perfect squares. If you got 20lbs of medium, small and rubble that would be a really good amount of rock. You want to have enough so you can play around with ideas. The worst is when you don't have enough. Better safe than sorry. As well my minimum sale is 1 large flat rate box at 20lbs of rock. So the total is $37.00

Those rocks are amazing. The layout seems to have a lot of depth to it. Tons of potential here!!

Thanks man, Mike told me he stopped by your place the other day. You are growing different kinds of algae? That is cool. I can't tell you where they are. lol

Dave, you need to compile all these post and start a journal in the journals section.



There are 2 types of people on this forum. Those that have algae, and those that lie and say they don't.

True, I wondered about that. When I make my next update, which will be soon, I will get all my posts and start a journal. I will add even more detail as well.

I love the look of this dark dragon stone with dark substrate, it is so atmospheric and the plants and going to explode with colour in the landscape. I absolutely want to try this when I can afford a third tank, love it, so inspirational thanks!

Thanks a million for the kind words. I finally finished the DIY hanging kit and will make a journal of this tank ASAP.
