Thanks it has helped me plan it and the tank is covered. When i just started I got 1 hatchet and put it in a covered 10 gallon and it tryed to get out several times but my worst escape artist was one of my african clawed frogs when I was little. I wouldn't be able to find it for days and then me and my dad looked everywhere for it and it always ended up in the filter which was a biowheel filter and this was a big frog. Sorry to bore you with my stories.
Also rickztahone I am going to go to a local landscaping store and look for small stones. I tryed my local creek and there was nothing I liked.
