Here's some driftwood I picked up at the beach for the tank. I had bought some manzanita but I don't really like it any more for the scape I had in mind. It was too thin and branchy.
It is only half wet so it looks weird. Photo doesn't do it justice.
Here's the HC explosion.
Remember those tiny little bits of l. Repens that were in the tank before? Well they went CRAZY and took over the tank. I had to spend forever pulling them all out, some of the roots were 6" long. I pulled out about half an ice cream bucket of the stuff.
