    I received my box today. What to say, superb drifts. Most of them are in variety of shapes. I would recommend this box for a 30G tank or more. I am sure I don't have space to use all of them in my tank.

    Good one! Thanks Tom

    Hey Tom,

    I don't know if you still checking your pm. I got your reference from Shawn123 about your driftwood package 10. Just waiting on to see them. Pls do let me know once you ship them.

    I received the box of driftwood today. Looks great. Cleaning it tomorrow, can't wait to see it in the tank. I've sent the payment through PayPal. Thanks again.

    Hey Tom,

    I just read a post of yours from 2007 on the barrreport. I'm looking into starting a new tank 40g breeder. MTS capped with sand. HC, Blyxa Jap. and some moss on driftwood. Going pressurized, 100 watt t5, ei (possibly). Have you ever tried a dry start with moss? Xmas moss specifically. I think a dry start would be fun to try, just not sure about the moss. Any thoughts would be awesome. I definitely enjoy your presence on TPT. Thank you!

    Thanks for all the info!

    Am a newbie and am soaking some miracle gro organic pm which I'll cap with black diamond.

    More jungle-ish than design.

    I look f wd to reading more of your posts!

    Hey Plantbrain - Tom Barr,

    I am starting my first planted tank and I'm starting to figure out a design. I really want to use driftwood; I saw another individuals tank on this forum that I loved the driftwood he used. He sent me to you because you're the person who sold the driftwood to him. Anyways the guys name is Coast Guard Jon from DC. I was hoping you might be able to help me out.

    Let me know --

    Hi there!
    The only reason I decided to join this forum was from seeing your thread. Your tank is stunning. Please tell me where you purchase your unique and beautiful plants from?

    hi Tom setting up a 118 x 30 x 30" with custom sump, need an advice with CO2 reactor! thought of something similar as your 120g big reactor or 3 small reactors before the returns! would be great to hear your experience thanks
