Dollface I really like the flat rock right in the center, It's got such a great shape. Thanks for sharing.

macclellan I went with smooth rocks in one of my 10g tanks. Just a few river rocks I found here and there.

Craigthor I use rounded rocks in my scape check it out in the Nano section. The last pictures posted have all rounded rocks with no sharp edges. Several are really low in the scape also.

Dollface No, i'm good, they're a little to dark and round, I'm thinking i'll go for somthing flatter.

bsmith They have some dimples on the surface but other than that theyre pretty smooth.

Are those the lava rocks from that guy here in the S&S? If so, how smooth are they?

Thanks alot, Left C, but I'm looking for scapes without driftwood, actually. I'm trying to get an idea how to plan a 'kid proof' tank that can't have any sharp edges cause of a fish I'm looking to keep.

Dollface Keep em coming, guys, those Oliver Knott ones are pretty much exactly what I was looking for. I hadn't seen them on pervious adventures through those galleries.
