Tank looks great btw, if you don't mind post the full tank shot in the blackwater tank showcase thread in the aquascaping section of the forum.
Evidently! Initially he wanted half a bag of sour skittles, half an order of gas station nachos, and a framed photo of betty white, but I negotiated it down. The gas station in question was on the opposite end of town, and I wasn't going to eat half of either.
I just took new full tank shots tonight, I can definitely drop one in the blackwater showcase thread, though I just trimmed it yesterday, so it's looking pretty hacked up.
