The latest news:
Purchased my CO2 system, (the one Brian_Cali77 references above). I purchased a 5lb tank from amazon as well as a few other odds and ends.
Stopped by the tractor supply company and picked up a bag of black diamond blasting sand. That is really cool looking stuff! I've tested rinsing it and working with it a little bit.
I was up on the north shore of lake superior and picked up some driftwood and a few rocks along the shore.
So little by little I'm amassing the components. Been researching plants and reading some books. I recently purchased a book called "Freshwater Aquarium Models" by John Tullock. Interesting book with lots of different suggestions for designs. So I'm narrowing in on what I want to do.
Need to design the stand and pick up the wood yet.
Now my biggest challenge is finding the time to begin putting all of this together. I'm hoping to get going before the holidays but we'll see.
