I don't even keep tanks anymore, but I can't stop messing around with rocks.



Ryu-oh stone, manzanita, 5-10 gallons. I would probably plant it "perspective style", that's what all the cool kids are doing right?

How are you tankless? You had the entire ADA Mini collection and the only ADA t-shirt I've ever seen, and you were "the keeper of the UG." Say it ain't so.

Well, back in December of last year, I basically did This.

I had already been slowly getting out of the game (I haven't kept UG for like half a year), but that prompted somewhat of a reevaluation in my life. Mostly I realized that I suddenly needed to put together the cash to get my motorcycle running. I ended up selling all of my tanks by my 45-F, which is sitting empty ATM.

Though ironically, I may be buying back my mini-S for my mom.

I still have the ADA Tshirt tho. B)

That would be really nice Nano scape.

Sucks about what happened. I did about the same a long time ago (I don't know if you know the roads up by Lake Chabot) and I was lucky to go off on one of the only turns around that area that wasn't a cliff.

I can't tell what size tank you would need but you may be able to get a free 10 gallon of CL, just to take advantage. I would actually donate a 10 gallon and light for that project if you want to come to the Walnut Creek area (other members, please don't PM me about this).

It's sized roughly to fit my 45-F. Not really interested in more tanks, but thanks for the offer.

I figured a standard 10 gallon wouldn't be up your alley but if you really didn't want to pay anything, but were willing to put in the effort, I figured I throw it out (assuming it would fit). It does deserve a scape and I absolutely love it, but sometimes you are just out of the game, either for now, or for good. I just like the "twisted" feeling, kind of Halloweenish, but obviously very natural and flowing. Plus, it doesn't remind me of anything I have seen before.

OK....I will shut up now lol.

I actually have some extra 10 and 15 gallon tanks that I just haven't been able to get rid of, but I just don't have the energy.

Funnily enough, I don't even like the manzanita. I only used it because I had a giant branch of it in my living room that I needed to break down.

I think the manzanita makes it. If I had the funds for another tank, I would likely try to get you to sell that to me, lol.

If you ever want a box of twigs like that to mess around with, I can easily put together box, I'm swimming in the stuff.

I don't have a small enough tank unless my girlfriend lets me take over the little 5 gallon I set up for her. If she is game, I would love to. That probably means she will give me the green light after you get rid of it, lol. I will PM you if I am "allowed to", but don't save it for me if you need to get rid of it.

It's actually my mini-s that I sold off. I posted a wtb thread for a similarly size tank, and the guy who bought it from me agreed to sell it back. Funny how that works.
