Cool - an aquarium with jungle animals on parade! (). Will you be putting a background on the tank? You shoudl also consider raising up that power strip in case of water leaks/drips. Nice job on the stand, by the way. Can't wait to see where you go with this.

Yep that's an older picture. I have half of the moss wall on the tank done. It looks like I might have to wait a while to get some more moss though, so it's only going to be 3/4 done for a little while.

You're clicking on the wrong link on photobucket; to insert your pics into the thread, use the link on the bottom that has the [img] tags on either side.

You need to update your pics, I want to see it planted! I love bowfront tanks.

That's a very nice DIY stand. Bowfront stands are especially difficult

Ya I know. I will get some soon. I'm still getting plants from sales on the S&S and I just hooked up my pressurized CO2 system yesterday. I get some new pics. in a couple of days when they really start taking off.

On a side note...How do you modify the thread title?

This is my new piece of Driftwood/sunken wood that my brother and I brought up from the bottom of the lake this past weekend. I has been washed and treated. The plants are not planted just weighted down. Sorry for the cloudy pics. the fluorite got stirred up. I will take some better ones tonight. I'm going to need help with plant placement as soon as I get better pics. All the plants you see are thanks to cryptkeeper. He defiantly out did himself. Thanks again.

The left 1/4 of the back wall also needs to have a section of moss for it. Once the other 3/4 fill in I will be triming placing some more there. there is also java fern and anubias that are currently floating in the tank that will be tied to the wood.

Thanks at least some one seen it. It took a long time to obtain. Diving in a dense underwater forest is very hard let alone trying to get such a big piece of DW to the surface.
