so thats the clay you were baking the other day during our chat! Nicely done. I think they will look great when smothered with lush green terrestrial growth of the orchids and broms. Very inventive Bill.

Waiting to get you and the wife up here! good eye: about 31 if the math on length and girth are correct.

Just had 100% mortality in my salmon tank. every single egg..out of 250 of them is dead. I must have outgased some chems into the water. I guess my little local lake wont be getting stocked this year.

wow the vines look super, as do the shrooms. I dont know how you get that furry, textured look with your peat/coco fiber. It looks so realistic. Every time I use the titebond, I get a very smooth look. DId you use silicone?? what ever you did, it looks good brother!

Thanks guys. I thought the mushrooms would make a nice touch JD, i did the titebond as usual, but as it was still wet with the second coat, i sprinkled a mix on it that i made, as well as some fresh peat moss. That's why mine looks so bushy
