Me too. A few thoughts on the new scape...

1) I know I like open spaces.

...as opposed to how it eventually ended up looking...

2) I've never had anything but rocks in my scape. I wanna try putting driftwood in with moss.

Looks awesome... I almost spat my tea at the computer screen with your first photo of buying your tank, thanks for that!

Thought I'd say hi and say I've found this thread very interesting indeed. Having spent an absolute fortune since starting fishkeeping last year, it's great to see the success you've had on a budget.

So I don't get over excited and try doing this with my tank, could you please fill me in on your water ph/kh/gh to see if I'm similar.

Some of the sticks I got though must have dried out a bit on the shore since they wouldn't sink.
Hopefully someone more knowledgeable will correct me if this is wrong but boiling helps kill off any parasites / nasties that are in the wood, as much as helping it sink. I would definitely still boil stuff, whether it sinks or not.
