Well I finally put in the rock barrier. I couldn't find the big rocks I was looking for but I like what I found and seems to look ok. Next step is to get the driftwood. Do you guys know where to get good manzanita branches that would fit my design and are a good price. I am thinking of getting it from Manzantia.com. If I got it from there will the Ap1 package work? Any Advice will be appreciated .

You can get more flow out of the filter if you cut down your tubes to just the size you need them. Instead of them twisting up on you like that.

I think you should get Hygrophylia Kompacta. It grows to about 5" high and can get bushy without constant trimming needed.

+1
Some other Hygro varieties would do well too, with a little regular trimming.

Well I ordered some driftwood yesterday from PC1 and from what I can tell they look like it will all work out. She was very helpful.
