Yes, mess around the scape a little. You'll like it all the more. A black background will help.

It will get a black background. I'm trying to decide what kind. How hard is it to paint it without moving it?'I don't want one from an LFS because water gets between it and it's a major pain in the butt

I think I'll take the very front stick and move it so it's not as angled up and it will go from the front right to the left side in front of the stump. the smallest stick there in the front I will just decrease the angel a bit

You could get one of those small rollers and roll it on if you have a few inches. I'm almost thinking if you'd move one of the back sticks, it'd be better looking.

Just filled it and most of the wood sticks are floating ( idk why when they were soaking they sunk by themselves immediately. They have been outside without water for a few days. Are they just not waterlogged anymore?

I'm so sad!

I just drill mine into a piece of slate to keep them down if they don't want to sink, also makes it more stable if they are smaller pieces.

I would take the piece that is going left and flip it and put it on the left side by the stump and all the branches would form a like tree canopy affect. If you plan on planting the tank too it would look really cool covered in moss.

finally back! everything looks pretty good. i added the heater today. the filter is still running. fully seeded. but the wood has some white fungus on it, like all new wood does. do you think it will go away by itself?

im ready to add fish now. unless im missing something. im just a little nervous that i put chlorinated water in it. i put the water in 5 days ago. do you think it dissipated yet? safe for fish?

here is the picture as promised!


the wood has that little white fuzzy stuff. and there are some mosquito larvae, but the fish will eat those just fine.

im going monday to pick up fish from rachel! im getting a pair of angels, 6 otos, and a Bn pleco. she doesnt have any cardinals as of now. but i may get some nerites for a different tank.

i found a LFS today!!! well my mom did, i wasnt with her, but she said it was nice. its called paxton aquarium and pet shop. so i might get cardinals there, she said everything looks clean. but ill decide when i get there wether i wanna trust them or not. hopefully its nice.

what kind of chlorinator you think? if i can find seachem prime ill get that.
