You may well have quartz rock near you, I have no idea! But anywhere quartz crystals can be found quartzite rocks can. And if you really like it, I can probably gather some up next trip to the stream and take pics. If there are some you want I'll cover shipping.

No, I can cover shipping and yes keep your eye out for a rock or two for me!

Many landscape rock supply places have various kinds of decorative quartz rocks in various colors. They'll often sell smaller quantities by the bin. I bought a bunch when I landscaped my yard years ago. I sometimes come across smaller ones when replanting or cleaning up overgrown areas that I clean up & put in my tank. A gift that keeps on giving....

@second I will try to remember to snap a photo when I get home. Hasn't changed a whole lot since 3 months ago, outside of pruning and removing a few plants though.

I've kinda let it grow wild. Funny how seeing a photo can make you realize you need to prune and rescape more than looking at the actual aquarium.

Well, I've been battling a cold and put off cleaning out the other 125 jungle and decided to tackle this one over the weekend. Pulled a lot of Val and floaters and added an EI 2009 that was buried in another tank. I'd planned on removing the rocks and cleaning underneath them (which has never happened), but I stirred up so much ADA dust pulling plants that I decided I'd wait until later. Here's the tank after the dust had settled.

Okay, that explains why I've had problems linking images. thanks!

Yeah, that's from the Thrilla! I boxed Silver Gloves as a kid and Ali was always my favorite. Ran across that one at an estate sale, signed by Frazier and Ali. Both were still living at the time and it had some sun damage so I think I got it for $200. No idea if it's valuable now, but I wouldn't want to part with it anyway.

That's awesome. Both that you boxed and finding that jewel of a promo... I don't stay too current these days, but have lost many hours/days to TWOB Classics on YouTube. Ali was a force indeed

The Thrilla in Manila was a special one. They had to air it at 10 AM for it to be shown at night in the US. After turning the lights on, it was over 120 degrees and 100% humidity and both fighters were exhausted by the 1st round. Both fighters also lost over 5 pounds during the bout and at the end of the 14th, Ali asked his trainer to cut off his gloves, he was done. But unbeknownst to his corner the ref had seen enough and called the fight since Frazier had taken so much damage and was so exhausted. It was a golden age for the sweet science, and I doubt the sport will ever rise to the prominence it had then.
