Your parents use to be planted tank aquascaper. That looks like it was made for planted tanks.

yeah, he was just asking where to get. I am. There are so many people being extremely generous to me. They are giving me tanks, driftwood, filters, and even substrate like sms/eco/as. I feel like a horrible person because I am giving nothing back.
