  2. Aquascaping
    I've been thinking about doing a forest's edge/ meadow aquascape, but I'm not sure on what driftwood/wood people are using to achieve that awesome tree trunk look. I thought spider wood at first, but I think it would be to light in color and not straight enough... Tank will be a 30 long, 1/3rd...
  3. Aquascaping
    I'm working on my first scape. I've been attempting to make a moss tree with Java Moss and a small stick. It's filling in nicely, but it's kind of "disappearing". And of course it was meant to be the focal point of the tank. The Rotala growing behind it is almost the same colour and with...

    So, I just got this 40G and was setting it up, and taking down my previous planted tank - a 29G that I had been playing with.

    Is ash wood safe for aquariums? And if it is, do I need to dry it or do anything special to it? Due to an emerald ash borer infestation my husband had to cut down two beautiful but nearly dead trees. Some of the branches are pretty neat. I know I'd have to remove the bark and scrape the outer...

    Does anyone know how people build gorgeous little "trees" out of driftwood and moss? What does the moss actually attach to? Also, what's the easiest way to attach moss to driftwood? I've only used thread before and it was supposed to dissolve but it never did :( Thinking of setting up a 5 gallon...
